Whose Line is it Anyway?

After resubmitting my second critical analysis paper, I viewed the originality report and saw that my paper had a 9% overall match. The only thing that was highlighted was a quote I used from an article. It was only highlighted because the same quote was found in a different student’s paper. However, this would not be considered plagiarism because I quoted a statement from an article unaware that a student had done the same. This tool would bring concern for teachers because he/she might think we copied a student’s paper. But depending on the overall match and it’s accuracy, the student might not be accused for plagiarism.
