So many times, we stick with what we’ve always done, when there might be new and better ways to do the same thing. You might even find that these new ways actually save you time and effort! Did you know that you can do your quizzes and exams online in Blackboard instead of using a scantron or bluebook? There are lots of ways to customize your assessments and cut down on academic dishonesty using these tools.

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.
