How do I submit my paper to Unicheck to Check for Plagiarism?

Unicheck is the Seminary's plagiarism checker. Unicheck works by checking submitted essays against the internet and against other essays submitted at ATS. Unicheck returns a report showing how much of a given essay is potentially plagiarized. 

Some professors have Unicheck built into their Canvas courses so that papers are checked for plagiarism when they are turned in. However, many students wish to check their papers themselves before turning them in. This article will walk you through the steps of submitting your essay through Unicheck and interpreting the results. 

Step 1: Go to Canvas, and open the SC100: Student Canvas Tutorial Course (NOTE: Your Canvas Dashboard may not look the same as this, but if you look through your list of courses, you should be able to find this course. All ATS students are automatically enrolled in it when enrolling in Seminary courses.)



Step 2: Click on "Submit your Draft for Plagiarism Review Here."

Step 3: Click on "Submit Assignment." 

Step 4: Submit the essay you wish to have checked. Scroll to the bottom of the page. Start by clicking the "Choose File" button. This should open up a file window, so you can find your essay. Click on the essay you wish to submit, and choose Open. This will close the file window. Check the "This assignment submission is my own, original work" box. Then click Submit Assignment. 

Step 5: Wait about 20 minutes. 

Step 6: Still in SC100, go to the Grades page. 


Step 7: You should see something like this. Note the colored flag on the right. This indicates the level of potentially problematic content. Green means there is little to no suspected plagiarism. Yellow means there might be something that needs a closer look. Orange means that there is a significant amount of problematic content. Finally, red means the paper has a serious problem. 

Step 8: Click on the green/yellow/orange/red flag to access your Unicheck report. For information on interpreting a Unicheck report, see "How do I interpret my Unicheck Report?"
