A Software Program That Detects Copied Words

When I decided to go to college in Portugal, I never expected to fall in love with the country and stay there. I knew that I would enjoy my college years there, but I met a guy. School was amazing, but he turned out to be my everything. We both graduated, and I got a job at a magazine there. I worked my way up within a few years, and I was soon one of the lower level editors. I was able to maintain this job by using plagiarism check software for Portuguese.

I knew Portuguese pretty well as I had studied it for years before even going to Portugal for school. I was able to read reader submission articles and know whether any of them were good enough to be published in our magazine. What I did not know though was if any of it was plagiarized. I wish that no one would submit articles that were not 100 percent original, but I found out in my work that it was a pipe dream. Even some people who felt they were not copying someone else’s work often did, which is why I needed to find a good software program that would help me to identify if someone was indeed copying from someone else.

I looked at a few different software programs, but none impressed me as much as the website that I started using the moment I found it. The website that I use searched trillions of website pages to see if there is even a hint of something getting copied and passed off as an original. I was impressed when it caught a few things that I really tried to sneak past it, and that is how I knew that this was the right software program to use. It has helped me to up my own game too!… Read More..

A Girl in Her Paper

College was also where I met my first girlfriend. Her name was Rose. She was a cheerleader and very beautiful. It was funny how we met. We had a class together and had to do a term paper.

I was overjoyed to have this beautiful cheerleader as my partner. I look forward to working with her. … Read More..

Making Sure They Are Not Cheating

I have been a teacher for nearly 20 years. For as much as some things change, other things just do not. One of the things that don’t change are the students who try to take shortcuts when completing their homework. I have each student write several essays each school year, and it is a large chunk of their final grade. I understand some people are born writers, and some struggle with it mightily. That is why I don’t grade based purely on content but on determination as well. I also use a plagiarism checker because there are some students who just take the easy way out.

What they don’t realize is that I am able to tell when they turn in something they did not write for the most part. I also am able to tell when it is blatantly copied from another piece of work, even if I cannot say where it came from. I knew that I would need to have proof though if I accused one of my students of not writing their own essays, and that is why I decided to find a plagiarism checker in the first place.

I looked at quite a few different ones online, and i was not able to find one that I was happy with. I finally decided that I would need to pay for one, which I had the budget to do so. I immediately was able to find the one that I wanted to use when I decided to look at them this way. I ran one of my student’s essays through it, and I was both happy and sad with the results. I was happy because my suspicions were proven to be true. I was sad because I knew that my student needed to face the consequences. My students know I use this now, so I am finding that not as many are trying to cheat the system now.… Read More..

I Let the People Decide

A year ago, I created an online game that gained quite a following. The game is a battle royale style game where a large number of competitors are pitted against each other until only one is remaining. I wanted to find out what new features I should implement in the next update of the game, so I used a survey maker online to create a survey that all of the players could complete. The survey choice with the highest result would become the next feature, while the others would be added at some later date.

One by one, the players filled out the online survey. Out of all of the options available in the survey, the most popular one was the addition of vehicles. The people gave me their answer, so I went to work on making vehicle models and writing the code to add them into the game. I added three vehicle types: a car, a motorcycle, and an ATV.… Read More..
