Using the SafeAssign DirectSubmit Feature

If you would like to evaluate a student work using the Plagiarism Tools, but did not equip the SafeAssign settings on an Assignment or you received the student’s work through other tools in Blackboard, you may use the SafeAssign DirectSubmit tool. The tool is found in your course’s Control Panel, under Course Tools and SafeAssign.

Please see this video to learn how to use DirectSubmit to evaluate an uploaded document or copied and pasted text.
