Up to 5 points can be deducted for spelling/punctuation/grammar/sentence structure/references/citations issues. This assignment is being checked for similarity using Turnitin. Please do not include the above questions/instructions in your submitted assignment, as doing so will inflate your Turnitin Similarity score. Please take the subject of academic integrity seriously. Please refer to the “Academic Integrity” section of the HSA Student Expectations document, and be reminded that students must review the Turnitin report and the Similarity Index score for their written work prior to submitting for a grade. If the Turnitin Similarity Index score is greater than 15%, you are required to rewrite and revise the paper or assignment until the Turnitin Similarity Index score is 15% or less. Turnitin Similarity reports are generated very soon after assignment submission. Students can resubmit until the assignment due date. However, after three resubmissions, Turnitin Similarity reports will generate after 24 hours. Plagiarism penalties and a grade of “zero” will result if any assignment or paper is submitted with a Turnitin Similarity Index score greater than 15%, and the Turnitin report indicates that a lower score was possible. Please submit your assignment in the “Chapter 9 Assignment – Dropbox” by the due date, Sunday, October 25, 11:59 p.m. I look forward to reading your recommendations! Thank you.
