Grades for All courses

On the Blackboard dasbboard in the list on the left where your name appears, select the Grades heading.  Your grades are organized by course name and term in alphabetical order. You can select most items in any course to view details.

Want to dive in and focus on one course? Select a course name to go to that course’s grades page. You may have two types of courses.

If your instructor has set up the overall grade, select the grade pill next to the name of your course to open a panel with more information.

Grades inside a course

  • In a course, you can access your Course Grades page on the navigation bar. Select the Gradebook icon to view the grades that your instructor posted.
  • Your Overall Grade calculates your performance to date. Select the grade pill to learn more about how your overall grade is calculated. Your instructor may choose not to add an overall grade.
  • For each item, you can view the status and how many attempts you have. View which attempts you’ve started, submitted before the due date, and if any submissions are or will be late. After the due date passes, submission info appears in red.

    If you’re allowed only one attempt and submit before the due date, you won’t see the second line of text for the item.

  • Select an item to open the Details & Information panel and view your current grade and how it was calculated. You can also view how many attempts you have and if any submissions are or will be late.
  • If the due date has passed, you’re informed the next attempt will be marked late.
  • Select the grade pill to access your submission. If you made multiple submissions, the Submission panel opens. If your instructor annotated a file you uploaded as your submission, you can view the annotations inline.

After the due date passes, you may see zeros for work you haven’t submitted. You can still submit attempts to update your grade. Your instructor determines grade penalties for late work.

View Attempts and Feedback

In the Submission panel, you can see which attempts have grades and feedback. Select the attempt you want to view. Your submission opens, and you can view your grade and how it was calculated. You can review your work and expand the Feedback panel if your instructor left comments.

If your instructor left feedback for multiple attempts, you can read each attempt’s feedback. A message appears if your instructor has overridden the item’s final grade.

You can also see how many attempts you have on the Course Grades page. You can see which attempts you submitted before the due date and if any submissions are or will be late.

If your instructor needs to grade questions in your assessment, Not graded appears in the Grading section.

Your instructor may choose not to reveal the correct answers to automatically scored questions until all students have submitted. A banner appears at the top of the assessment with this information. Check back later to see if answers have been revealed.
