Instructors are able to use letter grades in Blackboard's Grade Center

In order to use letter grades in Blackboard, you must create a 'Grading Schema'. Grading Schemas calculate a percentage based on students' scores versus the number of points possible. From there, you can create a customized Grading Schema for letter grades, pass/fail or other customized grades. To create a grading schema for your course:
  1. In the Grade Center, point to Manage on the action bar and click Grading Schemas
  2. On the Grading Schemas page, click Create Grading Schema on the action bar
  3. Type a Name. The name appears on the Grading Schemas page and in the drop-down lists for primary disply and secondary display when creating or editing columns in the Grade Center.
  4. In the Schema Mapping section, two default rows appear with ranges of percentages. You can edit the two ranges to customize a Pass/Fail schema.
