Unfortunately plagiarism is a very serious problem in computer science courses. Mimir Classroom's configurable plagiarism detection system acts as a strong deterrent for those tempted to cheat and catches those that do anyway.
Analyzes each student’s submission against the rest of the class to identify cases of students sharing work.
When a programming project has been used before we will automatically check each student’s submission against all previous submissions, including previous semesters.
Checks student submissions for similarities from websites like Stack Overflow and RosettaCode.
Using complex structural, user patterns, and post compilation analysis, Mimir can catch many of the tricks employed by students to get away with cheating.
The Mimir Plagiarism Algorithm is constantly learning. It learns from feedback and quickly adapts to new cheating methods and different project types.
