Moodle Help & Support (Staff)
This refers to Moodle 4.1 from December 2023 onwards.
NOTE: Do not edit, change, detach, disconnect, attach or re-connect a rubric once marking has started. This risks loss of rubric comments.
How to: Add a previously created Turnitin rubric assessment
Once a rubric has been created by you or a colleague you'll need to attach it to an assignment via any of the submissions. This then applies to all other submissions in that dropbox. There is one rubric per assignment. Attempting to add another rubric to an Assignment Dropbox will delete the previous rubric and any feedback or marks created using it, so once a rubric is attached it should be used through marking.
You can add the rubric when setting up the dropbox or before marking.
Editing or viewing an existing Turnitin rubric or creating a new one
- In your module, click on the Turnitin assignment you want to edit or add the rubric.
- Go into the Submissions inbox and click on the 'Launch Rubric Manager' icon
- In the rubric screen, click on the 'Menu' button with three lines in the top left-hand corner to view available rubrics and rubric options.
- In the drop-down list provided, look at the list of available rubrics at the bottom. Click on the rubric you would like to use.
Alternatively, you can access it when the assignment is set up (or afterwards). In this instance you would need to turn on 'Edit mode' using the toggle switch to the top right of the page.
Then go to the Turnitin assignment you wish to add the rubric to and click 'Edit'
In the Settings of the Turnitin assignment, scroll down to GradeMark Options and click on 'Launch Rubric Manager'.
A default rubric may show up - but it is not yet attached.
Note: When you have finished, remember to click on the 'Edit mode' toggle switch to turn editing off on your Moodle page.
