Competing to Catch Plagiarizers





As technology makes it easier for students to cheat on exams or plagiarize papers, there has been no shortage of technology meant to deter and catch students who use cell phones, iPods and Google for a little extra help.

Turnitin and SafeAssignment are the two dominant technologies for comparing students’ submissions to databases of millions of student papers, articles and Web sites.
