Grade Center - Students aren't getting credit in the grade center for an assignment even though it's marked as 'complete'

Students aren't getting credit in the grade center for an assignment even though it's marked as "complete".

A column in the grade center can be set to display as "complete" (checkmark) or "incomplete".  Blackboard treats null data (which normally is displayed with a hyphen) as incomplete, and any score at all, even 0, as complete.  So it's likely that your students have a score of 0 in the cells marked "complete".

You can create a column for this assessment in the grade center by using "Create Column" (at the top of the grade center window). You'll have specify a column name and maximum number of points ("points possible").  You can add grades in many ways.  The easiest is to click on the "-" in a particular row and type the student's grade (as a number less than or equal to the points possible, or as a percentage or letter grade if you've changed the column display format).

Grade Center - How do I drop the lowest grade in a set

How do I drop the lowest grade in a set?

Put all of the items in the set into a grade category. For example, if there are 5 in-class quizzes, create a category "quizzes" (using Manage > Categories) and assign the 5 grade center columns to that category. If you've already created the columns, you can add them to the category using "Edit Column Information" on the menu in the column header.
