View Grade Details

If you access My Grades from the My Institution tab or the My Blackboard menu, you see grades for all your courses. On the left side of the screen, you can sort by All Courses or Last Graded.

If you access My Grades inside a course, you see your grades for that course only.

The Order by drop-down list allows you to change the order by Course Order, Last Activity, or Due Date. By default items are ordered by course order.

Above the list of gradable items, you can narrow the list by selecting All, Graded, Upcoming, or Submitted. For example, Graded shows only items that have been graded by the instructor.

If your instructor included feedback during grading, it is included inline. You can also point to a title and click the arrow that appears to show the type of graded item, such as assignment or blog.

If your gradable item has not been graded, the Grade column contains a symbol indicating its status. After an item is graded, the grade appears in the Grade column. To view more detail, click a graded item's title.
