How to attach a rubric to an assignment


Rubrics are created in the Turnitin assignment via the GradeMark Rubric manager. You are able to create a rubric and attach it to a Turnitin assignment both before your students have submitted their assignment, and afterwards.

NOTE: it is best practice to have the rubric available for your students to access prior to their assignment submission.

Before students submit

You can create and attach a rubric to a Turnitin assignment via the Turnitin assignment settings. To do this scroll down to the GradeMark Options and click on  'Launch Rubric Manager'.

1. To Create a rubric click on 'Launch Rubric Manager' link

GradeMark options

2. To attach an existing Turnitin rubric, click on the drop down menu to locate and attach the rubric to the assignment.

NOTE: this will state 'no rubric' by default which means no current rubric is attached to the assignment. If a rubric is attached you will see the title of the rubric or it will state 'rubric belongs to another teacher'. If this is the case and you choose to proceed despite this warning, the previously attached rubric will be removed and any marking or feedback previously provided will be lost.
