SafeAssign is a plagiarism prevention tool which is integrated with the FerrisConnect course management system. Students may submit written assignments within their FerrisConnect course using the SafeAssign tool and SafeAssign automatically compares the document with documents across the Internet, including Webpages, electronic reference databases, as well as institutional and global SafeAssign databases. An originality report is generated, which will provide information about any matching source material and its location.

Instructors add the SafeAssign tool to a content page or folder within their FerrisConnect course. Once the tool is added, the instructor may create assignments. As the assignments are created, columns are automatically added to the course.
