Safe Assignment is an anti-plagiarism service built into the Blackboard course management system. If you create an assignment as a "Safe Assignment", students' work will be submitted to the service to check for suspected plagiarized content. The SafeAssign server produces an "originality report" which indicates how much of the submitted work appears to have been copied from other sources. The SafeAssign server checks work against an internal database (CFCC), against a global database (works submitted by students at other institutions using SafeAssign), and against other Web-based resources.
