We aim to bring greater clarity and control to the grading process. As such, we have updated the Rubric API, which extends the capabilities of our Gradebook Columns API. This API includes rubric association information.

Now, when retrieving information about gradebook columns using the endpoints below, users gain insights into the rubric associations linked to each column:

  • GET /learn/api/public/v2/courses/{courseId}/gradebook/columns
  • GET /learn/api/public/v2/courses/{courseId}/gradebook/columns/{columnId}

By including the query parameter ‘?expand=rubricAssociations’  in the API requests, the user receives an enriched payload that includes rubric association information.

This enhancement contributes to better-informed decisions and improved assessment management for our users.

For administrators: To make use of the new endpoints, the REST integration user must have the following privileges: “Course/Organization Control Panel (Tools) > Rubrics > View Rubric”
