What file types can be submitted to SafeAssign in Blackboard Learn?
Gives a list of what files can be submitted to SafeAssign
SafeAssign only supports file types that are convertible to plain text, which includes these file types: DOCX, DOC, PPT, PPTX, PDF, TXT, ODT, RTF, HTML, and HTM. Spreadsheet files aren't supported.
SafeAssign also accepts ZIP files and processes files that match any of these file types.
SafeAssign counts and displays the total number of attachments in a submission, as well as the number of attachments processed by SafeAssign. SafeAssign only processes and creates Originality Reports for attachments that match the supported file types. For unsupported file types, the SafeAssign Originality Report omits a matching score.
Also, it is highly recommended that students and instructors name documents submitted to SafeAssignment using only alphanumeric characters, the period, the underscore and the hyphen, for example: NetID.final.paper.doc or group2.assignment3.report.pdf
In particular, using space/blank characters, quotation marks, diacritical marks, the pound sign, percent sign and any other special characters should be avoided when naming documents for SafeAssignment and for most any other Web-based/could computing application.
