Grade Center

(See how to back up the grade center here.)

The Grade Center is a dynamic tool that interconnects with other tools in Blackboard such as tests and assignments. It exports and imports information to and from Excel, allows instructors to manually enter grades, supports methods for weighing grades, distributes grades to students with the "My Grades" link on the Course Menu, and facilitates communication with students about their progress.

Because the Grade Center is a fairly complex set of features and demands the highest level of accuracy, the CTL provides workshops every semester that focus solely on the Grade Center (see our Events Calendar) and can work with you one-on-one at the Doctor Is In program.

Here are support materials and instructional video links related to the Grade Center
