Create the assignment.

Create the assignment as normal. You may allow in-line submissions, file attachments, or both for student submissions, depending on your preference.

Select VeriCite Plagiarism Service.

Select VeriCite Plagiarism Service.

If VeriCite is installed on your instance of Sakai, you will see a VeriCite Plagiarism Service option in the assignment settings, just below the Honor Pledge.

Check the box next to VeriCite Plagiarism Service to enable VeriCite for this assignment.

Optionally, if you use the service, you may also check the box to Allow students to view report.

Check the box next to Exclude quoted materials from Similarity Index for all papers in this assignment to make it the default setting for all reports for this assignment. It is recommended that you set this as the default in order to lower the number of false positives. You will still be able to toggle between excluding and including quotes inside each individual report.

Click Post to save your settings and make the assignment available to students.

Assignments using VeriCite will be indicated with a red ribbon icon.
