The Plagiarism Checker (Free / Premium) is another new system in our tests. It is offered by the University of Maryland. We tested both the free and the premium version (8$/month), strangely enough, the free version was slightly better than the premium version. It does not quantify the plagiarism, but notes “possible plagiarism”. When you click on the link, you are given the Google or the Yahoo page with the search results (we used the default, Google). There is no side-by-side reporting done, so it is really not clear what this system does, beside selecting the sample. We were not successful in contacting anyone responsible for the system, our emails were consistently returned with “temporarily local problem please try later”. The overall effectiveness was 56%, resulting in a D grade.
