Blackboard – Back up Grade Center

Instructors are responsible for backing up their courses.

There is no automatic archive process. Deleted data in a Bb course cannot be recovered.  All courses are deleted two years after they run.

It’s a good idea to back up your grade center regularly over the course of a term.  Further, downloading a copy of the grade center as part of the end of term checklist can help ensure you have easy access to grade information after the course is gone.

How to Download the Grade Center

  1. Go to Control Panel > Grade Center > Full Grade Center.
  2. Hover over Work Offline and select Download.
  3. Set Include Hidden Information to Yes.
  4. Click Submit.
  5. Click Download, and choose a location on your computer to save the file.
  6. Keep this protected student data in a secure location, such as OneDrive.
