Similarity % not correct

I had students submit an assignment earlier today.  Many of the assignments are showing 0% similarity even though there is a fair amount of overlap in the wording kids typically use on this assignment.  Many kids rewrote the discussion questions they were answering and even those didn't get flagged even though they are exactly the same from one student to the next.  I've used turnitin for years and haven't seen an issue like this before.  Anyone having similar issues?

  • Bill, did you exclude small matches? Did you select to have the report generate "Immediately (can overwrite reports until due date). "?  That option will check the papers against each other on the due date. If it's set to take the first report they may not be checked against each other.
