Blackboard Maintenance December 19, 2013 (After Law school exams)

On December 19, 2013 Blackboard will be down for maintenance from 8:00am-6:00pm. During this time the software will be updated to version 9.1 SP14. Most of the changes in this version are internal changes not visible to the end user with the following important exceptions:

For students the default view for “My Grades” is changed so the grades are sorted by class. Instructor feedback will also be shown along with your grades. For more information see: https://help.blackboard.com/en-us/Learn/9.1_SP_14_and_SP_15/Student/010_Whats_New/000_SP_14_New_Features/My_Grades_Update

For instructors there are some changes in the Grade Center. Grading schemas can now be set higher than 100%, the points possible on tests can manually overridden, and for tests and quizzes with multiple attempts you can change how the attempts are scored when you deploy the test instead of having to go to the grade center to make the change.
