Additional academic honesty checking requirements in the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technologies: Computer programming assignments may also be checked by specialist code similarity detection software. The Faculty of Engineering & IT currently uses the MOSS similarity detection engine. These programs work in a similar way to TurnItIn in that they check for similarity against a database of previously submitted assignments and code available on the internet, but they have added functionality to detect cases of similarity of holistic code structure in cases such as global search and replace of variable names, reordering of lines, changing of comment lines, and the use of white space.
