Grading in Blackboard Learn (How-to)

The Gradebook is where instructors can track student performance, grade assignments and assessments, change column order, set the midterm or final grade running total or weighting by categories, edit or erase a student’s attempt, and undo or change a grade.

About the Gradebook

Setup the Gradebook

Add Items to the Gradebook

Gradebook items are regularly created by designing student activities within Learn.  Each student activity, if created as a gradable item, will create an associated gradebook column tying the activity and the grading column together.
