A Free Plagiarism Checker for Teachers

A Free Plagiarism Checker for Teachers

PlagiarismChecker.com provides teachers with a quick and easy way to check content from student work for exact phrase matches on the internet. Tools like Turnitin are much more robust, but can be cost prohibitive for teachers.

Plagiarism Checker

Simply go to PlagiarismChecker.com. Like most free sites, it’s littered with adds. In fact you’ll need to close the add that pops up in the bottom right corner before you can use the site. To get started, copy any suspicious sentence from a student paper and paste it into the search box. You can enter multiple phrases or sentences, just hit “Enter” after each phrase. Click search when you are done entering phrases you want to check, and a Google search for your phrase or phrases will open. Exact phrase matches are shown in bold on the search page.

Great to see more options other than turnitin. I’d love to know if there is a checker that could be easily integrated into Classroom and Google Docs.

I just came across Unicheck. I haven’t had a chance to check it out yet. I’m not sure they have a solid free option, but it does look like it integrates with Google Classroom and a few others.


Alternative to Turnitin is the most popular option. I’ve got acquainted with Unicheck recently at my school and must admit that one can work with it via its Add-on just in Google Docs. It’s really convenient. As for the integration with Google Classroom, I don’t know exactly, but it’s worth trying I suppose.
