Safe Assign is a free program for students to check their papers for plagiarism. Students can submit papers and within 24 hours, they learn what materials are plagiarized. Through this process they learn what plagiarism is, how they can correctly reference works, and make them aware that plagiarism is not acceptable.
By using the electronic tool, Safe Assign you can concentrate more on evaluating what your students know, not what some Internet author knows. No more Plagiarism Police for you. Through this submission process students use this tool to learn what plagiarism is and how to correctly reference works. The tool makes them aware that plagiarism cannot be hidden. It is a winning process for all.
In order to incorporate Safe Assign in your writing assignments you will need to:
- Require students submit papers to Safe Assign before they submit the paper to you, save their comments and turn them with their final paper. If you are using Smart Thinking also (wise choice) then ask them to submit that before they submit the paper there.
- Encourage students to submit their paper more than once until they are sure the paper is the professional standard they want to achieve, especially if they are adding more materials on to an additional draft.
- Notify students that submissions must be done with enough time to make their edits before they submit the paper to you. The deadline will not be changed if they neglected to accomplish this task to meet the deadline.

The next page, Smart Thinking, gives you information about a free editorial program students can use to submit papers for editorial comments. When you combine these two programs, you can spend more time on evaluating their content and students spend more time learning the process required for professional papers.
