Read on and find out (it’s not too late to vote)!

Just 30% of you said YES, indeed, you had used a plagiarism checker for this purpose.  The majority by a long way said NO, you had never used software like this to help you cheat.  This really supports the view that plagiarism checkers are there to help honest students avoid accidental plagiarism and not to help them evade university scanners.
