What Is VeriCite?

page with block of text flagged in redVeriCite is an online tool that La Salle has integrated with Canvas to check students’ written work for improper citation and possible plagiarism. This plagiarism detection service automatically checks submitted work against an index of online sources and can be enabled directly in the Assignment settings in Canvas. It gives an indicator of the likelihood of plagiarism and provides instructors with detailed information about the possible sources that students used in a VeriCite Report.

For more information about using VeriCite for your Canvas assignments, check out the VeriCite Resources on our Faculty Guide to Canvas.  You can also contact the Instructional Design team for a one-on-one consultation about how to use VeriCite and for more information about how this tool is being used across campus.
