Plagiarism Checker

Below is an overview of NDSU's plagiarism checker, SafeAssign.


SafeAssign, a tool within Blackboard, compares submitted assignments against a set of academic papers to identify areas of overlap between the submitted assignment and existing works. SafeAssign generates an Originality Report containing the results of the matching process which instructors can use to help determine if the content was plagiarized.
