Plagiarism control- this file cannot be checked for plagiarism

This usually occurs if you enable plagiarism control after a hand in. To be able to request a plagiarism report, please go back and disable the plagiarism control in the assignment settings.



  1. Add assignment without plagiarism control checked in the assignment settings
  2. Hand in an assignment
  3. Edit the assignment and check the plagiarism control box
  4. Go back to the assignment- and click "show" the status message should now show “This file cannot be checked for plagiarism” and there is no alternative to run this through the plagiarism control.
  5. Go back to edit the assignment and uncheck the plagiarism control box.
  6. Go back to the assignment, now the box “Request plagiarism report” has appeared.
