When our students turn in their school papers teachers automatically see if the students have plagiarized. This is done in our LMS. (Learning management system it’s learning) Plagiarism is a serious offense and most high schools spend time teaching their students how to write papers. Colleges and universities assume their students know it is a crime to assume ownership work done by others. It is therefore a good strategy to show the students how to use citations and name sources.
Paper Rater is a free service designed to help high school and college students improve their writing. It is easy to use and the students do not have to register or sign up for an account. They just paste the paper directly into Paper Rater They are told if their paper has elements of plagiarism, grammar mistakes, how many words, sentence structure, spelling mistakes and percentage of sophisticated vocabulary. (very useful).
