EVE is a powerful tool designed to combat the growing problem of internet plagiarism. EVE accepts essays in plain text format and returns links to web pages from which a student may have plagiarized. EVE has been developed to be powerful enough to find plagiarized material while not overwhelming the professor with false links. Try EVE by giving it an essay in plain text (.txt) format. Next, find some similar material on the web, copy a couple of paragraphs into the essay, and give the new essay to EVE. In our testing, EVE found approximately 80-90% of plagiarized material.

"...EVE aced the test, finding everything I had plagiarized. EVE is faster, testing four papers in fifteen minutes, a fraction of the four hours it took Plagiarism.org to respond."
"One word for your program--FABULOUS. Thank you, thank you, thank you. The frustration is over! I will be recommending to our school system that we purchase EVE. I must tell you again how excited I am to have discovered EVE. I spent probably five hours of my own time trying to find the source of this student's plagiarism. EVE found it for me in three minutes!

I read the best paper I've ever received as a high school astronomy teacher and knew it was too good to have come from the author. Suspecting plagiarism isn't enough in today's litigious society, so I ran across Eve and in less than three minutes had the proof I needed. Eve found that 91% of the first page was plagiarized, and the remainder was due to misspellings during my OCR preprocessing. Including the web site in the analysis allowed me to confirm, and even print out a copy of the original work in case the boy's parents need convincing. It's a pleasure doing business with you."
-Science Teacher from Illinois, USA
"I recently tried my newly acquired EVE and found three incidents of plagiarism. Each search took EVE less than two minutes. One was by a grade 12 English student that took me to a site virtually impossible to find by conventional search engine method. I know, because I tried a conventional search as an experimental test.Do you know how valuable a little tool you have? I'm pounding a drum for EVE.This has proven to be much too valuable a tool to simply go into cruise mode over. As many educators as possible should hear about it."
