Can anyone tell me, if you are using the Canvas Plagiarism Framework, do teachers and students still need Turnitin accounts?
If anyone is interested, the answer is, if you use the Canvas Plagiarism Framework, you do not need to create Turnitin accounts for either students or teachers. According to Turnitin Support, "pseudo-accounts" are created in Turnitin once the teacher or student goes to use the feature in Canvas (create or submit an assignment).
I would think that if a teacher still wants outside access to Turnitin, especially if they are using GradeMark or PeerMark, then they might still want a Turnitin account. But the idea with the Canvas Plagiarism Framework, in which these Turnitin tools are not available, is that use you Canvas for grading and feedback.
I'm wondering if instructors have the ability to grade in the framework the same way they could in the Feedback Studio. I'm specifically attempting to use the grading and quick marking tools while the similarity report is up. I like the layered, simultaneous visibility. Is this possible?
According to this chart, Speedgrader is the recommended feedback method with the Plagiarism Framework integration. Notice that it does say that the Turnitin online grading tools are not available (but are available with the External Tool integration).

However, it does look as though you can use the Feedback Studio. If you are in Speedgrader, you will see a percentage button under "Submitted Files." (It's hard to see in this picture but it's in green and says 3%).
If you click on that button, it will take you to the Feedback Studio where you are able to click on the available options.
I have never done this and I don't think any of our teachers are doing it either, but it does seem to be an option.
Hope this answers your question.
Thank you, Nancy. Unfortunately, when I click the similarity report icon in Canvas, it takes me to TurnItIn's document viewer rather than the Feedback Studio. My admins must have it blocked for some reason. Alas, I will continue to use speedgrader and just click back and forth and have students do the same... Thanks again. I appreciate it!
Okay, this set me thinking so I had another look at the documentation to see where this feature might be turned off. Here is the answer:

I did this and now, when I click on the "percentage button," I get a screen that says "Turnitin" on the left instead of "Feedback Studio." And there are less options available, on the right. According to the documentation, this is the way that it is supposed to be, with Speedgrader being the main way that you do the grading. I don't know what might happen if you attempted to do it in Feedback Studio with this type of integration, but I imagine they have a good reason for telling you to turn off the option. So mine is now off as well!
Yes, I suppose you're correct. Thank you for your help, Nancy. I appreciate you finding out exactly what I'm talking about and providing your input. It is refreshing!
