SafeAssign for plagiarism detection?

SafeAssign We are getting SafeAssign soon and I'm interested in the experience of anyone who has used it, in particular, those who have moved from Turnitin to SafeAssign. I'm particularly interested in the comparison between GradeMark and Crocodoc.

Thanks for any advice.


  1. We're in the process of piloting Turn It In and considered SafeAssign when we started the pilot 3 or 4 mind ago. At the time, it didn't integrate with blackboards online marking (with crocodile) and there was so little information available about it that we discounted it and ended up just trialing Turn It In. Now that Blackboard seems to be actually taking some interest in supporting and developing SafeAssign we will have another look as there are a couple of troubling things about TII such as the fact that the company that owns them have put it up for sale, their customer service isn't great, they have outages at critical times, and perhaps worst of all, they build up a large set of users data that users can't get back out.

    I'll be interested to hear how you get on using SafeAssign
