Turnitin is software that the university subscribes to that detects potential plagiarism. It will generate a “similarity” score that indicates the percentage of the student’s paper that matches the vast content in Turnitin’s database. Your professor can add a dropbox in Pilot for this tool so that you can use it.
In your notes, always mark someone else's words with a big Q, for quote, or use big quotation marks
