What is Unicheck?

Modified on Tue, 6 Jun, 2023 at 1:18 PM

Unicheck is a plagiarism checker. It verifies the originality of submitted texts or documents and delivers detailed similarity reports to instructors and students.
The Unicheck system is embedded in the Moodle platform.  It ensures that all work is authentic and adheres to our academic expectations of originality, is correctly referenced, and deemed as clinically rich work. 

You may be asked to accept the Unicheck Turns & Conditions so that you are able to use Unicheck throughout your course. 

We have a lot of information for students in our Study Skills section, Day 5 - Academic Best Practice, on Moodle. This has guidance and videos to help with plagiarism detectors and also provides help with how to reference your work.

Moodle Forum

When students post replies within a Forum activity, Unicheck Reports are automatically generated for the posted text and files. Click Report to view the online Unicheck Report. For further information regarding the Unicheck Report, please see our Knowledge Base Article

Are Citations Included in Similarity Score?
If your instructor decides to exclude quotes and/or references, Unicheck will highlight properly formatted in-text citations and/or references in blue and purple respectively (Harvard) and exclude them from the Similarity Score.

Please Note: There isn't a set percentage that is acceptable. The checker may sometimes recognise your referencing as copied and pasted, however, if the referencing is done correctly you will not be marked down for it.
