Originality, Plagiarism and SimCheck

The similarity tool, SimCheck by TurnItIn, offers instructors the ability to enhance student knowledge of plagiarism and prevent violations of academic integrity. You can use SimCheck with Canvas Assignments.
Papers submitted through SimCheck will be compared to internet sources and previous papers turned in at Moraine. It can be a tool to educate students on originality and proper citing of courses. It can also catch students when they turn in assignments previously submitted to courses at Moraine Valley.

It is a good idea to offer an earlier low stakes or draft assignment using SimCheck. It will provide an opportunity to educate your students on the importance of proper citing sources and originality before using for a high stakes assignments.
