Unplag (https://unplag.com), an online plagiarism detection tool allowing to check for similarities variously and receive interactive search reports, has recently become accessible for numerous users of Schoology, an innovative LMS available for K-12, higher education, and other corporate users.
The Unplag application is a good fit for all instructors willing to get student paper submissions scanned for originality and receive comprehensive check reports prior to grading them. Once installed by the educational institution administrator, educators can create assignments which will be then checked with Unplag.
For each new assignment, educators can choose individual settings. It’s possible to:
- auto-exclude citations and references from the search,
- choose one out of three checking types (against online sources, all the files stored in the educational institution account (Library), or the Doc vs Internet & Library check),
- set a number of draft checks students can run before submitting their papers,
- adjust check sensitivity settings by indicating percentage of text matches to be omitted from search results.
Furthermore, the Schoology users can also check out a recently rolled out commenting feature, which will help educators stay in touch with their students.
“We keep on working on the functionality enhancement to ensure better student engagement and more personalized learning”, said Anastasia Parokha, CEO at Unplag. “Thus, the commenting feature is already supported in LMSs Unplag is integrated with including Schoology too.”
By giving feedback to students through the Unplag commenting system, students can get individual advice on stylistics, punctuation, grammar, academic writing style and other tweaks.
All the functionality updates the Unplag software development team launches can be immediately accessed by all users for no extra charge.
Unplag (https://unplag.com) is an online plagiarism detection tool designed to ensure better interaction of educators and students and help students hone their writing skills. Launched in 2014, the Unplag functionality is constantly upgraded to provide a better user experience.
