Once an assignment has been uploaded to Urkund, the application will produce two things:

  • Similarity Urkund Analysis score - This number shows how much of a student's assignment matches content from Urkund's databases.
  • Similarity Urkund Analysis report - Alongside a copy of the student's original work, this report gives further detail on the specific sources of matching text.

Further details on the capabilities of Urkund's service can be found on the Urkund website.

Originality Analysis reports and scores can be made available to students (where this may be appropriate), however since a high originality analysis score doesn’t necessarily indicate plagiarism, guidance should be given regarding how to interpret the results.
In this way, the service not only supports academic integrity but it can also be the basis for writing skills development (e.g. a high originality analysis score may indicate an over reliance on source materials).
