Blackboard Grade Center

All College faculty are required to use the Grade Center in Blackboard. According to a resoultion approved by Academic Council:

In order to increase student success, the OAA Digital Learning Committee recommends that all Columbus State faculty employ the Blackboard grade center for students in a manner which allows students to determine, at any point during the term, their current grade in the course (e.g. a running average; running total, weighted or unweighted; other up-to-date benchmark that allows a student to compare their performance to that course’s overall standards of assessment).  The committee recommends full compliance by summer 2017.

Need to brush up on your grade center skills? This workshop will introduce you to the main grade center features. Participants can also schedule additional one on one help with the Faculty Assistance Center following the workshop.
