Weighting grades in Blackboard is a fairly common procedure, and can be quite simple once you become familiar with the process. It involves a combination of setting percentages in calculated grade columns and organizing your regular columns accordingly.Please see the help video below for an in-depth overview of weighting grades. You may have reached this page hoping to learn how to curve grades. This is a different process, and is covered in this help document.
First go to the “Full Grade Center” under “Grade Center” in the Control Panel. Then click the green button “Manage” and select “Smart Views.” The default Smart Views are displayed on the Smart Views main page. Click “Create Smart View.”
Ask your students to click on the "My UO" tab, then "My Grades" in the "Tools" area, then your class. They should be able to see their grade along with your feedback to them.
Comments in grade entries in the grade center are for instructor's eyes, but that "comments" attached to blog and journal posts can be seen by the same people who can see the main post. If faculty want students to view the assignment's critiques they should enter information in the "feedback to student" area.
