Blackboard Gradebook Instructions

As a means to appropriately collect student scores on signature assignments for the CRITICAL CORE assessment/improvement plan, instructors must utilize the Blackboard grade center to enter a score of zero to 4 in a CRITICAL CORE score column.  To ensure the column is set up correctly for the purpose of data analysis, a CRITICAL CORE score column package (specific to a key indicator) has been created.  Faculty should:
