All cases must be submitted through Turnitin.com. If you have a score in excess of 20%, then you must make revisions to the document. The primary reasons that a score greater than 20% will be deemed acceptable is that isolated words have been included in the score and properly cited materials have been included in the score. If you submit an assignment with a score in excess of 20%, then a grade of zero will be recorded for the assignment.
