EVE User Testimonials and Awards
EVE was given a 5 Cow rating by TUCOWS - the highest possible rating from the TUCOWS network!
"Eve is a wonderful tool for teachers who deal with reports, essays, and other writing projects. Just open up a file that your student has written and Eve will check the Internet to see if any or all of it has been plagiarized. Choose how in-depth of a search you want, then click Go - it's that easy! An extremely useful tool to make sure your students' words are really their own. An easy to use interface completes the package, consider this a must download!"

EVE was given a rating by ZDNet's Hotfiles.com!
"Does it work? We grabbed a paper from a random Internet cheat site and put the program through its paces. Sure enough, it found the paper -- on another site even. Digital copycats beware: EVE is out to blow your cover."

"...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."
"I'm sold! I downloaded the trial version of your product recently because I suspected a 10th grade social studies student had plagarized some material from the internet My only problem however, was that I couldn't prove it. I used the trial version to check out the material and it found the website within 5 minutes! I now have the hard proof to back up my accusations. Moreover, knowing that I have a tool such as this at my disposal makes students less inclined to copy reports from the internet. I have passed the word about this program on to my colleagues."

"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!
-English Teacher from OH, USA
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."

"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."
-Educator from Kelowna, BC, Canada
This is certainly an excellent idea! I'm a teacher in London Ontario Canada and a colleague of mine suspected that a paper had been plagiarized.
We searched the web and by some chance of fate, stumbled across your site!
We downloaded your program and tested it. Needless to say we found the paper on line! Your program gives us a fair chance at catching students who plagiarise papers from the web!
Thanks to your site I feel wonderful today!

"To test these automated plagiarism-detectors, I constructed a mini-essay with randomly selected sentences from works by four major authors: Karl Marx, Oscar Wilde, Bram Stoker and Ralph Waldo Emerson. I also included a slightly revised version of the sentences from Marx's "The Communist Manifesto," changing words and punctuation to see if it could be identified.
Plagiarism.org found the revised Marx paragraph, but completely missed the direct quotes from Wilde, Stoker and Emerson. Overall, Plagiarism.org found the paper -- composed entirely of plagiarized material -- to have a high degree of originality.
EVE, however, found everything -- the sentence from Wilde's "Birthday of the Infanta," the portion of Bram Stoker's "Dracula" that I copied from the text, and the sentence from Emerson's "The Transcendentalist."
