What is SafeAssign and how do I use it?

SafeAssign is a tool used to generate originality reports (i.e., detect plagiarism) on written documents submitted by students through Bb Learn assignments.

You can now use SafeAssign to check for plagiarism in any of your assignments by:

1. Creating an Assignment
2. On the Create Assignment page, expand Submission Details.
. Select Check submissions for plagiarism using SafeAssign.
4. Optionally, select one or both options:
a. Allow students to view the SafeAssign originality reports on their submissions.
b. Exclude all student submissions for this assignment from the institutional or global reference databases. (This will act as a "draft" submission)
5. Complete the Create Assignment page.
6. Click Submit.

Submissions will be checked against online databases, archives and other sources of material to ensure that they are original. Instructors can also allow students to self-check their work to become more aware of proper citation of references before submitting it for a grade.
