Grade Center

Grade Center is the electronic grade book for Blackboard Course Sites.

But it is more than that. Grade Center is the centralized hub of Blackboard Assignment and Test submissions. It can be used to track student achievement simply with the use of color-coded options. It can be employed to create statistical reports, which can help faculty discern their students' strengths and weaknesses. Most importantly, it can help instructors and students alike check their grades throughout the course.

When a Blackboard Course is in full swing, Grade Center can be a bit overwhelming. Fortunately, Blackboard has addressed this in their Needs Grading feature. This new view allows instructors to filter out everything except those attempts that require instructors’ attention.
