We are introducing changes to how Similarity Check works in order to make plagiarism detection more efficient for submissions of candidates that are most relevant in your hiring process.
Starting August 1st, 2021, in order to promote efficiency of your hiring process and help you focus on the best candidates, we will complete Similarity Checks for all CodeCheck candidates who reached your Passing Score. If there is no Passing Score defined in your test, we will verify submissions of all candidates who scored at least 40% on the test. This change allows us to empower you with crucial information about your potential hires faster.
Frequently Asked Questions
I do not need Similarity Check for Candidates scoring as low as 40%. Can I get Similarity Check reports only for scores above 50%, 60%, or 70%?
Yes! Passing Score will define the threshold for your Similarity Checks. We highly encourage setting your Passing Score in line with scores you would expect from your candidates.
What if I need Similarity Check for scores lower than 40%?
In that case, you need to set a Passing Score for your tests that will correspond to the threshold that is relevant for you. We recommend setting Passing Scores in line with the scores achieved during internal test runs of the test, based on pass rates for tasks in your test, based on the number of candidates you’d like to progress, or your own historical data.
How do I set a Passing Score?
You can find information and guidance on how to set a Passing Score in your tests in our support article.
Will you re-check my candidates’ submissions after I change the Passing Score?
Changing Passing Score after a candidate has submitted their solution will not affect the status of their Similarity Check.
Can you set a Passing Score on a task level rather than on a test level?
It is currently only possible to set a Passing Score on a test level.
