Dear get a lower similarity report. In addition

Dear Lyddia

I would like some clarification on the similarity report
from Turnitin. Turnitin is a tool to identify potential areas of plagiarism. It
is not a plagiarism checker, according to Turnitin themselves. “The matching
text found is not an assessment of whether work has or has not been
plagiarized. Originality Reports can help tutors to locate potential sources of
plagiarism. The decision to deem any work plagiarized should be made only after
careful examination of both the submitted paper and the suspect sources”

It is extremely likely we will have similar sentences. Furthermore just writing
our laureates name, Elinor Ostrom, would count towards the similarity rate and
any team who fails to continuously reference her would get a lower similarity
report. In addition any quotes put in the text will obviously also count
towards the similarity report. The title page will also count towards this
percentage as every team has a nearly identical title page, as well as common phrasing
will be counted. We have received no indication that these factors are
accounted for.

Furthermore one can have a 5% similarity rating and still
have plagiarized their paper. They could have a block of text accounting for
the 5% similarity. Whilst a paper with a 20% similarity rating has over 40
sources with
