Are instructors 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:
Instructors are able to use letter grades in Blackboard's Grade Center
- In the Grade Center, point to Manage on the action bar and click Grading Schemas
- On the Grading Schemas page, click Create Grading Schema on the action bar
- 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.
- 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.
