The Similarity Report

The Similarity Report is created as Feedback Studio checks the text of student papers against the text of papers in the repositories previously selected in the Optional settings of the assignment.

Where text matches are found the Similarity Report highlights the matches for comparision to the source document within the Document viewer.
