Student Self Evaluation in Canvas
Canvas does not currently have a direct function that is automatically attached to an assignment that allows for your students to do a self evaluation, but there is a workaround through New Quizzes.
The instructions below will show you how to create a self evaluation for your students based on a rubric outline that you have for your assignment.
Navigate to Quizzes
Click + Quiz and select New Quizzes (Beta), then click Submit
Fill out the necessary information and settings for your quiz, then click Build
For best practices we recommend that you name the quiz "[AssignmentName] Self Evaluation" and assign it to the students with a due date.
Add instructions, click on the blue +, and select Multiple Choice
Fill out the information based off of the first item on your rubric
See image below for an example.
Under the Options dropdown, select Vary points by answer
To the right of each answer an entry field will appear.
Match the points with the rubric answers
Click on the blue + below the question and repeat steps 5 through 7 until all rubric items have been completed
Click Return in the upper right-hand corner
