Key Facts About Unplag
Unplag is a smart app that checks student submissions for originality and spots text similarities. The app compares papers with relevant websites, open access articles or journals, newly and previously submitted peer assignments. After each check is completed, teachers and students receive detailed reports with similarity and originality statistics and links to matching sources.
Unplag highlights potential plagiarism and allows skipping sources with minor percentage of similarity from plagiarism report.
The app is a good fit for teaching students how to stick to citation rules (in APA, MLA, Chicago, Turabian or Harvard). Teachers can exclude correctly formatted citations in one click and originality and similarity scores will be updated at once.
To keep students notified of their successes, teachers can make use of the Unplag commenting feature. The annotations become immediately accessible to students once they are posted by teachers.
Using Unplag in LMS
The Unplag app is available for all teachers and students at Palliser Regional Schools as an external tool in LMS. So, teachers can create assignments and get student submissions checked right away.
Setting up individual accounts at unplag.com is not necessary. Should teachers need to use the Unplag standalone version, please email to Alison Hancox, principal at Palliser Beyond Borders online and outreach program, at email@example.com.
