Submitty logo



Submitty has its own system for plagiarism detection, similar in function to Stanford’s MOSS system that was used in the past. Currently, instructors must run the plagiarism tool manually, but in the future this process will be automated.

Running Plagiarism - Using Default Options

To run plagiarism detection with the default configuration, run

/usr/local/submitty/SubmittyAnalysisTools/plagiarism --semester <SEMESTER> --course <COURSE> --assignment <ASSIGNMENT> --language <LANGUAGE> submissions/<ASSIGNMENT>

from within the directory for the course (for example, if you had a Fall 2017 course named test_course, this directory would be /var/local/submitty/courses/f17/test_course).
