As a part of the ongoing life cycle of product innovation, we sometimes discontinue the sale and support of certain products and services. On December 31st, 2023, this discontinuance will apply to the Unicheck integration within Livetext by Watermark.
Why are we making this decision?
Removing functionality is always a tough decision, as we know there will always be some users who find value and utility in the feature provided. Unfortunately, Turnitin, the parent company of Unicheck announced that it will be discontinuing the Unicheck product effective December 31st, 2023; therefore, we are making the difficult decision to remove support for Unicheck from LiveText by Watermark at the end of the year.
What does this mean to me?
This change will remove the advanced assessment feature that would allow an administrator or instructor to enable Unicheck as an option when sending out an assignment. No other assessment functionality will be impacted.
No replacement plagiarism integration is planned for LiveText by Watermark. However, Turnitin does offer other plagiarism solutions, such as Turnitin Similarity, that are available for institutions to purchase and that can be integrated into the Watermark Student Learning & Licensure product if you chose to upgrade to Student Learning & Licensure in the future.
