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.
By default, the Total column is the External Grade column, but you can set a different column, and should if using weighted totals. It is important that the external grade is set correctly because it is shared with your student and other University personnel (e.g. advisors, academic coaches, etc.) as the student’s final grade for the course.
The transfer process is straightforward. In essence, you simply indicate in Blackboard which grade column you want to transfer, tell Blackboard to extract those grades, then go to UAConnect, select grades as usual, and use the big yellow button plainly marked “Upload from Bb” to complete the transfer. If any grades were not successfully transferred, UAConnect will tell you. Just enter them manually in the usual way. The final step – using “submitted” and “save” – is the same as always.
Different grading schemes sometimes call for different uses of columns in Blackboard. Total calculated columns can be useful in averaging all columns in your Grade Center or just a selected group of columns or categories.
Different grading schemes sometimes call for different uses of columns in Blackboard. Average calculated columns can be useful in averaging a group of columns which each have the same number of points possible. This is done by adding the total number of points and dividing that number by the number of columns.
Instructors can work on the Grade Center using Excel, however for the best results it is important to first download the Grade Center from Blackboard. This ensures that the file will be properly formatted when it is uploaded back into Blackboard for students to view. Any new columns created in Excel will have to be made numeric after uploading the file to Blackboard.
Once you download your Grade Center, you can work on your Blackboard Grade Center on your computer and upload the edited spreadsheet back into Blackboard to allow students to see their current grades.
