Adding Existing Outcomes to Your Canvas Rubrics

Reading Time: < 1 minutes

In the previous post Adding Existing Rubrics to Your Canvas Course, we’ve talked about finding an existing rubric and using the rubric in your assignment.  

Today, we’re talking about adding existing outcomes to an assignment rubric.  

Step 1: Add existing outcomes to your course 

  1. Click the Outcomes link in the course navigation to open the Outcomes page. 
  2. Click the “Find” button to open the Find Outcomes window. 
  3. In the Find Outcomes window, choose Account Standards -> Cedarville University. Here, you will find the outcome folders provided by Cedarville such as Oral Communication and Written Communication.
  4. Click the outcome folder that you want to add to your course.  
  5. Click the “Import” button. 

Step 2: Add existing outcomes as criteria to an assignment rubric

  1. Open the rubric to edit. 
  2. Click the “Find Outcome” link in the bottom of the rubric table.
  3. Click the desired outcome folder and choose an outcome. 
  4. Uncheck “Use this criterion for scoring” if you want to use the outcome for mastery evaluation. 
  5. Click the “Import” button. 
  6. Repeat 2-5 to add all outcomes you need. 

The rubric is now ready for use. Once you add the outcomes to rubrics, you cannot delete the outcomes from your course. If you need to change the outcomes, you must remove them from rubrics first. For more information, check the Canvas resources below:
