Navigating the Turnitin Feedback Studio: Some Exceptional Cases – We understand that many of our users rely on our plagiarism checking services to ensure the originality and integrity of their work. However, we want to make you aware of some important factors that may affect the plagiarism value reported by our system:
1. Fluctuating Plagiarism Values
The plagiarism value for a document may change when you add or remove content. This is a normal occurrence as the similarity check is based on the specific content within your document.

The plagiarism value can also change when the content is altered. Sometimes, a previously unproblematic paragraph may become flagged as plagiarized, or vice versa, due to the algorithms used in the similarity check process.
