How to Create a Rubric for Turnitin Assignment – New

Turnitin allows you to create rubrics and share them across courses and with other instructors. There are three rubric types:  

  • Standard rubric – allows you to enter scale values and criteria percentages. The maximum value for the Standard rubric will be the same as the highest scale value entered
  • Custom rubric – allows you to enter any value directly into the rubric cells. The maximum value for the Custom rubric will be the sum of the highest value entered in each of the criteria rows
