Abstract

In order to improve the quality and usability of the Checksims software similarity detection tool, we present a series of modifications to the original project; changes include Syntax Tree comparison algorithms, integration with existing grading software, user interface improvements, and the ability to perform comparison against historical data. The new algorithms have been tested against both the old algorithms and against MOSS, showing that each of these three catches and reports some that other do not.
