Scenario:


A student hands in their assignment twice under 2 different email or user accounts, this can result in a submission being reported against the previous version of itself. This has lead to a high similarity report.

Solution:

Sometimes a MTU student might be in need of re-uploading or handing in their assignment again. If a participant hands in their assignment twice under 2 different email or user accounts,, this can result in a submission being reported against the previous version of itself. In many cases this can lead to high similarity reports, where it has flagged almost entire documents as being 100% similar to another report. 

In cases such as these, however, Ouriginal is able to identify such a situation as a "Conflict Copy".

With this option from the main page in the Ouriginal Report, you can turn off the conflicting copy to omit the previous submission.

It is also possible to adjust the sources which the similarity report draws upon.
