How to access Rubrics in myCourses Canvas course:
Canvas has moved Rubrics to the Course Menu area from its previous location of Outcomes. The reason for this move was to make Rubrics more accessible and provide a more intuitive workflow since Outcomes are not required when using a rubric.
The Rubrics link is a course tool for faculty and can’t be accessed by students. The Rubrics area displays all rubrics associated to any course the faculty is associated with. A Rubric is meant to be associated directly on an assessment; assignment, discussions or quizzes. The same rubric can be used for multiple assessments. Be aware that when a rubric is used in multiple assessment it can’t be changed.
