Introducing SimCheck: New Plagiarism Detection Software

New for E-Term!

SimCheck is a new plagiarism detection software integrated into Canvas that checks your students written work against our institutional repository, the web, library databases and journals, textbook publishers, homework help sites, and books.

SimCheck has been integrated into Canvas Assignments as an optional tool for instructors. It serves as a replacement for the previous tool, VeriCite.

Students may also check their own papers for plagiarism in a separate course site set up by the Academic Technology Center and the Gordon Library. These “draft” papers are not stored in the institutional repository.

Please use the links below to learn how to use SimCheck. If you have any questions feel free to reach out to and we’d be happy to set up a one-on-one session to help you get set up!
