Submission Guidelines
Your submission document should be a single word or pdf document containing your report.
All submissions are to be submitted through the safeAssign facility in Blackboard. Submission
boxes linked to SafeAssign will be set up in the Units Blackboard Shell. Assignments not submitted
through these submission links will not be considered.
Submissions must be made by the due date and time (which will be in the session detailed above)
and determined by your Unit coordinator. Submissions made after the due date and time will be
penalized per day late (including weekend days) according to Holmes Institute policies.
The SafeAssign similarity score will be used in determining the level, if any, of plagiarism.
SafeAssign will check conference web-sites, Journal articles, the Web and your own class
members submissions for plagiarism. You can see your SafeAssign similarity score (or match)
when you submit your assignment to the appropriate drop-box. If this is a concern you will have a
chance to change your assignment and resubmit. However, resubmission is only allowed prior to the
submission due date and time. After the due date and time have elapsed your assignment will be
graded as late. Submitted assignments that indicate a high level of plagiarism will be penalized
according to the Holmes Academic Misconduct policy, there will be no exceptions. Thus, plan
early and submit early to take advantage of the resubmission feature. You can make multiple
submissions, but please remember we only see the last submission, and the date and time you
submitted will be taken from that submission.
