Mark and leave feedback in Grade Centre

1. Introduction

This guide is for staff marking and leaving feedback on Blackboard assignments.

Note: Marks for surveys and tests (excluding essay questions) will automatically appear in Grade Centre. For instructions, see our guide to accessing Grade Centre.

2. What needs marking?

Submissions that need grading are assigned a yellow exclamation mark in Grade Centre. 

If a student has not submitted an assignment, you'll see two dashes ‘- -‘.


3. Manually input marks

The simplest (but not the best) way to enter marks in Grade Centre is to manually input them into a column. To do this, click the exclamation mark, type the mark and press enter on your keyboard. The mark is stored in Grade Centre. 

4. View a submission

a. Click the action link (down arrow) next to any exclamation mark.

b. Click View Grade Details
c. Click View Attempts
d. To download a submission file, click the link under Submission on the right of the screen.
e. Enter the mark into the Attempt box. The Grade box will then display the mark for the most recently marked attempt. You can also add written feedback and / or upload a file.
f. Click Submit. Your marks and feedback are saved to Grade Centre. The Grading view will automatically open the next attempt by the same student.

4. Leave feedback

You can leave general feedback in the side panel on the right of the assignment submission, as well as inline comments on some file types. More information is available in our leaving feedback guide.
