Hacking Canvas: Making the Rubric Tool Work for You

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Rubrics are used for numerous purposes in higher education including helping students self-assess their own work, accommodating peer review of student work, and performing both formative and summative assessments for papers, projects, and other assignments. In most academic circles when rubrics are discussed, two types of rubrics emerge, analytic and holistic rubrics. While these two rubrics are the most common, we have identified four distinctly different types of rubrics that we will share examples of as we briefly discuss the pros and cons, use cases, and best practices for using each one. Many instructional designers and faculty have used the rubric tool in ANGEL for one or more of the purposes outlined above for years and have come to rely on them for grading. As almost everyone in the Penn State community knows by now, ANGEL is being replaced with Canvas as Penn State's official learning management system by the end of 2017. The two systems are very different from one another, but the good news is that Canvas also has an easy-to-use rubric tool that makes grading more consistent, faster, and all around easier. The highlight of this session will be learning how to develop each of the four different types of rubrics using the rubric tool available in Canvas.
