Grade Management

Using Blackboard to manage grades

Start here if you are not familiar with Blackboard

  • Consider posting a low-stakes Blackboard quiz for practice
    • Use multiple-choice and true/false questions at first to practice creating questions.
    • Work up to essay questions once you’re comfortable with creating auto-graded questions like multiple choice and true/false.
  • Create assignments to be turned in online:
    • Post and collect a practice assignment in Blackboard
    • SafeAssign may be used on assignments (Original & Ultra) or test essay questions (Ultra only) to determine the originality of student work.
