Canvas - Rubrics Criterion Range Enabled

Posted: 10:25:36, Thursday, Oct 26, 2017   Expiration: 11:25:36, Thursday, Nov 9, 2017

Instructure recently releases an update to the Rubrics allowing criterions to include a point range instead of just an individual point value. This feature is available in both account- and course-level rubrics.


When the Range checkbox is allowed and selected, each rating displays a maximum and minimum point value. Ranges are managed the same way as non-range rubrics. Ratings can be divided, edited, and removed individually, and total point value changes automatically adjust for all rating values.

Rubric Range Check Box


When a rubric is added to an assignment, range options are not displayed if the free-form comment option is selected.

In SpeedGrader, rubric values can be selected by the entire range. Students can also view the ranges in the assignment details page and when viewing the rubric on the Grades page. The first value in the range is assigned to the point value.
