Blackboard’s SafeAssign is a tool used to prevent plagiarism and to create opportunities to help students identify where to properly attribute sources. It is effective as both a deterrent and an educational tool by comparing submitted assignments against a set of sources to identify areas of overlap between the submitted assignment and existing works.


SafeAssign is based on a unique text-matching algorithm capable of detecting exact and inexact matching between a paper and source material. Submissions are compared against the Internet, the ProQuest ABI/Inform database, the Institutional document archives, and the Global Reference Database.
