Postgraduate scale & Turnitin rubrics

Print this post
Turnitin works from a 1-100 percentage scale and does not have the facility to introduce other scales. This is not a problem for undergraduate assessment which is marked as a percentage, but postgraduate assessment at the University is marked using the ‘Postgraduate Scale’.

You have two options for dealing with this.

Create a rubric that returns a value between 1 to 16.
Create a rubric which marks from 1-100. Use Moodle Grade Settings to convert this to the PG letter.

Consult the ‘Creating a rubric’ section in this video. Creating a Turnitin Assignment and the basics of marking student papers (VIDEO)

Please feel free to consult with your campus learning technologist if you have a query about how to set up your assignments.
