Integrated similarity checking is nearly here!

Filed under: FASER, MEFE, Projects — Tags: , , — Alex ONeill @ 9:56 am

We are in the final stages of testing the FASer integration with our chosen similarity / plagiarism checker, Ephorus. It’s looking good and will make life much easier when organising submissions to be checked. All that will be required is to set up similarity checking on the Edit Assignment page and the final document submitted by each student will be automatically checked. You can then see the results and the reports directly in the FASer system – no more downloading and uploading of files requred!

Find out more about Ephorus here: https://www.ephorus.com. More detailed instructions will be released once we launch the changes.

Also note, we are not planning on retiring TurnItIn at this time so it will still be available for manual checking if required.
