Text-matching scores of 0-25% usually represent low probabilities of plagiarism. 21% is the average SA score.
Scores over 40% almost always indicate significant plagiarism or too much quoted content.
Scores of 95-100% indicate duplicate submissions, which may or may not represent plagiarism.
A source matched by the software may not be the actual source used by the student.
Foolish instructors might misunderstand the text-matching score to be a direct plagiarism indicator, or they might overlook other clues, e.g., citing sources that aren’t available, or sudden changes in writing style
Foolish students might submit irrelevant texts, or attempt to trick the text-matching algorithm (such as by deliberately misspelling words or packing white spaces)
