(2002), making decisions is an important skill one uses in everyday life and in business. Making good decisions is an effective tool to have when managing a company. When one makes good decisions there are fewer problems to deal with later. The ability to make simple and complex decisions helps individuals to move through life while avoiding possible problems in the future (De Janasz, Dowd, & Schneider,? 2002).ReferencesDe Janasz, S.C., Dowd, K.

: McGraw-Hill.When I submitted my paper I ran it through WritePoint and the Plagiarism Checker. I found that I had made some grammatical errors in my paraphrased material so I changed it. The result is a better sounding piece of work that has been downloaded and copied above in APA format. I am amazed at the accuracy of WritePoint and the value that it gives me as a student.
It makes my educational papers sound and flow better. This will help me to obtain a better grade on my assignments. As for the turn it in report it came up as 15%: According to De Janasz, Dowd, and Schneider (2002), making was 10% and came form http://jishkaha.com. The other 5 %? was (De Janasz, Dowd, & Schneider, 2002) and came form http://www.bignerds.com But none of it was plagiarized because it was correctly cited. I liked the fact that it shows you the percentage of plagiarized material along with the source.
If you have the correct source it can help you cite properly. This also shows the parts of your paper that need to be changed before you turn in your paper. This will help you stay away from plagiarism. That is the point of this workshop.
