With the recent update of Blackboard, one of the major changes to the system is the location of SafeAssign. Rather than being its own item under the Assessments menu, SafeAssign is now integrated with the Assignments item. To enable SafeAssign for an assignment:

1. From a Content area, select Assessments…Assignment.

2. On the Create Assignment page, under the Grading section, expand Submission Details.

Assignment Details Screen





3. Select Check submissions for plagiarism using SafeAssign.

Plagiarism Tools Screen






Optionally, select one or both checkboxes for:

  • Allow students to view the SafeAssign originality reports on their submissions.
  • Exclude all student submissions for this assignment from the institutional or global reference databases.

4. Complete the Create Assignment page.

5. Click Submit.
