In this course, Patrick Crispen teaches the ins and outs of Blackboard 9 so that educators and trainers can get up to speed in the system quickly—even if they've never used Blackboard before. The course explores customizing a course site, managing users, and adding and organizing content, including multimedia. It also shows how to perform student assessments in the Grade Center, as well as how to communicate with students and encourage participation and collaboration.
To view a report of every grade change that has ever been made to your Blackboard Grade Center during a certain period of time, including who made that change, access your course's Grade Center, you'll find it under Course Management > Grade Center with the two greater than signs. So I'll click on that. If you're running Blackboard 9.0, you go to Evaluation > Grade Center, and under Reports click on View Grade History. Now if you've got a course with multiple TAs or multiple instructors, this is actually a good thing to check every now and then, just to make sure they are not accidentally overwriting your grades.
This is a good way to ensure that your grades aren't changing. What's going on is Blackboard keeps a running history of every grade and every grade change, so you know who did it and when. At the top of this there are three buttons: Disable Grade History, Clear Grade History, and Download. Your institution very likely has disabled the first two buttons, Disable Grade History and Clear Grade History, so when you get into your grade history don't be shocked if those are turned off. The default is to turn them off.
We left them on, just to show you that they are here at some institutions. Most institutions however turned them off. The other thing I want to show you is let me get into the Grade Center. That report is kind of helpful, but let's go and actually look at a particular grade. We'll go to Jayden Brown and to the right of Jayden's grade there is a button with two downward facing chevrons. Remember that always means edit or more. I'm going to click on View Grade Details. When I click on View Grade Details it's going to show me that Jayden's grade currently is 100 out of 100 and if I click on Grade History I can see that I actually entered a grade of 89 at 4:51 on June 24th and Paul Stuart, who happens to be my TA, Paul Stuart accidentally went in and gave the student a grade of 100.
So I probably I want to have a chat with Paul Stuart. But again just remember, the Blackboard keeps a history of all the changes that happened on your Grade Center. To view a report of every grade change that has been made to your Grade Center during a certain period of time, including who made that change, go to Reports and click View Grade History or to the right of a particular grade click on the button with the two downward facing chevrons and click View Grade Details.
