1. A Grade Center Gala
This session will explore the Blackboard Grade Center including column organization, grading schemas, smart views, group grading, calculating columns, and special settings. Participants will create grading rubrics and learn how to use them in all different assignments including discussion boards and SafeAssignments. We will investigate In-Line Grading (Bb 9.1.11+) including the settings and work arounds for SafeAssignments. There will be an open discussion and an exchange of best practices and ideas for using this intricate and important Blackboard tool.
