Similarity Index

The Originality Report shows a percentage and a corresponding color indicating on an index where this percentage falls in terms of matching content. The higher the percentage, the greater the amount of text in the submission that came up as matching against information in Turnitin's repositories.

The color of the report icon is linked to one of 5 tiers of the Similarity Index:

Blue (no matching words)
Green (One matching word - 24% similarity index)
Yellow (25-49% similarity index)
Orange (50-74% similarity index)
Red (75-100% similarity index)
