Hello amazing community
Our tutors have access to Canvas with limited access.
The only permissions they have are;
- Course Content - view
- Courses - view list
Unfortunately they can view students' Turnitin submissions and indiscretion and plagiarism are becoming a concern.
Does anyone know of a way to block access to the Turnitin submissions?
HUGE THANKS in advance.

Did your Canvas admins set up a custom role at the Canvas account level called "Tutors"? It almost sounds like they did. Further, if this is true, I wonder if they set up the "Tutors" custom role based off of the "Teacher" role type? In general, I don't think that you can set permissions for Turnitin within Canvas...as Canvas is a third-party external LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability) application that integrates with Canvas. However, I also wonder if your Canvas admins created a new "Tutors" role based on the "Student" role type instead and then configured the same permissions if things would be any different. I don't have the ability to test this myself...so that's just an idea I immediately thought of that you might want to try in your own environment. Assuming you're not a Canvas admin, you might want to have a conversation with those folks at your school to see if this helps at all.
