< 30 min.

Rubrics are valuable ways to share expectations for an assignment and how you will grade it. In Canvas, you can add a unique rubric to any assignment or use one you’ve already created. The rubric will also appear in SpeedGrader to streamline your grading.

Get Started

  1. Select an assignment you’ve created (Note: this only works for already saved/created assignments).
  2. Select + Rubric [a] under the due date information.
  3. Add your “Criteria” and “Ratings” then Create Rubric.
