Results of a submission to SafeAssign are returned in an
Originality Report, which shows text matches found in the
SafeAssign databases with links to possible matches.

SafeAssign does not check all possible sources and it is not a
panacea. It is up to the instructor to make the final decision as
to whether plagiarism has occurred.
