Unicheck Plagiarism Checker

Canvas and Unicheck logo

We have had to make a change to our Unicheck (Canvas Plagiarism Checker) plug-in tool. When you create an assignment and want to utilize Unicheck, you will now see the built-in option for selecting the Unicheck (Canvas Plagiarism Checker) integration within the assignment itself. You will also see the color-coded similarity flags in the Canvas Grades view. Please refer to our updated instructions for creating a Unicheck assignment.

For matched paper submissions, the Unicheck Similarity Report shows paper-related personal information. Matched papers are papers from the list of matched sources displayed on the Side Panel of the Unicheck Report (in the Library section under the MATCHES tab). These are the papers that were previously submitted by other students or directly uploaded to UTK’s Unicheck account.

  • Show Paper Title – This is a name of the file submitted by a user.
  • Show User Email – This is the email address of a user who submitted the file in Canvas.
  • Show User Name – This is a Name of a user who submitted the file in Canvas.
  • Show Paper Content – Allow view access to the full text of a matched paper.

If you have existing Unicheck assignments with student submissions, you will not be able to view detailed paper-related personal information.
