Create a SafeAssignment


An assignment needs to utilize the SafeAssign feature.



  • Blackboard



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

For more information about using SafeAssign, please see the Blackboard Help article.



On the Create Assignment page:

  1. Expand Submission Details.
  2. Select Check submissions for plagiarism using SafeAssign.
  3. Optionally, select one or both options:
    • Allow students to view the SafeAssign originality reports on their submissions.
    • Exclude all student submissions for this assignment from the institutional or global reference databases.
  4. Complete the Create Assignment page.
  5. Select Submit.

When you create a SafeAssignment, a grade column is automatically created in the Grade Center. When a SafeAssignment is ready for grading, the Needs Grading icon appears in the Grade Center cell. Grade SafeAssignments from the Grade Center or access them from the Needs Grading page.
