Checking All Incoming Papers for Plagiarism - SafeAssign

Assignments with Automatic Plagiarism Detection (SafeAssign)

Blackboard’s plagiarism detection tool, called SafeAssign, is for instructors' use to discourage plagiarism in student works. To initiate an automatic plagiarism detection process for all student submissions, you simply create a regular Blackboard Assignment and activate “Plagiarism Tools” in its settings.

*SafeAssign does not provide 100% proof of plagiarism. Instructor’s investigation and judgment are required while evaluating the report.
