Plagiarism enhancements on our backend coding environment

August 4, 2022 | Hiring, Learning & Development

We are extremely excited to inform that we have made major enhancements w.r.t plagiarism score calculations on our general-purpose backend coding environment (CodeLysis).

Below mentioned are the key highlights:

1. Enhanced scalability of plagiarism for large-scale drives

We will now be able to support even larger-scale drives seamlessly.

The recent changes have optimized the plagiarism calculation, thereby reducing the overall TAT drastically.

2. Improved accuracy in calculation of plagiarism scores

We have made multiple advancements and changes to improve the quality of scores calculated in order to provide valid potential matches between test-taker codes. The changes in our improvement have significantly brought-down the number of false positives.

Additionally, we have introduced new tags such as N/A and No Matches to classify test-takers basis their plagiarism scores for faster and easier filtration rather than using the traditional Acceptable and Not-Acceptable.

3. Making plagiarism threshold configurable.

By default, our plagiarism threshold is fixed at 60%, but now users can customise this value basis their requirement. As soon as the threshold is configured (before or after the drive), the changes will be reflected in the reports and the test-takers will be tagged into suitable plagiarism tags accordingly.
