What is URKUND  Software tool?

How URKUND works ?

URKUND software, online tool that, after analyzing student's assignment, is used to text-check student's assignment against other student's work to ensure that work of any student is NOT plagiarized.

The URKUND process starts when any student submits their document to the system. This can either be via the schools’ existing learning platform or as simple as sending it to company through email attachment. The system supports a wide variety of the most popular file formats such as .DOC, .PDF, etc. like your standard word processors as well as archives when emailed. Language independently the text is extracted from the document and the processing begins.

When a document starts to display similarities to other sources a matching profile begins to take shape. We not only record the degree of the matches but take into account any usages of paraphrasing and synonyms while checking for any other form of substitution.

When the process is finished, an analysis overview is generated and delivered to the teacher, either via the used learning platform or by email. The results of the analysis are presented in a comprehensible report so that the teacher can make the final judgement based on our analysis if any plagiarism has indeed occurred.
