SafeAssign is a tool that will compare the text of a document against other known sources. For students, it can be a useful tool in learning the importance of properly attributing the work done by others to the original authors. For faculty, it can help identify possible plagiarism in homework assignments.
SafeAssign is an alternative to the regular assignment function. To use it you must select the SafeAssign option from the Course Tools menu in the Bb Control Panel. You can not convert a "regular" or previous assignment to a SafeAssignment.
