AI Detection Note

Some educators don't support the use of AI writing detectors. Be aware of the flaws in these tools if and when you use them.

AI detectors can result in both false negatives and false positives, which can result in tagging a student paper as written by AI when it wasn't. When introducing assignments, clearly articulate the expectations and/or boundaries of when, where, and how generative AI might be used—and, if used, how it will be documented. 

In addition, note that if a writer's native language is not English, these tools might tag their writing as written by AI. See GPT detectors are biased against non-native English writers - Weixin Liang, et al.
