The Canvas integration enables instructors to synchronize assignments created in Canvas with the Campus Labs Rubrics tool and allows for rubric-based assessment and evaluation to be conducted directly inside the Canvas application. 

Once your institution's LMS administrator has enabled the Canvas/Rubrics integration faculty and staff will have the ability to create and edit rubric templates within the LMS, as well as evaluate students using their chosen rubric.

Step One: LMS Enrollments & Assignments
The first step in this process is to ensure we have students enrolled in our course and have some assignments created. From the screenshots below you can see that this course has four students enrolled and three assignments.




Step Two: Sync Assignments & Enrollments
Our next step is to click on the *Campus Labs Rubrics button. Once you click on this button you will be notified that Rubrics is currently syncing your course information (enrollments, assignments, grades, and comments). 


*It is possible your institution's LMS administrator has provided a different label. 


Once the sync has finished you will want to click on a given assignment to either A) assign a rubric template to the given assignment, or B) **evaluate a student.



**If there are no students enrolled in the course or the enrollments are pending you will be unable to evaluate students.

Step Three: Evaluate Students

When begin evaluating students you will see the word ""incomplete"" in bold blue letters. In order to begin evaluating a given student, you will want to click the edit button to the right and fill out the rubric. Once you fill out the rubric and click done you will see that score reflected per student.

A warning icon will appear in the average score card until all students have been evaluated. This will not prevent other students scores from being synced. You can prevent scores being synced back into the grade book by simply toggling the option on or off for each student.

Editing a student score is as easy as clicking the edit button again and updating any comments or dimension scores. Such updates will be synced into the grade book, replacing the previous score and comments.


Step Four: Sync Scores and Comments

Scores and comments from a student's evaluation will be synced automatically back into the course grade book, as long as the ""Allow Sync"" is toggled on. In the screenshot below you can see that the scores from above have been successfully synced into the course's grade book. For Joe Peters, you can see that the comments from the rubric are viewable by hovering over the score and clicking the comment bubble in the top right corner.
