SIMnet now supports the same style ofAcademic Integrity DetectionforResourcefiles as Project assignments. Academic Integrity Detection is available for Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Access files from Microsoft Office 2013 or newer. With this feature instructors can determine if students are submitting their own file or another student’s; or if students have inserted portions of another student’s work into their own file.

To use the SIMnet Academic Integrity Detection for resource files, first upload your resource file to SIMnet from theCreateoption in theResourcessection. Academic integrity detection is only available forFiles, notLinks. When assigning the resource to a course there is a new section in theAssignment Detailspane for resources:

In theAssignment Preferences section, select theEnable Student Submissionscheck box to enable the Academic Integrity Detection options further down in the same section. Select theEnable Integrity Detection for the Start Fileto enable Academic Integrity Detection in your Resource file. If you would like to block students from uploading a file if they are submitting another student’s file or a file containing portions of another student’s work, leave theAllow Student Submissions with Integrity Violationcheck box blank. If you would like to allow students to submit a file with work that is not their own, check theAllow Student Submissions with Integrity Violationcheck box.
