About The Plagiarism Tester
With easy-access to the Web, it is not surprising that many students are trying to get away with copying chunks of text they find online and pasting them into their own essays. Often, many students don't realize this is wrong until they get caught. Copying part or all of someone else's work, without giving credit to them, is called Plagiarism (often incorrectly spelled plagiarizm, plagerism or plagairism).
This tool allows you to check if you are likely to get caught - it simply runs a Google query for your text, and returns any exact matches it finds. If it returns anything, you could be in trouble.
It's not foolproof, but gives you a good indication if you are liable to get caught plagiarizing... and the consequences could be severe.
