When a Student submits a test either Blackboard grades it immediately or an instructor needs to manually grade it or portions of it. From the Grade Center instructors can review, respond, and grade a student’s submitted work.


  • From the Control Panel
  • Select Grade Center
  • Select Full Grade Center
  • Navigate to the grade column you want to grade
  • Hover your cursor over the desired cell
  • From the cell, select the Down arrow to open the menu
  • Select Attempt xx/xx/xx
    • Important Note: If the student’s attempt is in progress you cannot grade it until either the student submits the attempt or you submit the attempt on behalf of the student.
    • To do this select the Test Information link to open if not already open. Choose the Submit Attempt button to submit for the student
  • Review student submission
  • Enter the points possible in the X out of x points field for each question
    Note: a grade value must be entered for each question
  • Optional: Feedback and Notes for Attempt
    • Add any comments to the student in the Feedback to Learner field (displays to students)
    • Add any comments to yourself in the Grading Notes field (displays only to instructor)
  • Choose one of the following options:
    • Save and Next: to save score and continue to the next student
      Important Note: you cannot use Save and Next if no other students have submitted or additional attempts have been made to the assessment
    • Save and Exit: to save the score and return to the Grade Details page
    • Exit: to exit without saving score and return to the Grade Details page

 Important Note: From the grade details page, you can also move to next or previous student or grade column by using either the Next User/Column arrows (>) or the Previous User/Column arrows (<) to go to the previous student (located next to the current student’s name or the grade column name) or the Jump to… menu.
