"good option for free"

April 11, 2011  |  By dushyant01

 |  Version: Viper - the Anti-plagiarism Scanner 1.5

Pros

- probably an exhaustive check for plagiarism. no way to find out for sure.
- excellent for use against a local database. This helps when I check whether a student has copied from another.

Cons

- network issues. Unable to log-in/disconnection during peak times.
- server issues. Often ur job will be queued, without indication of wait time.
- many results with less than 1% match. Not sure how to interpret these results.
- GUI and output.

Summary

Useful.

Updated on Apr 26, 2011

Within 2 weeks of previous review, I am writing another contrasting review. Of course, this is on the latest version - 3.0, which I had to install because Viper won't let me use previous version.
The problem with 3.0 version seems to arise from the new net.tcp protocol used by their server. I tried with and without firewall to reach the server, but was not able to even log in.
Cannot comment on any new features from version 3.0 as I could not get past the login screen.

"Thorough & accurate results.Frequent network interrupts"

April 07, 2011  |  By berryw

 |  Version: Viper - the Anti-plagiarism Scanner 1.5

Pros

Terrific results. Specific places to find plagiarized content specified. Easy to understand reports. Returns student paper with highlighted plagiarized passages. Makes life easy for the instructor.

Cons

The Viper server frequently disconnects in the middle of a job requiring you to re-post that job. Software is a bit quirky & requires some getting used to. Instructions are not posted at the links they should be at. Not the easiest thing to use.

Summary

Despite the several "cons" I use Viper for every student submission. The results are unparalleled and well worth the frustration with the user interface and the inadequate server service.

"Ok but server is no good"

March 06, 2011  |  By Twistedcan

 |  Version: Viper - the Anti-plagiarism Scanner 1.5

Pros

Easy to use and the quality of the scan is ok.

Cons

The software connects to an server somewhere on the internet. This server is slow and unreliable. I have not been able to du a single succesfull scan. The server connection is always disconnected.

Summary

You install the software on your computer and register for free on a website. The software is straightforward to use but unfortunately the server supporting the use of the program is unreliable. I tried to scan 7 different 10-50 page assignments but didn't manage to finish a single scan before server connection was interrupted. Bottom line: The software didn't perform!
