How do I add a VeriCite assignment?
In your Canvas site, go to Assignments.
Click the +Assignments button.
Enter your assignment information.
Select External Tool as the Submission Type.
Set the assignment availability (optional), and click Save.
Note: If you are ready to publish the assignment for students in the class, you may select the Save & Publish button instead.
The assignment will display.
(Optional) Configure additional assignment options.
If you would like to configure additional assignment options. Select the Assignments tab in VeriCite, then click on Manage Assignments.
Select the assignment you want to edit.
Click on the row for the assignment you would like to edit. You may also click on the gear icon to access settings for a given assignment, then click Edit.
Make your settings selections and save.
In the Report Options section, you may select the default settings for this assignment. By default, these options are all enabled.
If you would like to turn off the Exclude Quotes option for this individual report, remove the check mark next to that option. Turning off this option will include all text in the matching index, regardless of whether or not students have quoted the text correctly.
Note: The References or Bibliography section of a paper is always excluded from the matching, even if quotes are not excluded.
If you would like to turn off the Exclude Self Plagiarism option for this individual report, remove the check mark next to that option. The default setting is Yes in order to avoid false positives. Excluding self plagiarism allows students to submit multiple copies (or drafts) of the same text within the same course without it being flagged as a match.
Note: Students submitting the same text in different courses will always be flagged as a student paper match.
If you DO NOT want student submissions for this assignment to be added to your private institutional repository, remove the check mark next to the Store in Index option.
