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.
Are you unable to access the scroll bar to view the entire grade center on Blackboard on your Mac? This is a common issue with the default settings on your Mac and can be remedied quickly by going to your computer’s System Preferences.
When grading an assignment that involves videos submitted by students you can view the video for grading by following these steps.
When a SafeAssignment is out of sync (usually after being copied from an older course), students are redirected to the Blackboard Learn home page after clicking the SafeAssignment.
Faculty can import exam grades from scantrons into a Blackboard Learn course.
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.
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.
