There is a template that can be applied when making a new rubric from within an assignment (instead of resources).  

Step 1 : Within the assignment (which I title in a way to reference the rubric I'm building) choose "create new" for Scale/Rubric.  

Step 2 : When the rubric form appears, in the upper right-hand corner is a link "Apply Grading Scale" --- 

Step 3 : Choose "LSSU Learning Scale" and the template will automatically update to 5 columns and with our performance descriptors.
