Rubrics and the Speedgrader

Rubrics in Canvas can be built and used while grading student work. Rubrics can help instructors communicate requirements for grading to students and help them best prepare their submissions to meet standards. In addition, they help standardize grading guidelines to provide consistency for students and teachers.

SpeedGrader allows instructors to provide detailed feedback and annotations to students directly on their submissions.

In this brief training, we review:

  • the process of creating and deploying rubrics,

  • attaching rubrics to assignments,

  • and the capabilities of SpeedGrader which include familiarizing you with feedback options when grading student work.
