Common Core Grading Rubrics Now Available in Turnitin

Turnitin has released six writing rubrics that are aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). These new rubrics are available now in the Rubric Library if you are affiliated with a middle school, high school, or community college account in the United States. If you are not affiliated with these eligible schools, you can download the Common Core Rubric Pack (.zip) and import the .RBC files into your Rubric Library.

These CCSS-aligned writing rubrics were developed for Turnitin by the English Professional Learning Council for grades 9-10 and 11-12 for Informative, Argumentative, and Narrative text types.

"The Common Core rubrics allow instructors at all levels to promote more success in student writing,” said Dawn Lewis, instructor at Aliso Niguel High School. "The rubrics help narrow the expectations and language gap, especially for assessment, between secondary education and higher education.”
