SafeAssign plagiarism check as an option in any assignment

The Blackboard plagiarism checking tool, SafeAssign is available as an option on any Assignment. Just click the Submission Details heading,


then check the box labelled Check submissions for plagiarism using SafeAssign to enable SafeAssign plagiarism checking on the assignment.


As the name would indicate, checking the Allow students to view SafeAssign originality report for their attempts makes the originality report available to students.

By default, all student submissions are added to an institutional database. This database is one of the sources student work is compared to when the plagiarism check is performed. If you do not want student submissions included in the database — if the students are submitting a draft of an assignment that will be submitted in final form later in the term, for example — click the Exclude submissions from the Institutional and Global References Databases checkbox.
