This analysis examines student groups’ average similarity scores across the first five papers submitted to Turnitin Feedback Studio. 

The findings reveal that the levels of unoriginal content among students whose first submissions had high rates of similarity dropped significantly by their second paper. Students whose initial submissions did not have enough similarity (i.e., they did not include an adequate amount of quotations and/or references) seem to correct their practices by the second submission, as well. This study found that these effects are long-lasting, occur both in secondary and higher education institutions, and appear across the globe regardless of the country in which the students were studying.
