Blackboard Grade Center

QUICK LINKS:   OVERVIEW  |  UPCOMING WEBINARS  |  GETTING STARTED  |  SUPPORT



Grade Center is a place in Blackboard that resembles a spreadsheet to record grades, calculate grades, submitted assignment documents, and more. It provides both basic and advance users a place to their grading activities from a central view. Plus, you are able to customize your view of the Grade Center and create grading schemas, grading periods, categories, and columns to present and gather the information you need.


Why should Faculty use Grade Center?
The Grade Center can be used to communicate and share assessment data directly with students. A reporting feature can assist Faculty to understand student progress and make informed decisions to improve performance. Plus it is secure.


Can Students access the Grade Center?
Students cannot access the Grade Center. They will access their grades and their grades only through a tool called “My Grades.” This tool does gather the individual student’s information from the Grade Center but does not give them access to the Grade Center.
