  5. Using Rubrics in Canvas with Hypothesis

Canvas does not currently allow a rubric to be added to an existing LTI assignment. However, we have found that using the instructions below provides a workaround to this limitation:

1. Create a new “On Paper” assignment

Navigate to your Assignments page and click the “+ Assignment” button

Select Submission Type as On Paper

Scroll to the bottom of the assignment page and click the Save button to save the new assignment.

2. Add the rubric to the assignment

Viewing the new empty assignment, click the “+ Rubric” button, and add an existing rubric or create a new rubric

3. Edit the assignment to add an Hypothesis reading

With the rubric now added, click the Edit button to edit the assignment again

Scroll to Submission Type. Change the selection to External Tool and click the Find button

Click Hypothesis from the list of tools

Choose the source and document for your Hypothesis reading. For additional information about these options please see our main page on creating Hypothesis assignments in Canvas.

With the document chosen, click the Select button

Add any additional configuration options or settings to your assignment, and click the Save button to complete.

4. Use Speedgrader to view the rubric

You will now be able to use the rubric when grading the Hypothesis reading in Speedgrader.
