Another call I have received are flagged similarities found in Turnitin. Turnitin is an on-line plagiarism checking service utilized by many schools to automatically detect similarities. Turnitin will generate a report for the professor showing found similarities. I have noticed that professors may not take the time to analyze the similarities, but rather just refer the student for discipline.
