TurnItIn is a software product that matches your work against published resources, websites, and millions of other student papers, to determine if plagiarism has occurred. Here at Lynn, it operates within LiveText, our portfolio software. 

Here are a few good sites that discuss how to interpret a TII originality report. I really like the first one - it's simple and clear, with screen shots. Basically the point is not to focus too much on the percentage that matches, as it could well be cited material that is cited correctly. The idea is to go into the report and look at each of the matching sections to determine whether cheating has occurred.
