Plagiarism detection software
The University of Toronto has a tool that assists in detecting similarities between works submitted by students, and previous work submitted at U of T or available elsewhere. Sections containing material found elsewhere will be flagged by the software, as well as the exact source of the material.
If instructors plan to use the plagiarism detection tool for any of their assignments, they must inform their students at the start of the course. For more information about the tool, please see the Centre for Teaching Support & Innovation’s website: https://teaching.utoronto.ca/resources/plagiarism-detection/
