SafeAssign

SafeAssign is a plagiarism detection and prevention tool used by students and faculty to assist with academic integrity. Instructors may choose to activate SafeAssign on some written assignments within Blackboard. If SafeAssign is available for an assignment, students simply submit their work and then review their originality report.

 

This tool can be set by faculty so that students can submit a draft of their assignment prior to the due date allowing students to check their own work before officially submitting the assignment. 

NOTE: If you allow students to submit a draft of an assignment prior to final submission, faculty must remove any submitted drafts by clearing the attempt so students can upload their final paper.

Activating SafeAssign

Faculty can activate SafeAssign on specific written assignments.

Clearing the Attempt

If you faculty allow students to submit a draft of an assignment prior to the final submission, faculty must remove drafts by clearing the attempt so students can upload their final paper.
