Copying rubrics

Copying a rubric creates a new rubric based on an existing rubric in the same org unit, allowing you to easily reuse it in a course. The new rubric has the same properties, levels and criteria, and is shared with the same org units as the original rubric.

  1. From the navbar, under Assessments dropdown, select Rubrics.
    Rubrics menu selection
  2. On the Rubrics page, from the context menu of the rubric you want to copy, select Copy.
    Copy rubric
  3. Select on the new rubric to edit it.

It is also possible to copy a single rubric criterion to facilitate reusing criteria that have already been created.

  1. Open the rubric you want to edit.
    Edit rubric for the existing rubric.
  2. On the Edit Rubrics page, select the action menu beside the criterion name.
  3. Select Copy Row.

    Note: The new criterion is added under the original with the criterion name Copy of [name of original criterion]. It is automatically highlighted so you can rename the new criterion.

  4. Rename the newly created criterion.
