Frequently asked questions

Where are my assignment grades?


You can review the grades and feedback on the My Grades area in a course or by choosing Grades before going into a course to see all your grades. You can also access the assignment's Review Submission History page and review the grade and feedback in context. Assignments aren't graded automatically. Your lecturer must grade each assignment.




Where are my grades?


You can see grades for all of your courses or one course at a time. To view grades for all of your courses, from the home page of blackboard choose Grades, this will list all your grades from all your courses. To view individual courses grades access the course from the course list and then select My Grades in the menu and you will able to view grades for only tests and assignments you have taken in that course. Anything that has not yet been graded will have a "needs marking" icon.




How can I see my feedback on an assignment?


To review your grade and feedback, select the same link in your course you used to submit your assignment. The Review Submission History page appears. If you uploaded a file, it automatically opens in the browser if inline viewing is on. Many file types open in the viewer, but your instructor can annotate only DOC, DOCX, PPT, PPTX, and PDF files. Original formatting and embedded images are preserved. The inline viewer is supported on current versions of Firefox, Chrome, and Safari.




How are tests graded?


The majority of questions in tests are auto-graded. Your lecturer defines the correct answers and assigns points to each question. The system validates your answers and assigns the score. Essay, File Response, and Short Answer questions aren't auto-graded. Your instructor must manually grade these question types. Grades for tests with these question types are released after your instructor finishes grading and allows it. You may see your score immediately after you complete the test if all questions are auto-graded and your lecturer releases this information. Your lecturer may choose a date in the future to release test scores while your classmates to take the test. After you complete a test, the performance results you receive depend on the options selected by your lecturer. For example, your lecturer may only show the final score for one test, while for another test the final score and correct answers are displayed. Feedback includes one or more of these items:

  • Final score for the test
  • Answers submitted
  • Correct answers
  • Feedback for the questions
To access feedback and grade information, select the test in the content area or My Grades. On the View Attempts page, select the grade link in the Calculated Grade column to access the test, your answers, and any feedback.
