Exporting Turnitin Rubrics

This guide explains how to export a rubric or grading form from Turnitin.  You may wish to do this if you have a colleague who wishes to re-use your rubric or edit it for their own use.  In order to do this, you must first export a rubric (.rbc) file which you send to your colleague.  They will then be able to import the rubric file into their own Blackboard-Turnitin account.

Note that when a rubric is exported and then imported, the imported rubric is treated as a completely new rubric and has no connection to your original rubric.  As a reminder, rubrics and grading forms are attached to your user account rather than to a specific course.
