Introducing zyBooks’ Similarity Checker

What is it?

A report that gives instructors an easy way to compare student submissions on a zyLab and
determine if the amount of similarity is acceptable. This report checks the similarity of each
student’s latest, best submission of a specific zyLab, then shows the pairs of student
submissions that are the most similar. Integrated directly into zyLabs, submissions do not need
to be uploaded to an external site.

Where can you find and run this report?

This report is available from the “Lab Statistics and Submissions” area of a zyLab. Pairs of
submissions are shown at the top of the report comparing student submissions, with the most
similar submissions having the highest scores and appearing toward the top of the report.
