Removing a source from an originality report will 'recalculate' the similarity index without consideration to the removed source in question. This feature is useful when a paper has been submitted to Turnitin multiple times, and the originality report is reporting a high match (eg 100%) to the previous submission. Removing a source from an originality report provides a clearer similarity index (percentage).
Open the assignment and click on the View all submissions button
