Export aggregate rubric scores to identify strengths and weaknesses of class as a whole

Export aggregate rubric scores to identify strengths and weaknesses of class as a whole

(28)
I'd like Canvas to be able to generate a single table that shows the rubric line item scores for all students.  Then I would easily be able to tell which items students struggled most with, and plan subsequent lessons accordingly.

 @jbower2 ​,

There was a similar, but broader, feature request   that was archived in August for failing to get 100 votes. There was some discussion there about exporting rubrics, and  @BKINNEY  had an LTI application she was using. I started writing a tool, but my primary job beckoned and I've got too many things going on, so nothing has been done for a couple of weeks.

There was also a discussion Export Rubrics  where  @r_v_jones ​ shared a script that he was using to do something similar.

If you haven't read those discussions yet, you might take a look at them. Some of them might be useful.

Thank you for your submission,  @jbower2 ​. This idea will be open for vote during the next voting cycle.

You've already got a head start in that there seems to be already be some conversations around this topic (thanks  @James ​ for linking to those). You may want to go into these discussions and help generate some support for this idea.

Yes! We need to be able to get OUT all of the data we put INTO Canvas. If people are grading via a rubric the score isn't the composite score. The grade isn't 85 - it's 20, 30, 10, 15, 5. The components matter as much if not more than the composite. You're grading BY rubric criteria and students AND teachers need to be able to see and compare that data easily. While outcomes somewhat addresses these issues, the inability to assess one's own teaching and students' progress through a simple export of rubrics is a glaring lack of functionality.

Keep sharing this!

I agree that it is really important to be able to export rubric scores.

A workaround that I used this semester is to use Outcomes to build your Rubrics:

1) In the "Outcomes" window I built a New Outcome for each Criterion that I want in my Rubric

2) I change the standard Outcome descriptors (Exceeds expectations, etc) for the descriptors I want for my rubric criterion

3) Then I make a new Rubric with all the Outcome Criteria I wrote previously.  Instead of using the "Add Criterion" button use the "Find Outcome" button.

4) Once I used the new rubrics in my course I was able to download the results using the Learning Mastery Gradebook

I hope this helps.

Boy-oh-boy we would love to do this to gather more granular data around rubrics. Unfortunately, we are not going to be worked on in 2016. In the meanwhile, there is the option to get this data from the rubric if you tie criteria to an outcome.

Is anyone out there using Outcomes well? We have a department relying on Outcomes for accreditation data and Canvas support itself has described this feature as "finicky". It's discouraging that this won't be worked on now, and that we're going to be working with a problematic feature for such an important data set.

Hi,  @jbower2  & lse224.

I'm late to the conversation, but I've been reading through all the discussion threads, and this is essentially what I have recently proposed in .  My idea is a little different, but has the same essential goal.  Whether we could access the specific rubric data via csv file or Canvas Data, it doesn't matter to me.  I'm glad to know there are a lot of us asking for this kind of feature.  As many of us get charged with building a culture of assessment in our institutions, tools/features like this will go a long way toward achieving that end.
Thanks for the great ideas and discussion!

I'm late to this party, but wanted to add my voice to this feature request.  We absolutely must be able to export rubric data from Canvas, whether through a report or in the Data Portal.  This is information that is being asked for by accrediting institutions and not being able to access it is a serious limitation of the Canvas product, rendering rubrics almost useless.  Why put data in that you can't get back out? Please reconsider working on this feature as soon as possible!

Would any users be willing to share additional information about methods they are using to export rubric scores, or even rubrics associated to courses/assignments?  We have started using Outcomes in 2016, but are using them to relate to degree program outcome mastery, not assignment rubric scores.

I too am late to this conversation, but agree with it's importance.

Recently I have been asked for data that takes this idea just a bit further: analysis of sub-account level rubrics.

How are student performing on rubrics across multiple courses, or multiple departments?

I have created an idea that addresses Rubric data in more general terms:

I believe that if the data was available in general, institutions could work with the data to create reports that meet their specific requirements.  Please vote for this idea as well, if you find value in having the ability to do additional analysis and reporting around rubric data.

 @jbower2 ‌ thank you taking the time to post this idea. Many contributors mentioned outcomes but I never asked the necessary follow up questions. Can you or any other contributors elaborate on why you chose not to use the outcomes in your rubric?

From what I understand, to get the rubric data criterion by criterion, I would essentially have to duplicate each criterion in an outcome. That seems like a massive duplication of effort, one that I will likely have to do until this feature is built in to Canvas. As others have said, I need this for our accreditation reporting.

I want to be able to export the results of ANY rubric I use for grading- not just rubrics linked to outcomes.

I'd like to echo Fleur's thoughts. Exporting results for each rubric row for any rubric would be ideal. It would help me see trends in student performance which would allow me to drive my instruction. 

For example, I could easily use the student by student/row by row data to determine average points earned on each row. That would show me what was high/low, on average. I could also count how many students earned (for example), 3 points. vs. 4 points vs. 0 points. This would help me see a heatmap of where students were "close" to the standard expectation compared to a group of outliers pulling down an average.

Mccall Smith Could you please give us an update of this feature request. It is on the rader. Will it be fixed in 2018?

Thanks for the inquiry.  You'll see on the https://community.canvaslms.com/community/ideas?sr=search&searchId=9b6ac576-a2a9-48dc-836a-a9aa165bf...‌ that there are a couple priorities around rubrics that are in different stages of the development process.  This idea is not part of the scope of those projects though.  Please continue to follow this idea and it will be updated if/when updates are available.  Also, follow the https://community.canvaslms.com/community/ideas?sr=search&searchId=9b6ac576-a2a9-48dc-836a-a9aa165bf...‌ to keep an eye on what priorities are in the dev process!
