Inspera acquires Crossplag

Inspera announced today the strategic acquisition of Crossplag, a powerful tool for originality checking and AI authorship detection.

OSLO, NORWAY, July 26, 2023/ — Inspera’s cloud-based assessment ecosystem offers a comprehensive suite of capabilities for seamless assessments. Starting with planning and design, through to delivery, and grading across various formats. Assessment types include formative, summative, and diagnostic exams, coursework, tests, quizzes, term papers, and more.

By incorporating Crossplag’s expertise and technology, Inspera aims to further enhance its solutions, each of which empower educators and institutions to deliver authentic assessments with ease.

With the full incorporation of Crossplag into the Inspera digital assessment and remote proctoring ecosystem, clients can expect tighter integration of originality checking and AI writing detection capabilities. Crossplag is the first and only plagiarism detection tool to work across a large number of languages, including translations. This means student submissions can be checked for cross-language matching and originality.

We understand that institutions, educators and students want to be assured that their degrees and qualifications have integrity at their core. With the recent rapid rise and widespread availability of AI tools, the need for AI writing detection has been elevated to the same level as originality and similarity checking. The incorporation of Crossplag capabilities in all of these areas will enable institutions to assess with greater confidence.

Crossplag’s AI writing detection capabilities, coupled with the subject expertise of educators make for a powerful combination in upholding standards and integrity.

This acquisition is set to accelerate the impressive work accomplished by Crossplag so far. This will ensure Inspera’s clients and partners benefit from innovative solutions designed to meet their evolving needs.

“We are thrilled to welcome Crossplag to the Inspera family,” said Andrew Cons, Global CEO at Inspera. “This acquisition aligns with our commitment of continuous improvement and innovation of digital assessments. The integration of Crossplag’s capabilities will provide our clients with more robust tools that ensure academic integrity and foster fair assessment practices.”
