|Make the Assessment Available||Select whether or not ("yes" or "no") you want the assignment to be available to students. If you select "yes", you can also specify display dates.|
|Track Number of Views||Select this checkbox if you want to track views of this item.|
|Availability Dates||Use the "Display After" option to "hide" the assignment from students until a specific date and time. You must click the checkbox first, then choose the time and date after which you would like students to view the assignment. If you want to enforce a deadline for assignment submission, enter a date and time in the "Display Until" field.|
SafeAssign enables you to create a "draft" assignment so students can submit a document to be checked for "originality". If an assignment is submitted as a draft, it receives an originality report, but it is not added to the database (if it were, the final version would result in a 100% match).
Creating the assignment as a draft allows SafeAssign to be used as a teaching tool, giving the student an idea of how original his or her work is and allowing him/her to revise the document. This allows students to improve their citations and paraphrasing techniques.
However, the "originality report" can also allow students to see if a plagiarized work can elude detection.
Important: If you create the assignment as a draft, you must create a second version to allow students to submit a final document (the version that will be graded).
|Urgent Checking||This area will usually be set to "No". Most originality reports are returned within 15 to 30 mintues after submission. If you want the report returned as soon as possible, select "Yes" for Urgent Checking.|
|Student Viewable||If you use SafeAssign as a teaching tool (to identify citation and paraphrasing problems, etc.), you want students to be able to view originality reports. After you view the originality report, you can always submit the report to students.|
