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 can be accessed from within the Canvas SpeedGrader when viewing a student’s submission, as well as the report of sources and other options.

Unicheck within Speedgrader

Once you have enabled Unicheck within an Assignment, and students have submitted, you will see two reference points to the Unicheck similarity report.

One of these will be a percentage which indicates the level of the submission that is suspect.

Clicking on either icon will launch the Unicheck Report and corresponding links to suspected sources.

 

Interested in using plagiarism detection? Action is needed to enable Unicheck.
