Building Better Rubrics

Rubrics are an excellent and unbiased way to grade student work, and Canvas makes it easy to integrate them directly into course assignments and SpeedGrader to better support both you and your students. 

Join us as we demonstrate best practices for building rubrics into Canvas assignments and SpeedGrader that effectively and efficiently assess student work. This webinar will offer best practices including organizing a rating system and related expectations, varying those ratings across criteria according to their point value, using active voice to detail expectations, ensuring that the expectations are set to the correct learning level for the course, and directly tying the requirements for assignments to Module Learning Outcomes. 

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Use Canvas rubrics to provide students with detailed feedback 
  2. Build flexible ratings in within Canvas rubrics to provide a better range for precise grading 
  3. Create rubrics that provide specific instructions to exceed assignment expectations
