I submitted a paper to turnitin within my canvas class site but am unable to take it out again to fix the mistakes. Can it be taken out or do I just fix it and then resubmit it?
Depending on the settings in Turnitin, yes, you will need to resubmit. Teachers have the ability to delete a submission in Turnitin, however, the paper is still saved in their systems, so it will compare it with your re-submitted paper. This is fine as your teacher can excluded previous submitted papers so it will not count against you.
When working with external tools in Canvas, we must sometimes play by their rules, so let us know if you have further questions regarding this as behaviors with the tool can be a bit different.
