Students can access the Goal Performance Dashboard to better understand how they are performing in a course. The dashboard displays course goals and the assessments that map to them. A student can directly see how their individual grades contribute to achieving the goals for the course.

You can access the Student Goal Performance Dashboard two ways.

Access The Dashboard From The My Blackboard Tab

Go to the My Blackboard tab after you log in to Learn. In the Tools menu, select Goal Performance.

On this dashboard, you can view more information about your goals and achievements. Select a goal to view the individual components and determine where there is room for improvement or where you are succeeding. The goal definition is also displayed.

Access The Dashboard In A Course

For a more detailed analysis of your goals, access the Goal Performance Dashboard within a specific course.

In the course menu, select Tools and then Goal Performance. This view of the dashboard shows course goals and the assignments and other types of coursework that align with each goal. When your instructor creates an assignment, they can choose questions that demonstrate achievement toward a goal. Based on your performance on these assignments, Blackboard Learn calculates your goal progress and displays it in this dashboard.

The dashboard shows how many questions in an assessment map to a certain goal, and how your performance on those questions stacks up against the overall goal. You can see the scale for each goal by hovering over the progress bar or by selecting View Scale at the top of the dashboard.
