Brightspace Migration: Assignments

Check to see if Blackboard assignments made with the Assignment Tool moved over to Brightspace

  1. On the top navigation bar, select Course Tools > Assignments.
  2. Scroll through the listed assignments to ensure you see all the assignments you are expecting to see.
  3. If something is missing, identify which Content Area the assignment was placed within Blackboard, and then look in the Brightspace Table of Contents (under Content & Activities) for the corresponding module.

After verifying that all assignments are there, follow these steps:

We recommend checking each assignment to be sure all settings have been maintained. You can edit them separately or in bulk.

Bulk editing primary information for multiple assignments:

  1. Check the box at the top of the left column to select all.
  2. Click the Bulk Edit icon just above the assignment list.
  3. On the Bulk Edit Assignments page, you can edit assignment titles, categories, availability dates, and due dates. If you want to change other details, such as descriptions or point values, follow the single assignment directions below.

Editing a single assignment:

  1. Select the drop-down menu to the right of the assignment title, then select Edit Assignment.
  2. In the Assignment Title field, verify/adjust the name of the assignment as necessary.
  3. In the Grade Out Of field, verify that the points match your expectations. Revise as necessary.
  4. Next, you should see a key icon and the words In Grade Book. This lets you know that this assignment is tied successfully to the gradebook. If you instead see the words Not in Grade Book, verify that you have added a point value to the assignment, select the drop-down menu next to Not in Grade Book and select In Grade Book.
  5. In the Due Date field, adjust the date and time as necessary.
  6. In the instructions, verify and adjust as necessary.
  7. Below the Instructions field, there are some additional options (icons) you can utilize if desired. Hover your mouse over each icon, and you’ll see the options. You can also record audio or video instructions using the Record Audio and Record Video buttons.

Deleting Assignments:

  1. Delete a single assignment: Click the drop-down menu to the right of the assignment and select Delete Assignment.
  2. Delete multiple assignments: Check the boxes to the left of each assignment, click the More Actions button, and select Delete.
  3. Delete assignment(s) from the Grade Book: If the assignment is connected to the Grade Book, you will need to delete that Grade Item (column). Go to Grades & Feedback > Grades and click Manage Grades. While in Manage Grades, check the box to the left of the Grade Item(s) you want to delete. Then, click More Options and select Delete.
  4. Delete an assignment from a module in Content & Activities: If you’ve placed the assignment in a module (what would have been a Folder/Content Area in Blackboard) you need to delete the link to the assignment there as well.
