Go to https://unicheck.com/login/education and log in to your Unicheck Instructor account.
Note: If your institution does not use Unicheck, you can click Personal and create an account for yourself.
The Library contains similarity reports and documents uploaded by yourself and your students or shared with you by administrator and other instructors.
- Upload / create files and folders
Upload files to be checked for similarity, create new folders or text files.
- Check documents for similarity
Choose how you want to check your files. The available options are: vs Internet, vs Library, vs Internet + Library, and vs Database (if your local FTP server is connected).
Share folders with students
First, you should invite your students to the Unicheck dashboard (see Student Accounts).
The general workflow is as follows:
1. Instructor creates an assignment folder and shares it with students.
2. Students submit their papers to the assignment folder, which becomes visible in their Libraries.
3. Instructor checks student submissions for similarity.
Note: Files submitted to the assignment folder become immediately visible to you. However, students can delete those files you have not yet checked for similarity.
- Access reports and student papers
View the content of similarity reports and download papers submitted by students.
- Use advanced search
Search your entire Library by file name, file owner, file ID, or user ID. Sort files and folders by date.
- Profile Details
Review or change your profile name, password, and interface language.
- System Settings
- Allow Students to Use Precheck.
If enabled by administrator, you can provide students with a limited number of attempts to check their documents for similarity prior to making a final submission. When logged in at https://unicheck.com/login/education, students will see a Draft folder inside each assignment folder you share with them. They can add files to the Draft folder and run a similarity check on their own. Prechecked files and their similarity reports will not be visible to you.
- Exclude Quotes and References
If enabled, Unicheck will highlight properly formatted quotes and references (APA, MLA, Chicago/Turabian, Harvard). Detected quotes and references will not be checked for plagiarism. This setting only applies to similarity reports generated by yourself from the Unicheck dashboard.
- Exclude Sources
This filter can be adjusted to automatically exclude matched sources based on set parameters: word count (e.g., do not detect sources with matches shorter than 10 words) and/or similarity percentage (e.g., do not detect sources with similarity scores lower than 3%). The minimum value for “Words” is “8” . These filters only apply to similarity reports generated by yourself from the Unicheck dashboard.
Here you can create and manage student accounts, i.e. provide students with access to the Unicheck dashboard. Students upload submissions to folders shared with them by instructors but they cannot check files for similarity except for the Student Precheck mode. You can provide students with Precheck attempts (see “Allow Students to Use Precheck” in Account Settings).
Review statistics for your Unicheck account: number of documents checked, average similarity rate dynamics and distribution, share of original documents, and more.
