Canvas - Using the Rubric Importer Tool
Instructors can import rubrics from Google Sheets or Excel using the Import Rubric button in the UW-Madison Canvas instance.
Disclaimer: This feature required custom coding at the campus level. It may break (temporarily or permanently) after future updates to Canvas. This will not affect any rubrics already created, but it may interfere with your ability to create additional rubrics using the button. Please contact the DoIT Help Desk if the importer stops working.
