Once you have given an assignment using the assignment tool in Blackboard you will need to grade the assignment. To grade or view assignment submissions, log on to Blackboard, enter your course and click on Control Panel in the lower left of the screen.
Now that you are in the Control Panel, click on GradeCenter which is located under Evaluation section.
A new screen appears. Look for the Icon Legend button the left hand side of the GradeCenter and by clicking on it you will discover the key to the gradebook. For example, the "!" (exclamation point) indicates that the assignment has been submitted but as of yet has not been graded.
To view a single assignment, locate the assignment column and click on the arrow button besides the "!" mark.
Then a pop up appears where you can click the View Grade Details to get the detailed information about the assignment.
A new screen appears and information about the student that submitted the assignment and general information about the assignment will be displayed. To see the submission, click on the Open Attempt button on the right side of the dialog box.
To view the submission, click on the file name. This file will open a dialogue box that provides you with required privileges to save it or open it without saving to your computer. After the selection click OK to continue.
Once you have viewed the submission, assign the points awarded to the student. You can also add comments to help guide the student, or attach a file for comments or any file you would like to send the student.
Instructor Notes can only be viewed by the instructor. Any files attached in the section are also only viewable by the instructor.
If you prefer to save the changes and then continue working later, click Save as Draft Button instead of Submit.
Once you have completed all the information, click on the Submit button. You can always return to the assignment and make any needed changes.
View Complete History allows to view the complete grade history of the student.
If the student needs to redo or re-submit the assignment, you will need to clear the student attempt. Otherwise you can skip this step and go directly to the next area.
After the submit button has been clicked, Blackboard will generate a confirmation that the task has been successfully completed. Click on OK button.
To view the grade details again after changing, click on the View Grade Details button besides the grade in the grade column.
When a student accesses their grades for the assignment, this is what they will see.
When the student clicks on the grade link, here for example 15.00; then the student can view the submission history.
