About Blackboard SafeAssign

SafeAssign is a plagiarism prevention tool that detects unoriginal content in students' papers by identifying areas of overlap between submitted assignments and existing works.  SafeAssign can also be used to help students identify how to properly attribute sources rather than paraphrase without giving credit to the original source.  The SafeAssign feature is effective as both a deterrent and an educational tool.
