A new way to help students turn in their best work • Google Blog
Brian Hendricks, product manager for Google Suite for Education:
<p>Today’s students face a tricky challenge: In an age when they can explore every idea imaginable on the internet, how do they balance outside inspiration with authenticity in their own work? Students have to learn to navigate the line between other people’s ideas and their own, and how and when to properly cite sources.
We've heard from instructors that they copy and paste passages into Google Search to check if student work is authentic, which can be repetitive, inefficient and biased. They also often spend a lot of time giving feedback about missed citations and improper paraphrasing. By integrating the power of Search into our assignment and grading tools, we can make this quicker and easier. 

That’s why Google is introducing <a href="">originality reports</a>. This new feature—with several reports included free in every course—will be part of Classroom and Assignments, which was also announced today. We create originality reports by scanning student work for matched phrases across hundreds of billions of web pages and tens of millions of books. </p>

My initial reaction was that this is totally depressing - that you're forced to twiddle words around so they're desperately different from what you found in a book, and even then you might fall afoul of a book or paper you've never actually read, because how many ways are there to frame some sentences? Maybe the reality will be better. Maybe the teachers should have to take it too.

Feels like this belongs here : Professors
By default, most plagiarism checkers don't check quoted passages, because... well, they're quotes. My professor caught a group of students surrounding their entire papers in quotation marks, so that the online scanner skipped the entire report. In a +1 moment, the color of the quotation marks had been changed to white, so that they weren't obvious.

We hired Fiverr workers to write about Fiverr's IPO — Quartz
Unsure about Grammarly’s assessment, I also dropped a couple lines at random into Google. This revealed that the first half of Five Dollar’s story was lifted largely from a piece written by MarketWatch, while the second half was a loose revision of a post by TechCrunch.
