Hello Ilana Scherl...
Several Canvas schools use a third-party LTI integration with Canvas called Turnitin. Dallas E Hulsey has a complete write-up on Turnitin and how it integrates with Canvas which you may be interested in looking through: Canvas and Turnitin. There is some setup involved, so if you are not an admin for your school's Canvas environment, you'd need to talk with someone who is. (Our school's library, for example, already had Turnitin available to our faculty, so it was just a matter of us working with the library staff to get some initial setup information so that we could set things up on the Canvas side.)
Two other LTI options that look to be available are Unicheck and PlagScan, but I don't know much about either of those...nor do I know if there may be any costs associated with them.
I hope this information is helpful to you.
Another option is also The specified item was not found. which is what we're demo-ing right now with our school. PlagScan doesn't seem to have Speedgrader integration the way they should, but Vericite has deep integration like The specified item was not found.
Hello Ilana Scherl,
The easiest way to check for plagiarism is to use a plagiarism detection tool The one that perfectly finds text matches and shows the source where the similiraties are found.
I’d love to add a few words about one other good option: The specified item was not found. is good to go. Many words can be said here, but it’s always better to try, feel the speed and accuracy. The algorithms work utmost accurate, so the system can’t be cheated. As soon as a source appears on the internet, Unicheck is able to identify it.
If you have a wish to test and understand how everything works, just let me know.
p.s. we have many interesting suggestions for you; I mean we can always find the way to help those who ask us about it.

Hi there, Ilana Scherl...
It looks like you've received a few different responses here, and none of them is necessarily "Correct" because there is more than one tool available to check for plagiarism within Canvas. Since this is the case, I am going to change the format of your topic from a "question" to a "discussion". A "question" usually has one "correct" answer, but a "discussion" is more open-ended and could have multiple solutions. I hope this is okay with you.
