Experience with PlagiarismCheck
– challenge: what challenges did you expect to solve with plagiarism detection software? With Plagiarismcheck, we were seeking a tool to help students realize when they were plagiarizing others’ works by accident, as well as a tool that would help teachers hold students accountable when plagiarism was intentional.
– why did you choose us: what were the key factors in selecting the vendor? After using trial versions of several vendors, we chose Plagiarismcheck because of the integration with Google docs, the ease-of-use, the reliability, and the cost.
– did PlagiarismCheck help you achieve your goal? Yes, for sure. I have integrated Plagiarismcheck into my seventh, eighth, and ninth-grade English classes. The students have become comfortable using the tool, and it has helped them catch places in their writing where they forgot to cite their sources. I have also used it to as proof in a situation where a student turned in work that was not his own. We will be ready to expand the use of the program to other grade levels next fall.
