That may be possible with written exams, where papers are marked by different examiners, even different examining boards. But when all the papers are fed into the same computer system, spotting bought answers should be relatively simple.
To check students are working in a fair and academically appropriate manner, The Open University uses two types of text comparison software to detect potential cases of plagiarism in work that is submitted for assessment. These are:
which compares work submitted by one student with assignments submitted by all other students on the module (as well as previous presentations of the module where appropriate). The main use of CopyCatch is to check for cases of collusion.
Turnitin, which carries out the equivalent of an internet search, looks for matches between the text included in a piece of work submitted by a student with all forms of information and resources publicly available on the internet. The main use of
Turnitin is to check for cases of direct copying, and/or not properly referencing various types of source materials.
It can also be used to compare each student’s assignments with the module materials and other commonly used or provided references.
