    Hi Sara, every admin is automatically enrolled as an instructor on a class when it is created.

    Hi John and team

    Firstly - thanks for the plugin.

    I have created a single activity course using this plugin. Our scenario is that we have Examiners who need to grade submissions, but we do not want them to be able to edit the assignment or course NOT see the list of tutors or students.

    I have created an Examiner role and inherited non-editing tutor permissions, however it seems that they can see both tabs for tutors and students and also edit details such as date, rubric etc - which we cannot permit.

    Am I doing something wrong? Any advice hugely appreciated.

    TIA - Dan

    Hi Dan, unfortunately, we use the grade capability to work out whether someone is an instructor or not. That is also what we use to denote visibility of the student and tutor tabs.

    Thanks for speedy reply. I'm assuming there is no way to remove this then? It seems a bit odd that an instructor can view the list of students whilst carry out blind marking. AND they can view a Log history which could potentially allow them to match up submission log to coursework submission.

    SELECT pathnamehash FROM mdl_files WHERE component = 'assignsubmission_file' AND itemid = '1505368' AND source IS NOT null ORDER BY id DESC
    lib.php private function update_grade($cm, $submission, $userid)
    public function clean_old_turnitin_submissions($cm, $userid, $itemid, $submissiontype, $identifier)

    both above functions include a query which under MySQL 5.7 run for more than 40 seconds each time. Both can be found as they include the term :
    "AND source IS NOT null".
    Explain output
    1 SIMPLE mdl_files ref mdl_file_comfilconite_ix mdl_file_comfilconite_ix 302 const 1063994 Using index condition; Using where; Using filesort

    Hello,
    My Turnitin worked normally on my moodle instance. However, today, whenever I create a new activity for Turnitin there is an error
    Turnitin Error
    Sorry, we could not process your request.
    The resource_link_id provided is already mapped to a different context_id. Please contact "..." to resolve.

    Those activity created before today still working normally. Could anyone tell me how to fix this?

    This sounds like an LTI issue, it sounds like you've used LTI through Moodle with your Turnitin account previously. This is a known issue so you'll need to create a new sub account, then everything should work fine.

    Hi, In a Moodle assignment with the Turnitin plagiarism plugin, the first plagiarism report you click on opens in a new tab. If you return to Moodle assignment and click a different plagiarism report, the tab remains on the first student and does not load the second report. Is there anyway the Turnitin report could update based on the report you click on in Moodle?
    This is the behaviour on: Moodle 3.7.3, Turnitin plagiarism plugin 3.1+ (2019062501), for Firefox 72.0.1 and Chrome 79.0.3945.117.
    Thanks!

    Hi there,

    My name is Frances and I'm a lecturer at the University of Zululand in South Africa. Some of my students are only able to access Moodle on their smart phones and tablets (they don't all have laptops). My colleagues and I have figured out how to connect our submission links on Moodle to classes in Turnitin. BUT, a new problem has cropped up: when students try to submit their assignments on Moodle, the Turnitin End User Licence pops up onto their screen in a way that prevents them from being able to see the box for them to click and agree and move on. This prevents them from submitting their assignments. Is there any way to get around this issue? Would downloading an App with a different browser work? Please help. I'm stumped. Thank you
