Since the advent of online education with its new technology academicians have raised the question as to how instructors can keep students from cheating. As a result of this perceived problem, several anti-plagiarism software and services have become available for academic use. This paper evaluates such programs and services, including the German product, Plagiarism-Finder, the freeware, Wcopyfind and the Glatt Plagiarism Detection Service. After examining and evaluating these applications, the authors draw several conclusions concerning efforts to detect cheating among students including a report on the results of a statistical analysis of the degree of plagiarism found between online and regular students.
