Are you tired of dealing with plagiarism? Looking for a tool to help you and your students? Safe Assign is a tool in Blackboard that identifies unoriginal content in a paper by comparing the submission to a comprehensive database. Safe Assign provides an Originality Report with the results including specific sources where the match is suspected. The files accepted included docx, dox, rtf, ppt, pptx, txt, pdf and html.
Instructors can take advantage of the Direct Submission feature and submit a paper you have or copy and paste text you believe to be suspicious. Furthermore, faculty can use Safe Assign to manage plagiarism by helping students detect text that needs to be quoted.
If your students need additional support, the Triton College Library offers plagiarism and citation workshops! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a workshop for your class or encourage your students to attend one of the library’s Master Midterm events.
Check out these instruction on how to create a SafeAssign Assignment and how to read the Originality Report.
