2. Check the box next to the class(es) you'd like to assign the activity and click 'Next'.

❗ Note: Originality Check cannot be enabled when using the 'Assign to Me' option.

3. Check the box next to 'Enable Originality Check' and then click 'Assign'. Now your students can check for plagiarism in their own work.

You can also adjust the assignment settings after assigning to enable or disable Originality Check using these directions.
