  SafeAssign - Plagiarism Prevention Service from Blackboard

SafeAssign is a new tool available from Blackboard Learning System to prevent and detect plagiarism and it is now available within any Blackboard course. It's a service similar to Turnitin, but independent. Teachers may choose which tool they prefer to use.


Using Safe Assign, students submit their work (in English) inside the course and it is assessed for possible plagiarism against:

1. The internet.
2. Proquest/ABI Inform, a database of articles from the 1990s to today, updated weekly.
3. Institutional database, all papers submitted to SafeAssign by users in their respective institutions.
4. Global Reference Database, to which students can voluntarily submit their work. All submissions to this database will be included in future checks for plagiarism.


After students submit their work, SafeAssign generates a report identifying similar text in other sources.

  For instructions about using SafeAssign, please refer to this page.
