Practice with Paraphrasing with SafeAssign

I often use SafeAssign, a tool our university has to detect plagiarism in student papers. I use this as a learning tool in the classroom allowing my students to see how close their paraphrases are to the original quote. For practice, I give them a set of quotations from online sources and have them paraphrase one. Then, the student can see the originality report, highlighting which parts are too similar to the original.
