Enabling Urkund

Urkund is enabled by default within Moodle assignments, so unless you wish to disable the feature or otherwise modify the settings, staff may not need to do much more than create a new Moodle assignment.
Nevertheless, should it be helpful, settings can be modified as required (clicking on the question mark associated with each setting will provide further information about each option). The default Urkund settings as they appear in Moodle Assignment settings are shown below:


Please note that:

  • Urkund does not place limits on the maximum file size that can be analysed (though Moodle limits uploads to 50 MB per file)
  • Limiting file types within the Urkund settings does not limit the students’ ability to upload specific file types to Moodle (it simply defines which of the submitted file types uploaded to Moodle will be analysed by Urkund).
  • Unlike some other text matching systems, there is no way to automatically exclude the bibliography from the analysis

Urkund must be enabled before a student submits their assignment in order for an originality score / report to be generated.  Enabling the setting retrospectively will not affect files already submitted.
