    Thanks, I have added the new clean zip file in a new version and hid the old version

    Please note that DB writing methods like $DB->insert_record() do not return boolean any more. There is no need to raise error()
    manually. Instead of low-level access to the config_plugins table, pls use the API for that - like set_config().

    In db/events.php, all the relevant code seems to be commented out. Am I missing something here?

    You create functions in the global PHP scope without the valid frankenstyle prefix. This is strongly discouraged in order to prevent
    collisions with (current and/or future) core code or some other plugin. See for details.

    For now, I am going to mark this plugin as needing more work until we get these issues resolved. Thanks for your patience with the
    review and approval process.

    I will fix this
    I will work on changing this
    I don't use any of these events since our service is instance and doesn't rely on cron jobs. I left them commented out in case I need them later and I need a template. I can remove these if you want.
    >frankenstyle prefix
    I'll update this

    Thanks for looking at the code and giving feedback.

    I have made these changes, can you please re-check?

    So your plugin does not implement the plagiarism API? It's not supposed to check for things right after they are submitted by the student?

    Looks like I misspelled that word: not "instance" but "instant". The plugin implements only the API that it needs. This includes the settings, save form, create form, etc but since my service doesn't have the same limitations as other services, I don't need to have a cron job or any additional notifications. From the code's perspective, the paper is either submitted or not and if its submitted, there's a score. If it's not, then submit it.

    Is there anything else pending that I need to address?

    Well, you probably want to upload the new version with the fixes and then re-schedule the plugin for approval again using the Administration menu.

    You are cleared to land now. Welcome to the Plugins directory.

    I am not being able to register for a free trial.
    A blank page is returned when I click on the "Submit" button in the registration page.

    The "__MACOSX" folder in the .zip file distribution breaks automated installation of this package (example: composer). Please remove this folder, thanks!

    Vericite is the plagiarism detection service we use at Albright. The service acts primarily as a teaching tool to help students learn to cite their sources properly. VeriCite needs to be set up when an assignment or discussion forum is created. To use VeriCite after submissions have already been made to an assignment, see the help document VeriCite after the Fact in the Moodle Help Center.

    When creating an assignment, under VeriCite, check the first box Enable VeriCite Plagiarism Service. Note: the other boxes appear to be checked, but they don’t function until the top box is checked.
