Run an originality report on your work

This article is for students.

If your instructor turns on originality reports for an assignment, you can use the reports to identify uncited content and unintentional plagiarism before you turn in your work. The reports compare your Google Docs file against webpages and books on the internet.

Your instructor can’t see the reports that you run. After you turn in your work, Assignments automatically runs a report that only your instructor can see. If you unsubmit and resubmit a file, Assignments runs another originality report for the instructor.

Originality reports are only available for G Suite for Education accounts set to English, Indonesian, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish, and Swedish.
