VeriCite is the plagiarism detection service used in Canvas at NCTC to check submitted assignments for original content. The paper will be checked against existing material from several online sources. VeriCite will return a "percentage of plagiarism" based on how closely your content matches the existing content.
VeriCite can consume student in-line submissions and submission files in most file formats (e.g. pptx, html, docx, pdf, txt, rtf, ppt, doc, odf, etc.)
Note: VeriCite Does Not Work with Mac Pages documents. The documents will need to be converted to a Microsoft Word format or PDF format.
