In some cases you want only the authors of the documents, i.e. your students, to get access to their documents. You can create accounts for students with the possibility to self-check their own documents. Only the students themselves will have access to those documents. Their documents are by default never moved to the repository.

Create a Student group (+ self-checks) if you do not already have one, as follows:

  1. Click on Administration in the menu on the top right-hand side of the page.

  2. Click on the Groups (Subdivisions) tab in the menu on the left-hand side.

  3. Click on the Add group button to open the Add group popup.

  4. To create a Student group with self-checks you can use the template by selecting the Student group (+ self-checks) option in the Copy settings from dropdown.
    This will create a group where students can upload documents (independent of Assignments), as well as check documents for plagiarism themselves. You can set a limit on how many PlagPoints the students in this group can use.

  5. To create this group click on the Create group button in the bottom right of the popup.

  6. If you want to assign already existing users to this group, you can do so in the Users page. You can continue by following the steps in the manual for how to assign your Student group to existing users.

  7. If you want to create accounts for all the students who should join this group, head on to our manual for Adding users. The e-mail addresses of the respective students are required for this purpose.
