Detecting Plagiarism In History from Pasting Large Amounts of Code

This is a feature request. It would be nice if there was some sort of flag in a particular code.org lesson or level for plagiarism. I know we can look at Version History, but I find that to be cumbersome, and I have to first suspect plagiarism. It seems like it wouldn’t be too hard for code.org to flag when all of a sudden a bunch of code ends up in a particular level from just being pasted in. There might be some situations where a student works in a remix and then pastes over to the lesson, but those could be dealt with on a case by case basis. Another option could be something like a “total time engaged” statistic so it would be obvious that a particular student couldn’t have done all that work in such a short time.

Please send your feature request to support@code.org
