Help students keep their ideas authentic
Analyze for originality right within your grading interface, using the power of Search.
Scan for missing citations quickly and easily with originality reports
With so much of the world’s information readily accessible, educators face a big challenge in helping students keep their work authentic. Originality reports, available in Classroom and Assignments, can help students improve their writing by flagging needed citations, while also providing you with a fast and easy way to verify academic integrity.
Cross reference the web in one search
Using the power of Search, originality reports compare student work against hundreds of billions of web pages and tens of millions of books. The reports highlight missing citations, ineffective paraphrasing, or unintended plagiarism due to high similarity and link to the external source.
Students can run originality reports up to three times before submitting, allowing them to identify and address citation errors, and saving you time on grading. You get your own report with each submission so you can provide additional guidance if needed.
Your content belongs to you and your students
Student work that has been scanned with the tool is not retained or owned by Google. We search for what’s publicly available on the web. In the future, we plan to add an option for schools to have a private repository of student submissions – that they own – so instructors can see peer-to-peer matches.
