What is the status of the 'similar response' checking in LON-CAPA for 
essayresponse questions?

I presume it is currently only functional for straight text. Does it work 
on things like word documents?

David Ingram is looking to have technical reports (extensive lab reports 
done once a quarter) uploaded into LON-CAPA and checked for plagiarism as 
well as graded. He pointed me to Lou Bloomfields site and was wondering 
what might be done to incorporate this work.


Anyone else working on this kind of stuff out there?
