Bb Grade Center

The Bb Grade Center consists of a "Needs Grading" area and a Full Grade Center. Needs Grading provides direct links to items that need to be graded. The Full Grade Center is a spreadsheet of all grades (including items that need grading). The Full Grade Center is used to view all grades, add grades manually, change grades and weight grades; the Full Grade Center can be downloaded to your computer. Only course instructors and TAs have access to the Grade Center; students view their grades via the Tools/Communication menu area - "My Grades."
Note: Official grades are NOT entered through Blackboard. Submit your official grades in WebSIS.

Atomic Learning Grade Center Basics: AL offers a quick and useful self-paced course in the Bb Grade Center. Access the Full Course or get started with these basic tutorials: Set Grade Center View | Add Columns |Enter/Edit Scores | Manual Override

Quizzes, Tests & Exams

You can use quizzes, tests, and surveys to measure student knowledge, gauge progress, and gather information from students. Remind your students that they need to use a wired connection when they take tests. Wireless connections are more prone to network issues. The stability of the signal depends on how long and how much bandwidth students draw, similar to 4G phone data connections.
