Viewing Rubrics Attached to an Assignment


If your instructor used or plans to use a rubric to grade your assignment, the rubric will be attached to the assignment. This will allow you to view the list of marks associated with a specific criterion and will help you understand how your instructor reached or will reach your end grade.

Once your instructor has graded your paper, click the assigned grade, which appears alongside the edit icon. This will open the Turnitin Document Viewer in a new browser window.
