[LON-CAPA-users] Plagiarism Checking

Hi All,

Can anyone point me toward documentation of the current plagiarism checking in Lon-Capa? I've found the following note online taken by a colleague during the 2011 Lon-Capa users conference I think:

"If submitted plain text, can do plagiarism checker against all other submissions to that same problem (regardless of course, institution, etc.)"

But I don't know if that accurately describes the state today. Somewhere else I saw an indication that this works only in essay response questions, not, for example, in uploaded Word documents.  Thanks for guidance and help on this.
