The #1 reason students use Blackboard is to see their grades!

In "Swim Smart" you'll learn about:

  • Organizing the Grade Center columns
  • Creating Grade Center items (columns) manually
  • Working with the Grade Center columns created manually or automatically
  • Making Total columns calculate correctly
  • Viewing the Gradebook as your Students see it! (My Grades)
  • Some common "gotchas" instructors encounter using the Grade Center

Be prepared to face the Grade Center without fear!
