Plagium is a handy way of tracking text that students have supplied that you may think have originated elsewhere. Plagium also checks URLs.

All you need to do is paste the text in question into the Plagium box and then scroll down the page to see the books or websites where the information may have been plagiarised from.

For URLs, click on the ‘check URL’ link at the top left hand side of the Plagium website.

As plagiarism is an issue for schools, this may be a useful tool that is quick and easy to use.
