My students are teachers working on their Master's Degree. They have to turn all their work in to Turnitin. I have to download their work from Turnitin. A recent assignment required them to create a rubric for a performance task. They were given resources such a "Rubistar" which includes a rubric generator. This asks teachers questions about the assignment, and generates a rubric based on the questions. This is a very nice tool. I sincerely believe the intent of this website is that teachers can use the rubric that is generated, as is, making any small modification needed to fit their individual circumstances. Well my supervisors are saying that because the generated rubrics have much of the same wording, that the high percentage matches on Turnitin are unacceptable and we should tell students they are plagiarizing, and we must make them do the assignment over again, rewording the rubric completely. It is my opinion that this defeats the entire purpose of providing a tool such as a "rubric generator." I do believe that students should credit the website and tool in the paper they write which includes this as an appendix, but that including the wording generated by that tool within the rubric itself does not constitute plagiarizing! I'm curious about what other instructors out there think about this.
