Instructors can submit student papers directly to SafeAssign by using the DirectSubmit feature. SafeAssign will provide a report. Students will not see the report unless the instructor shows them.

  1. Go to the Control Panel and choose the Course Tools section. Choose Safe Assign.
  2. Choose DirectSubmit.

  3. Choose Submit a Paper.

  4. Select submission options. Most instructors choose to submit as draft so that the paper is not added to the Institutional Search Database without the students knowledge. You may also choose to upload a file or paste in the text. Click Submit.

  5. After submitting, the SafeAssign report and percentage of matching text will display. There may be a waiting period between when the paper is submitted and when the report is avialable. Instructors can come back to this area any time to view the report later.
