Detecting Plagiarism Among a Set of Very Similar Programs

Published in Gallery at 31 Oct 2012


An algorithm to detect similarity in a set of already similar source codes is an important issue for many educational institutions. In teaching programming courses, students are asked to solve a specific problem. Thus, all of the submit-ted programs already have an inherent similarity: they are written to solve the same problem. The algorithm proposed in this document is specifically designed to detect plagiarism within a set of of already similar source codes and assess the statistical significance of the calculated similarity.
