If a similarity check program is chosen, the results can be found in the courses.
How to use the similarity check
After enabling a similarity check program in a hand-in assignment, every text file that a student hands in will directly be checked for similarities with material on the internet, published material and student material (also material already handed in by other students for this assignment). After the students uploaded their material, in the tab Results, a similarity percentage will be shown as seen in the image below. This percentage shows how much of the handed in material has similarities with other material. In the image below, the student 2226245 has handed in the same work as student 5447744, but because one student handed his work in earlier he has a similarity of 0.0% and the other of 100.0%.
The sources of the similarities of the handed-in material of the students can be found in two locations:
- During reviewing, the tab Similarity can be found in the right part of the screen. By clicking this tab, the similarity percentage will be shown and by clicking Extended analysis the sources of the similarities can be found. This link will go to the site of either URKUND or Turnitin.
- If a specific student needs to be shown, the student number of this student can be clicked in the Results window. This will lead to the window as seen in the image below. Here also the link Extended analysis is shown and will go to either the URKUND or Turnitin website.
