D2L / Brightspace Instructor - LTI Version 1.3

Creating Assignments

From your Brightspace course, click on Existing Activities.

A menu will appear, scroll down to click on Copyleaks Assignment or a close equivalent (the name will depend on the name your admin chose when setting it up).

Once you've clicked on the Copyleaks Assignment tool it will open up. From here you will be able to select general settings. Clicking on the Scan settings link will open a separate tab where the settings can be managed.

You can see an image of the Scan settings page below. Once you have decided on the configuration of these settings for your assignment, make sure to click Save Settings before closing out the tab:

Once you've returned to Brightspace, click Submit Assignment at the bottom of the window.

Viewing Reports

After students have submitted their assignments, click on the assignment to access the submissions page.

At the top of the window, you'll find information on the plagiarism and AI detection totals for the assignment. Scroll down to a student's report that you want to access. Clicking View report will open the report in a new tab.

The Copyleaks Report will appear similar to as shown below:

Accessing & Using the Instructor Plagiarism + AI Scan Tool

The Instructor Plagiarism + AI Scan Tool enables instructors to scan files or copy and pasted content for plagiarism outside of an assignment. The tool is helpful for late submissions, non-assignment modules such as discussion board posts, and your own class materials. Below the upload window, instructors can view the similarity score of their uploads at a glance and view the interactive report by simply clicking on the score.

To add the tool to a course select Existing Activities, then choose LTI 1.3 Teacher Scanning Tool (or whatever the tool has been named by your admin):

Next, you will see the tool appear in the module. Students won't be able to access the tool but to avoid any confusion we recommend hiding the tool. This can be done by clicking the down arrow next to the tool then selecting Hide from Users.
