This educator-focused guide aids educators in understanding how the Similarity Score can reasonably be used to inform your understanding of student writing. Educators should use this data in conjunction with other factors to determine whether the noted similarity is acceptable or not. It is important to note that similarity does not always mean plagiarism. Educators are encouraged to use Turnitin's Understanding text similarity for students video and Understanding the Similarity Report - A student guide to facilitate conversations with students.
