QUICK TIP: Exporting Rubric Files (.rbc) from Turnitin

Please note: This kind of file cannot be opened on your PC and can only be accessed once uploaded to Turnitin. In addition, the file name you have used to save the file on your PC will not be the name of the rubric on Turnitin, this will default to whichever name the original creator used when setting up the rubric before they sent it to you.

  2. Open the Turnitin submission and click the cog icon to the top right to edit the submission point
