Can Unicheck Be a New Alternative to Turnitin?

A recent survey conducted by the Josephson Institute Center for Youth Ethics, reports that half of the learners are cheating regularly, while others are not aware they plagiarize at all.

Dealing with cheating from the disciplinary perspective is a practice that in many educational institutions has been supported by plagiarism detection software, ever since they first appeared.

The algorithm of such software allowed searching for the matching textual pieces of information, comparing the material to the web resources, open access libraries or private repositories.

While educational communities across the world laid the high hopes on such software like Turnitin, it appeared that many schools and districts couldn’t afford it, the others started to look for more agile checker that would offer the quicker and smarter service.  

Can such technology as Unicheck become a robust alternative to Turnitin? Let’s have a look if teachers can trust Unicheck and if migration to it is worthwhile trying?
