Blackboard now has Grade Display Standardization. This standardizes the decimal places in the grade center to ensure more accurate grade reporting.
Sometimes we need to double check that we assigned a due date for an assignment, gave the correct point values for a quiz, or even that all of our categories are correct for grade calculations. If we have many columns in the grade center this is sometimes difficult to view quickly. One way to see the full grade center and all of the columns, point values, categories, and due dates is to go into “Column Organization.”
By default, the Grade Center in Blackboard sorts alphabetically by last name. But did you know that you can also easily sort by any of the grade center columns? For instance, if you want to sort by “Exam 1” grades you can sort numerically by the “Exam 1” column! (This is especially useful when manually entering ‘0’s.)

It can be useful for Faculty to divide combined courses into separate sections in the Grade Center.
At times it may be necessary to allow a student another chance at an assignment or to hide one of their previous attempts at an assignment. This is a simple task using the Grade Details Page.
When grading an assignment that involves videos submitted by students you can view the video for grading by following these steps.
Faculty can import exam grades from scantrons into a Blackboard Learn course.
Creating and deleting multiple Grade Columns in the Grade Center can be a time consuming process. The “Batch Create Grade Columns‟ and “Batch Delete Grade Columns‟ tools make it much quicker and easier to add or remove Grade Columns.
The External Grade marker in the grade center will push the contents of one column to the Home Screen’s Report card module when the students log into Blackboard Learn. There is no way to remove the External Grade, because there has to be at least one column in the grade book designated for an external grade.
