To create and test the integration, please follow the steps below.
Please refer to Administrator’s Guide for more details and descriptions of all the settings.
1. Create the Integration
Integration procedure comprises two parts:
Part 1: Creating integration in Unicheck Admin Account (at corp.unicheck.com).
Part 2: Adding Unicheck app in Canvas.
Part 1: Creating Integration in Unicheck Admin Account
Go to corp.unicheck.com and log in using the details of your Unicheck Admin account. Then go to the Integration section and click Create LMS Integration.
Follow the steps below to create the integration:
STEP 1: Click Connect Unicheck under the Canvas Similarity Detection Integration icon, then choose a name for the integration (e.g., “Canvas Similarity Detection”), and click Next.
STEP 2: Copy and save Register URL. You will need it while adding Unicheck app in Canvas LMS.
Click Ok, I’m Done! and then Next.
STEP 3: On the global settings page, click Skip for now.
STEP 4: On the global instructor settings page, click Skip for now to finish the integration.
Part 2: Adding Unicheck App in Canvas
STEP 1: Log in to Canvas LMS as administrator and navigate to the account, sub-account or course you want to enable Unicheck for. You may create multiple integrations if required.
Integrating Unicheck with your institution’s top-level account will enable Unicheck for all accounts, sub-accounts, and courses at your institution.
STEP 2: Go to Settings → Apps and click View App Configurations.
STEP 3: From Configuration Type drop-down list choose By LTI 2 Registration URL.
Paste Register URL that was copied during STEP 2 of Creating Integration in Unicheck Admin Account and then click Launch Registration Tool.
Note: You may also find Register URL of your integration by visiting the Integrations section at corp.unicheck.com.
Once everything is set up correctly, you will see a dialogue window confirming that Unicheck is ready to be enabled in Canvas. Click Enable to finish the integration process.
2. Test the Integration
STEP 1: Create a new assignment in Canvas LMS.
In Canvas assignment settings, select Online from Submission Type drop-down list, then tick File Uploads or Text Entry.
STEP 2: Select the Unicheck option from the Plagiarism Review drop-down list.
STEP 3: Click Save & Publish at the bottom of the page.
STEP 4: Wait several minutes and make a test submission within the newly created assignment. To make a submission, go to Settings → Student View or log in as a Student.
If you make a submission right away, Canvas Plagiarism Framework might not launch an automatic plagiarism check for the submitted file. To launch the check manually, open SpeedGrader and click Resubmit to Unicheck next to the file name.
STEP 5: Exit Student View or log in as Administrator / Instructor and go to SpeedGrader.
Unicheck report is generated within a few minutes after a student submits a document within a Canvas assignment. When you open the document in SpeedGrader, you will see a colored similarity score indicator next to a file name, which means that the Unicheck report is ready. Click on the similarity score indicator to view the online report.
Please refer to Unicheck Report Guide for details on design and functionality of the Unicheck report.
