Question about the History on an HTML site

I’ve noticed that using the “History” feature I can see everything the student did. But I have a couple of students that the code suddenly appears and they have very little history on their site. I’m thinking they’re copying code from somewhere and posting it in and then maybe doing a few changes.

If the code pops up like you’re describing it, they are copying from somewhere.


Like @hugoondev says, if the code suddenly appears, it is obvious they are copying.

Another tell: if the code appears from top to bottom in order, that probably indicates they are simply transcribing from a copy. Especially if, only after typing everything, they go back to fix typos, wrong capitalization, etc.

Normally people would code and jump around fixing stuff from function to function, and not get it working perfectly the first time after typing everything.
