Information on normal SafeAssign response time.
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.
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.
