Turnitin is an OAKS (D2L/Brightspace) add-on that allows for easier, online grading within OAKS.  It also offers a rubric tool for even easier grading and to help the students understand their grade.  The rubric allows the instructor to choose which “judging” critera the student has most closely met and the rubric will then convert that into a score that can them be automatically moved to the “grade” area for the assignment.

While OAKS does have a build-in rubric tool, it unfortunately doesn’t interface with Turnitin graded assignments.  So if you like using Turnitin to grade and you like using rubrics, the Turnitin Rubric Tool is for you.
