Text-matching software compares submitted documents against an archive of digital documents, scholastic and news databases, articles and previously submitted papers. A report is generated where all matched text is highlighted and linked to an online source, giving you the opportunity to review your writing and referencing before final assignment submission.
Flinders University provides text-matching software for use by staff & students. Except where an exemption has been granted for special circumstances, all text-based student assignments will be subject to text-matching.
As of the first semester 2016, text-matching will be integrated into the FLO assignment tool. A draft submission box will also be available prior to submitting the final version of your assignment.
