You can only submit a SafeAssignment once. If you want to edit, delete, or resubmit a SafeAssignment, ask your instructor to clear your first submission. The file size limit is 10MB. If your submission is larger than 10MB, SafeAssign won't be able to process it.

  1. On the course menu, select the link where SafeAssignment is located, for example, Assignments.
  2. On the Assignments page, look for the SafeAssignment and select View/Complete.
  3. On the Upload SafeAssignment page, optionally, type your comments in the Comment box.
  4. Browse to select a file to attach as your submission.
  5. Optionally, select the Global Reference Database check box to upload your paper to the Global Reference Database.
  6. Select Submit.

    After you submit SafeAssignments, a slight delay occurs between the upload and the availability of the SafeAssign report. Results are normally available within 10-15 minutes.

Your instructor is using SafeAssign if you see Originality Report enabled in the Details & Information of your assignment.

Assignments using SafeAssign in the Ultra Course View don't require you to take any extra steps when you're ready to submit your work. SafeAssign automatically checks your work, including attachments and text responses, for matches to published materials.

When you open an assignment, you're informed if your submission is set to be graded anonymously.

ULTRA: View SafeAssignment submissions

Doesn't seem familiar? Jump to the "Original" help about viewing a SafeAssignment submission.

SafeAssign starts processing your assignment as soon as you hit Submit. While the service analyzes your work, Originality Report in progress appears on the panel. SafeAssign creates an Originality Report for each part of your assignment, including text questions and attachments.

Your instructor decides whether you can see Originality Reports for your assignment attempt.

You can view the Originality Report before your instructor grades your attempt. Open the assignment's Details & Information panel and select View Originality Report. If your instructor allowed multiple attempts, SafeAssign analyzes all of your attempts separately. You can find the Originality Report for each attempt on the Submission panel.

The Originality Report appears side-by-side with your assignment attempt. The top of the Originality Report displays the overall text matching that SafeAssign detected.
