Get Started

Predict's advisor view allows you to guide your students more effectively by providing you with insights about their major and academic loads.

Sign in

You can access Blackboard Predict in one of two ways depending on the experience of Blackboard Learn at your institution.

If your institution uses Blackboard Learn with the Original Experience, select Blackboard Predict Advisor Tool from the Tools menu under My Institution.

My Institution > Tools > Blackboard Predict Advisor Tool

If your institution uses Blackboard Learn with the Ultra Experience, you will have a separate sign in page for Predict. Institutions have some control over what you see on the sign-in page. However, everyone needs the same three pieces of information to gain access:

  • The web address of your institution's advisor site
  • Your username
  • Your password

If you don't know how to access your Predict site, contact the computing help desk at your institution. Blackboard doesn't have access to your institution's site and can't help you with these types of questions.

If you’re not sure how to contact them, look for the technology office on your institution’s website. You can also search the web for your institution’s name +Blackboard + help or support.

View student list

After you log in, Blackboard Predict opens the Student List page, which shows overviews of student profiles. By default, only the students you advise are displayed. 

The following information for each individual is displayed, and can be sorted by selecting the arrows next to the category:

  • Student: Student name and ID number. You can view student details by hovering over a student's name.
  • Probability of Passing: The probability of passing all courses in which the student is enrolled.
  • Courses: What courses the student is enrolled.

Your institution can choose to include extra information in Blackboard Predict. If your institution allows, you may see details such as GPA, credits, degree program, and financial information.

Filter options

You can use filters to locate specific students based on what you find important. Select the filter icon in the upper right corner. You can filter student details by risk trend, risk level, and any additional category your institution allows. Select Clear filters below the filter icon to remove the filters. 

Send email

Using the course email tool, you can send messages to students directly from within Blackboard Predict.

To send an email, select the mail icon from the right side of the student row, or hover over the student name and select the mail icon in the lower right corner. The student's name and your title are included in the email template. Type your message and click Send.
