What is TurnItIn SimCheck?

Turnitin SimCheck is UM-Dearborn's plagiarism detection service.  Turnitin SimCheck is an improved version of the VeriCite platform used at UM-Dearborn since 2017, which Turnitin acquired in 2018.  Turnitin SimCheck compares student submissions to resources on the public Internet, to previous submissions of student papers, and to some licensed resources and generates a report of similar content which may be viewed by the instructor of record and the student (at the instructor's discretion).  Turnitin SimCheck is integrated into Canvas, streamlining the submission and plagiarism detection process for students and faculty.
