The availability of rubrics/forms is based on who is logged on, not what Blackboard course the TurnItIn is accessed from. One option to pass a rubric/form on to another staff member is to export it, email it to the staff member and they can import it into TurnItIn.

Another option, if the rubric was initially setup in a spreadsheet, would be to share the spreadsheet the rubric is based on (refer to the guides Create a Standard Rubric, Create a Custom Rubric and Create a Qualitative Rubric).

Use of rubrics by tutors

Your tutors will be able to use the rubric you select for marking. Note, if they edit the assignment the rubric you have attached will not be available in their rubric list.
