      install a couple of plagiarism plugins - Urkund and turnitin are good examples. - you don't need to configure these for testing.

      https://github.com/danmarsden/moodle-plagiarism_urkund

      Make sure the advanced feature to enable plagiarism plugins is enabled.

      after install - try using the new delete option in admin > plugins > plagiarism > manage plagiarism plugins

      • confirm that the custom plagiarism_plugin tables have been removed.

      important to note that this will only delete the tables created by the plugins - the plugins both use the config_plugins table to store settings information and this information will currently stay in the db - we need to add uninstall.php to the plugins to remove this data as well (will do this at some point.)

      All (most?) other plugin types have a 'manage' screen that allows them to be deleted. Plagiarism plugins do not for some reason.
