Analysis of student assigmnents for potential contract cheating
I'm currently an Academic Misconduct Officer for a regional University within Australia. At the present time, myself and other misconduct officers are finding it challenging to identify students that employ "contract cheating" websites where students pay such sites to write assignments on their behalf and submit them under under the pretense of it being their own work. One such way we can identify this type of misconduct is by comparing previous assignments the submitted has submitted. Because contract cheating websites employ different people to write their assignments, a sudden change in style might indicate the student has used such a service.
Therefore, I was wondering if there were extensions for rapidminer where word documents can be entered and a type of analysis done such as readability, metadata, punctuation, sentence length, vocabulary and other possible linguistic features?
Many thanks in advance
