We are happy and proud to be able to say that URKUND received the most points in HTW Berlin’s prestigious test of anti-plagiarism systems in late 2013. This test is done every second year.
In the test, URKUND and twenty other systems were put through their paces. URKUND came out a clear winner in the test. Read the test here.
“We’ve definitely noticed an increasing incidence of plagiarism since URKUND was introduced, and previously there was of course a high level of undetected incidence. It was far too time consuming for the teaching staff to carry out their own plagiarism checks. The automation has led to a bigger haul of perpetrators,” says Joshua Kragh Bruhn, Information specialist at CBS.
“The preventive objective of plagiarism detection is highly significant. When the students become aware of URKUND they are less inclined to seek shortcuts. Trying to cheat the system is ultimately more resource intensive than doing a good job from the start,” says Arshad Hussanee, Learn Online Manager på University of Canberra.
