Which system am I using?
You may be using the Old LoudCloud if you see a purple/blue menu bar or if your url starts with lc-trad1.gcu.edu, lc-ugrad3.gcu.edu, or lc-grad3.gcu.edu.
You may be using the New LoudCloud (also referred to as the LMS) if your menu dropdown is on the left side or if your url starts with lms-trad.gcu.edu, lms-ugrad.gcu.edu, or lms-grad.gcu.edu.
After uploading your assignment to LoudCloud, you have the ability to view your Citation Report and make changes to the document if necessary. To view your report, click the Submit button under the Citation Report heading in the dropbox.
The initial assignment submission through the Citation Report system typically returns a report within 15 minutes but can take up to an hour. Additional submissions after this point may not return results for a full 24 hours so they don’t pull information from a previous draft. It is always best to create and submit your work a day or two in advance to give the system time to fully generate a report.
Once the similarity index number has returned, click the View Report option to be taken a full display of your originality report.
You may see the report in the format shown below. (If not, please navigate to LopesWrite for more information). Click the red numerical similarity score on the right side of the page in order to see your match overview. Clicking this option will highlight the location of any matched information in your paper.
The match overview will show the percentage of matching information with the source that is indicated.
The highlighted content in your paper will be color coded to match with the correlating percentage in the match overview.
