Purdue subscribes to the SafeAssign software which functions in a manner similar to the TurnItIn software that was used in the past. SafeAssign allows a professor to determine whether all or part of a paper is plagiarized. There are two ways you can use SafeAssign. It can be used either through Blackboard, by setting up a SafeAssign Assignment, or you can use the Direct Submit procedure.
