How to download submissions from Turnitin with rubric marks included - Staff Guide

There are two ways to download Turnitin submissions with rubric marks included:

  • The first way is much quicker for individual submissions. This is done from the document viewer (i.e. in Feedback Studio).
  • The second way is from the assignment inbox and is best for bulk downloading submissions.

Download an individual submission

1.  From the Turnitin assignment link open the assignment inbox.

a) click on the grade of the student.

b) This will bring up the document viewer in Turnitin Feedback Studio where the marking has been done.

c)  Select the download arrow icon from the tool menu on the right.

It may take a short while for the download to happen, and you should see a message saying that the download is being prepared towards the top of your screen.

The downloaded PDF will contain the overall assignment grade, and the marked rubric items will be at the bottom of the report that is downloaded.

All the possible rubric items will be displayed, the ones that are displayed in bold type are the ones that have been applied.
