Resources for Using Canvas with SimCheck

The UW has transitioned to SimCheck as its new plagiarism-detection tool. VeriCite is not available for new assignments, but you may still access VeriCite reports.

If you are using Canvas only to have students submit their work to SimCheck, these documents explain how to set up the assignment. One recommendation is to simplify the Canvas course navigation to make it easy for your students to find what they need. Instructions for doing so can be found further down in this document.
