About Safe Assign

Safe Assign -- Plagiarism Check

Instructors can use the SafeAssign service to check submitted assignments for plagiarism potential. SafeAssign compares your submitted assignments against a set of academic papers to identify areas of overlap between the submitted assignment and existing works.

SafeAssign is based on a unique text matching algorithm capable of detecting exact and inexact matching between a paper and source material. Assignments are compared against several different databases containing millions of articles dating from the 1990s to the present. After the comparison, a report is generated that provides detailed information about the matches found.

Your instructor is using SafeAssign if you see a SafeAssign statement and a list of supported file types on the submission page.

Assignments may be found in any content area.  You will use the Assignment tool to submit your written work directly to your instructor.  
Please NOTE:  SafeAssign (Plagiarism Checking) is now a feature of Bb Assignments.  Your instructor will have turned on the SafeAssign tool, if needed for this assignment.
