Turnitin SimCheck is a plagiarism detection service employed by the UO that identifies potentially plagiarized or improperly cited text. The service automatically checks submitted work against an index of online sources. It can be accessed through your Canvas course site if your instructor has activated it for particular assignments.
Note: Vericite, the originality checker tool in Canvas, has been sunset as of August, 2020 and is being replaced by Turnitin’s SimCheck tool. If you are a student and having difficulties using Turnitin, please contact your instructor.
