How do I create an assignment in Online@UT (Canvas) that uses Unicheck?

Unicheck is the University of Tennessee, Knoxville's text-matching software, which is intended to be a deterrent against plagiarism as well as a tool that students can use to learn how to better use citations and paraphrasing in their papers. In both cases, Unicheck can help students to submit better, more original work. Unicheck can be accessed through Online@UT (Canvas).

Create a Canvas Assignment using Unicheck:

  • In Course Navigation, click the Assignments link.
