Plagiarism Detection


VeriCite is UM-Dearborn's plagiarism detection service, as of Summer 2017, replacing Turnitin.  VeriCite compares student submissions to resources on the public Internet, to previous submissions of student papers, and to some licensed resources \and generates a report of possible plagiarized content for the faculty to review.  VeriCite is integrated into Canvas, streamlining the submission and plagiarism detection process for students and faculty.

Using VeriCite in a Canvas course

Since VeriCite integrates natively with Canvas, it only takes a simple selection to enable plagiarism detection for an assignment.  The originality report will be available in SpeedGrader, generally within 10 minutes of submission.  VeriCite provides a full set of guides for using the service inside of Canvas.

Using VeriCite to check a single assignment submission

Since VeriCite is integrated directly into Canvas, UM-Dearborn has made a special Canvas site available for faculty to check a single paper for plagiarism.  Please see the join information document to access the Canvas site (available only to UM-Dearborn faculty)
