Looking to Do Something New in Blackboard in Spring 2014?

The Grade Center in Blackboard is a central repository of students’ performance on learning activities. This online grading tool enables instructors to record students’ grades, track students’ work, and provide feedback to students throughout the semester. Students can access their individual’s grades through My Grades to track their own progress and receive feedback from the instructor. There are a lot of features in the Grade Center. However, some of them are underutilized. Did you know that you can…

  • Create a column in the Grade Center that will automatically convert the final grade to an equivalent letter grade?
  • Color code in-progress assignments, assignments that need grading, exempt grades, and more, to help you more efficiently use the Grade Center?
  • Create a customized version of the Grade Center based on specific students, groups, assignment types, and more?

If you are interested in learning more about the Grade Center, please contact the Office of Instructional Technology at (219) 989-2873 or MyCourses@purduecal.edu.
