Question: How to interpret the Originality Report?
Advice: The color of the report icon indicates the overall similarity index of the paper, based on the amount of matching or similar text that was uncovered. The percentage range is 0% to 100% The possible similarity indices are:
  • blue - no matching text
  • green - one word to 24% matching text
  • yellow - 25-49% matching text
  • orange - 50-74% matching text
  • red -75-100% matching text

These indices do not reflect Turnitin’s assessment of whether a paper has or has not been plagiarised. It is only an indication! Lecturers shall not mark/grade the assignment based on the similarity score. Originality Reports are simply a tool to help an lecturer and student find sources that contain text similar to submitted papers. The decision to deem any work plagiarised must be made carefully, and only after in depth examination of both the submitted paper and suspect sources in accordance with the standards of the class and institution where the paper was submitted. (Source: Turnitin Instructor Manual, pp.43-44)
