Assignments Using SafeAssign

Summary


This document explains how to make assignments that use SafeAssign

SafeAssign compares submitted assignments against a set of academic papers to identify areas of overlap between the submitted assignment and existing works.  Any assignment can use this feature.

Steps to Complete

  • Click your Assignment Announcement
    OR
    Click the Content area where your instructor has the assignment posted in your course menu
  • Click the Assignment link
  • Follow Assignment Instructions
  • Optional: Attach an Assignment File
    • Click Attach File (YOU MUST COMPLETE THIS STEP or YOUR PROFESSOR WILL NOT RECEIVE YOUR FILE)
    • WARNING: Do not use extended characters (!, @, #, $, etc.) or blank spaces in your file name. Limit file names to fewer than 12 characters
  • Optional: Check the Global Reference Database option to upload your paper
    • Checking this box submits a copy of your paper to the Global Database and allows your paper to be compared with those from other institutions
  • Click Submit and wait for the confirmation – there may be a slight delay
