Text similarity reports via Urkund

Documents uploaded via Canvas and Wiseflow are automatically analysed for text similarity in Urkund.

Please note that all uploads to Urkund will be part of the sources from which the examination answer hand in will be checked against. Therefore, it is not a good idea to upload your handin directly to Urkund before the "real" upload in Wiseflow or Urkund is taking place.

This will "pollute" the database, and for the assessors it might seem as you have copied someone elses text.
