To assist in returning provisional semester 1 results to students, CELT is offering the following workshops:

Workshop: Returning Provisional Grades to Students in Blackboard

It is possible to return grades to students, in a secure manner, using the Grade Centre on Blackboard. Students will only have access to their own grades; it is not possible for them to see the grades for other students in the class.

This hands-on workshop will bring you through the steps necessary to ensure that you can securely return grades to students.

Tasks that will be included:

  • Setting up the Grade Centre to ensure secure return of grades
  • Creating a new column for provisional grades
  • Releasing results
  • How the student access grades

Depending on the group, we can look at more advanced tasks:

  • Downloading the Grade Centre to work offline (in Excel)
  • Uploading grades from whitesheets [new tool]
  • Returning letter grades instead of percentages
  • Exporting grades from Grade Centre to whitesheets [new tool]

Participants should be comfortable with the basic functionality of Blackboard.

  • Tuesday 27th January 2:30 – 4:30 OR
  • Wednesday 28th January 10:00 – 12:00

Numbers in each workshop are limited, so it is essential to reserve your place in advance. To book a place, please complete the form available online. Bookings will be taken on a first come basis, so early registration is recommended.

All workshops take place in AM102, Ground Floor, Arts Millennium Building
