Google Classroom Integrated Similarity Detector
With the beginning of a school year, teachers and students alike dive into an educational process. Teachers come up with better ways to teach their classes with edtech by their side.
This time, edtech enhances original writing skills of students through avenues such as Google Classroom LMS. PlagiarismCheck.org has developed an effective integration with Google Classroom that helps both educators and students check their works for similarity. Now you have a tool at hand that actually helps students write better. How is that so:
An integration with Google Classroom
Organize your Google Classroom account the way you are used to. PlagiarismCheck.org checks papers submitted as Google Docs or as attachments for your Assignment or Question task.
In PlagiarismCheck.org account teachers see all classes and tasks they have created. Under each task all students’ submissions will be stored. Select the submissions you want to check, and the reports will be automatically generated.
In PlagiarismCheck.org account students see all classes and tasks they have joined. Under each class and task, student can access only personal submissions and check them for similarity.
Yes, give your students a second chance. While allowing a student to resubmit his/her work, you give them a chance to improve their writing. Resubmitted works will not be flagged as plagiarised.
Both students and teachers should easily understand what information the report presents. PlagiarismCheck.org generates reports that provides explicit information on a similarity analysis.
- excludes quotes and references (they are presented in different sections);
- provides direct links to all sources (user can access the source at any moment);
- highlights all detected similarities.
Leaving the final decision on how to act based on the information in a similarity report up to a teacher.
Smart AI algorithm:
Unlike manual search, automated detection does not pick favourites. Not only the same efficiency is applied to all checked papers, it also saves teachers’ time.
Directly copied and pasted information is quite easy to find even with the manual search. The algorithm should also provide reliable results when it comes to more tricky forms of plagiarism such as:
- rearrangements in word order;
- substitution of words with synonyms;
- changes from active to passive voice and vice versa.
PlagiarismCheck.org statistics show that ability to detect paraphrased text doubles the effectiveness of a similarity algorithm. Here is a detailed review of paraphrase versus plagiarism difference.
