URKUND is an online text-matching tool made available to all University of Canberra students to assist with raising the quality and integrity of students’ assignments. URKUND checks text against the internet, archives and databases and reports any similarities – highlighting the similar text and identifying sources. The text-matching process is automated and it can take up to 48 hours for a report to be produced. This time factor needs to be considered when using URKUND to check assignments before submission for assessment.
URKUND can be accessed from the Academic Integrity Module (AIM) on all student moodles, and may be available as part of the assignment submission facility in some unit moodles (varies from subject to subject as this is a decision made by the subject convenor). This presentation focusses on using URKUND via AIM.
