Abstract

Checksims is a tool developed at WPI that detects suspicious similarities between pieces of code. I present a set of improvements to both the usability and functionality of the tool, namely integration with Canvas, which WPI instructors use to manage their courses, along with an improved GUI, and increased robustness of the tool when using a syntax tree comparison algorithm. These changes will make Checksims better at quickly detecting academic dishonesty than ever.
