What is Grade Center?
Grade Center allows you to set up a gradebook for your course, view scores for activities Blackboard automatically grades, and enter scores. You can also give feedback on manually graded activities. It functions like a spreadsheet in which each graded activity has its own column and students are listed in rows.
When you create an assignment or exam/quiz in Blackboard, the system automatically adds a column for its grade item in Grade Center. For discussions, you have the option to create a grade column in a forum’s settings. In addition, you can create grade items manually within Grade Center.
