View Your Grades With JAWS

The information below applies to Blackboard Learn with the Original experience.

View grades from your course

  1. From your course select the My Grades link on the course menu or on the Tools page.

    On the My Grades page, you can view all the coursework and grades for the course you're in. Pressing the Tab key first announces the name of the assignment, followed by its grade.

    If you would only like to view those assignments which have been graded, select the Graded link (among All/Graded/Upcoming/Submitted).

  2. Select the name of an assignment.

    You arrive on the Attempts page. From here, you may press the T key to jump to the table containing the grade(s) of each attempt.

    Use table navigation commands to review the grade for each attempt. Alt + Ctrl + Up/Down arrows move you between attempts, and Alt + Ctrl + Left/Right arrows move you between the Date Created, Date Last Submitted or Edited and Calculated Grade columns. JAWS announces column headers as you move to them.

  3. Select the grade number in the Calculated Grade column.

    This allows you to view a breakdown of the score, including points earned for each question.

    If no grade has yet been assigned, a graphic appears that reads “Needs Grading” or “grade.status.needsgrading.”

    After pressing Enter on a grade, you'll arrive at the View Attempt page.

    Use the H key to jump between each question. The grade for a question appears below its heading, followed by the original question prompt.

    If your instructor has allowed it, you can view their feedback on this page as well. Find their feedback for the exam above the heading marking the first question.
