There will be a number in the column for plagiarism indication (if this feature is covered in the institution's licence) for all submitted papers. The percentage shows how much of the current paper has been found in other external sources.
The plagiarism report from Urkund or Ephorus serves as a documentation tool when you, as an assessor, want to investigate if there is a case of plagiarism or not. The report from Urkund only works as a general indication of plagiarised sections and cannot independently differentiate between cheating and not cheating. The report highlights duplicates and similarities between participants' papers and external sources, and includes quotes in some cases. The plagiarism report does not give a definitive answer on whether there is a case of plagiarism or not. It will always be up to you to make the final decision.
Reading the report
Found in the participant list of the Assessor flow page, the percentage in WISEflow tells you how much of the participants' assignment has been found in external sources. By opening the report you can get more information on where and what has been found in external sources, and where you can find these external sources. When you click the percentage in WISEflow (as depicted above), you will be taken to either Urkund or Ephorus, depending on what licence the institution has, to see the complete report.
Urkund uses orange and beige colors and the corresponding percentages to indicate the extent to which the text of the participant's answer matches the external sources. The colour code ranges from beige to dark orange depending on the qualitative significance. The darker the colour (dark orange), the bigger the similarity.
The source which resembles the submitted paper is shown with a direct link, and it is thus easy to open it and check it out. You can also deselect comparison sources if the source which has been plagiarized from should not be taken into account (for instance regarding a resubmitted paper).
The report is structured in three parts. Metadata for the hand-in is shown in the upper left part. In the upper right corner, you will see the sources that are being compared to. You can include or exclude the sources that are being compared by ticking the sources on and off (either a minus or a plus). The parts where plagiarism have been detected are shown in the bottom part of the screen and are highlighted with a colour.
Ephorus shows the number of reports where duplicated sections have been found (Chosen report). You can check each individual report and see the percentage of the assignment that has been plagiarized from the source. If the source is available on the internet, a link will be available. If this is not a link but a string of text, it can be a previously handed in submission. This shows the submitted text to the left and the source where the text has been found to the right. The orange colour indicates possible plagiarism, and a blue colour indicates plagiarism but with minor alterations.
