Enable Plagiarism Detection in Canvas

Unicheck is a cloud-based service that identifies plagiarism and similar submissions by comparing  student submitted work against an ever-increasing database of sources. 

Unicheck replaces VeriCite for plagiarism detection, and is very similar in appearance within the Canvas SpeedGrader, as well as reporting and options.

If you have used VeriCite in the past with Assignments in Canvas, it is important to know that it has been disabled. Interested in using plagiarism detection? Action is needed to enable Unicheck. Read more…

QUICK TIP: Assignment Muting

Do you use assignments in Canvas?  Mute iconStudents are normally notified of new assignment grades and comments immediately, which means one student gets their grade first, and another gets their grade last, sometimes with many days in between.  By “muting” and assignment, instructors can delay these student notifications until all submissions have been graded.

To deliver grades back to all students at the same time, mute an assignment while grading and commenting, then unmute it after grading is complete.

See the Canvas Guides:

How do I mute or unmute an assignment from the Gradebook?

How do I mute or unmute an assignment from SpeedGrader?
