Viewing the rubric for a Turnitin assignment

If your tutor is using Turnitin to grade your work, they may have setup a rubric and associated it with your Turnitin link.  This guide explains how to see the rubric so that you are aware of the criteria against which your submission will be graded.  Note that not all Turnitin links will have a rubric attached.  If in doubt, please contact your course tutor.
