With multiple assessment you may find the need to weight some assessments differently. To do this you first need to log on to Blackboard, enter your course, and click on Grade Center under Evaluation in the lower left of the screen.
On the Grade Center screen, click on the Create Calculated Column and select Weighted Column.
Enter a Column Name and a short Description. Change the display format if you need.
Use the arrows in the middle to select the columns and categories.
Once you made the selection, the columns and categories will be shown in the Selected Columns, and you need to entere the weight for each item. Percentages should add up to 100 percent.
Set the Options.
Click on the Submit button to finish.
