How long does it take to receive a SafeAssign report?
The SafeAssignment service is run and hosted by the Blackboard company, and not by the UIC Blackboard learning management system (LMS). While the UIC Blackboard LMS provides a seamless interface to students and instructors for submitting documents for plagiarism analysis, the actual SafeAssign plagiarism analysis is run off-campus, by Blackboard Inc. servers.
Typically the SafeAssign service returns SafeAssign originality (SA) reports within a few minutes. However, during busy periods of a semester, it may take several hours for links to the SA reports to appear on Blackboard course sites because of the larger number of reports being requested.
