Segment 5: Receiving and grading electronically-submitted Assignments
Segment 6: Grade comments, installing a My Grades button, downloading grades
Much of what an instructor does in the GradeCenter is for the benefit of students. Before starting this tutorial
click here to download a screen shot of what students see at their My Grades
menu button. This is how each student
sees their own grades and your feedback to them in their My Grades button.
Training for the Blackboard version 8 GradeCenter is divided into two parts:
Tutorial BB2 forms GradeCenter Pt. 1, covering the use of the GradeCenter to post grades and feedback to students, which becomes visible
at their My Grades button. An understanding of this is necessary to make use of formal (electronically-submitted)
Assignments, the graded Discussion Board, and automatically-graded interactive exercises with feedback. Each of these
functions places columns in the grade sheet in the GradeCenter.
Tutorial BB6 provides GradeCenter Pt. 2. BB6 covers how to use the GradeCenter with Total and Weighted Total
formulas to have the GradeCenter compute course grades. These functions are not necessary in order to use
formal Assignments, the graded Discussion Board, and interactive exercises, or manually-entered grade columns.
