Looking for specific plant

Need your help,
About 12 years ago someone gave me a thick/green leaf and instructed me to 1) score the back of the leaf with my fingernail and 2)place the leaf in a glass of water until roots started. The roots started growing from the fleshy/underpart of the leaf, not necessarily near the crown.
I thought she said it was a Jade plant, yet I can't find any mention through Google on scoring the fleshy part of the leaf to start root growth...
Any ideas?

Thanks for the quick response, but I am not sure you understand my needs.
The site you suggested, similar to most of the other sites I have already Googled, here states: "Jade leaves can also be used to create a clone, but this method will take much longer before you have a specimen size plant. Leaves will take only a few days to callous, after which you simply insert the base of the leaf slightly into lightly moistened potting soil or rooting medium. It may take a month or longer for the cutting to root and the plantlet to start growing from the base of the leaf. Gradually increase the watering as the plant grows until it has reached a size suitable for repotting."
The site does not mention scoring the underside of the leaf, nor does itt suggest leaving the plant in water to promote root growth.
I am hoping someone can verify that the plant leaf I was given was from a Jade plant, or that it was a different plant for which they can then tell me what it was.
Thanks again,

Bringing this back to the top with new info:
The wife reminded me that the roots grew on the under-side at the edge of the leaf where a score was made; there wasn't any root growth in the scores themselves.
Please someone help me to identify this plant...
