Blackboard Assignments Interface Changes and Additions
Some settings have been reorganized and new options have been added. Additionally, instructors can enable SafeAssign via Assignments or require students to attach a Blackboard Portfolio to the assignment.
Instructors can click each link in the Grading section to expand that section and choose more settings.
When instructors click each link in the Grading section on the Create Assignment page, these options appear:
- Submission Details: Assignment Type information (Individual, Group, and Portfolio)
Learn more about SafeAssignments
Note: The Portfolio Submission option is new - SafeAssign cannot be used with Portfolio Submission
Learn more about Portfolios
- Grading Options: Allow instructors to manage Anonymous Grading and the new Delegated Grading options
Learn more about Anonymous & Delegated Grading
- Grading Options: (Display grade as, Include in Grade Center grading calculations, Show to Students in My Grades, Show Statistics)
These Grading Options are the same options which were previously available in Assignments - only the position and some of the wording has changed.
