What do our plagiarism ratings on Coderbyte mean?
On the premium plan we provide a plagiarism detection feature. This works in two ways:
- Our system detects if a candidate copy and pastes code from outside the editor into Coderbyte.
- Our system runs the candidates code against our database of solutions to check for similarities.
Based on these two factors, you will see either:
Light copying - some copy-paste was detected.
Detected - Candidates code was copy-pasted and matches some code we have in our database.
