SafeAssign is a tool within Blackboard used to prevent plagiarism and to create opportunities to help students identify how to properly attribute sources rather than paraphrase. SafeAssign compares submitted assignments against a set of sources to identify areas of overlap between the submitted assignment and existing works. Some instructors at LFCC choose to use SafeAssign to help them assess student work. If it is used, SafeAssign is only a part of the instructor's evaluation of student work. For more specifics on how to use SafeAssign and the process that SafeAssign uses to evaluate student work, please visit the Blackboard Help page about SafeAssign.
