Report Overview


The generated submission report is the output from Galileo’s processing of the target files. It contains the details of all evaluated checks and flags raised in a easy to read manner.

Reports generated by Galileo are meant to be concise portable documents that can be shared amongst educators. By default, all resources needed to render the document are embedded within it.

The report used in the video is available here for your review.

At the top of the report is the quick link menu bar. It will remain present as you scroll through the report, allowing for quick navigation between sections.

Quick Link Menu Bar


The first section presented in the report is titled Overview, as it provides an at glance summary of the findings of the report as well as a breakdown of the submissions. Underneath the header is the path that was searched, as well as a timestamp of when the process was started. This information can be useful in identifying and comparing across reports which is the latest and most up to date.

Submission Summary

This sub section provides a quick list of all files that were detected when Galileo started to evaluate the target. Invalid Submissions are categorized this way when something was corrupted or invalid in the files internal structure. This can expose tampering and should be reviewed if found. Sometimes you may see that the Processed Submissions count is less than the Total Submissions count; this typically is caused by hidden or supportive files being found in the target. These files are simply ignored. Submissions which are not supported are categorized in this way as well.

Submission Summary

The Flagged Submissions list should have your attention and lets you quickly access information regarding those paticular submissions. Clicking on the file name will hop directly to the submission’s details.

Check Summary

Contained within the Check Summary section are a list of flags that have been raised during processing of submissions. The quick access buttons allow you to immediately see which submissions have raised which flags. The number on the button indicates the number of submissions who have raised that particular flag.

Check Summary

Clicking once on a button will reveal a list of submissions, and their matched comparators. Clicking the button again will close the list, or you can click another flag’s button to swap the list.

The report uses three colors to represent the severity of the information being presented. The color red, indicates a severe piece of information that requires the attention of the educator to resolve. A yellow colored indicator suggests that something is wrong but needs the clarity of a human educator to make the final decision. Grey items present information which can be useful in assisting educators with a decision.

Disabled Check Summary

In this section you can find any checks that were disabled during the processing of submissions. Sometimes, it can be useful to disable specific checks when they are not effective for your particular setup.

Disabled Check Summary

When first starting out, it is best to leave all supported checks enabled until you feel comfortable disabling specific ones.


The bulk of the report’s content is found in the Submissions section. Individual submissions are explained in greater detail and any relevant information is presented. Each submission is laid out in its own panel/card.

Submission Panel

The Submission Info contains information which is extracted from the file itself. In this table, you can see an early version of our Name Detection system. The Meta Information is information Galileo extracted from the contents of the file and used in its check based system. It is important to remember that meta information may be manipulated by students.

You can click the Download button to quickly access the file as it is a direct link to the file on your local storage device. You may also notice a subtle checkmark or cross in the top right corner of the item panel. This is a quick indicator if any flags have been raised for this item.

Much like in the Check Summary section, a list of flags raised will be present at the bottom of the item panel. Clicking these toggle buttons will further display information related to that particular check. You can find out more about a specific check by clicking the More link present to quickly access the knowledge base article on that check.


The final section in the report contains a copy of the process options used during the processing of the submissions. This is meant as a reference of how the report was generated should it be pertinent information in the future.
