How to check an assignment for AI %

My teacher didn’t mark my assignment because it appears that I’ve used AI. I don’t remember using AI and even if I do I don’t copy and paste I read through and cherry pick information.

How can I check my assignment for the AI % for free and maybe even see which part of it contains AI?

You can do it for free on a plagiarism checker website but I would probably get Turnitin so you can see what your teacher sees.

If you do copy something, make sure that you reference your sources.

"Reading through and cherry picking information" is still using AI to generate material for your assignment. Under most uni (and probably school) policies I'm aware of your work shouldn't incorporate any material generated by AI.

Generally the only situation I've seen it advised for use in academic contexts is for generating an essay structure/plan - but you still have to do the actual writing for that. Also I'd note that the plans they generate are rather middling because by it's fundamental design AI tends to mediocrity - it generates the average of all averages. So an essay plan generated by AI isn't going to be a very good one, just a mediocre one.

The only other situation where I've seen using AI as potentially useful is for generating random sentences in English for the student to practice translating into a target language for language work (but not for using to generate material to submit for an assignment, only for practice). As this provides material to practice on but avoids the potential unconscious bias of the student to emphasise material they already know well (and miss out on practicing vocab/grammar they are less confident in).
