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:

  • Review the General Education Foundation Implementation Checklist here
  • Download the appropriate CRITICAL CORE score column package (appropriate to the course alignment for your CRITICAL CORE Competency and Key Indicator)
    • Review the video instructions for uploading the score column package here
    • Review the video instructions for labeling the signature assignment here
      • Download the import instructions (PDF) for quick reference here
      • Check LearnerWeb for open lab schedule for personalized assistance with this import (for General Education Foundation courses) - sessions will start in early August 2017 and continue throughout the 2017-2018 academic year
      • Contact the ITS helpdesk for additional technical assistance via email or at ext 5000
      • Contact the GEF Council lead for further questions or concerns
