Resources and Considerations for Originality Reports

How to turn on Originality Reports - Google's resource for teachers

School Matches - Submitted work is automatically added to the repository when in-school matches have been turned on. The best practice is to assign one or more Content Managers to the Shared Drive repository to add/remove files when needed. Non-Google filetypes, such as .pdf and .docx, can be added to the repository as well.
