The Grade Center in Blackboard is an online spreadsheet that allows instructors to organize and manage grades for their students.  The spreadsheet is broken into columns, each representing a different assignment or portion of the student's total grade.  These columns can be regular columns that you assign values to (i.e. 100, 85, A, C, etc.) or they can be calculated columns that run functions based on criteria specified by the instructor.

Please note: the Grade Center is only available to instructors.

1. Log into Blackboard with your NetID and NetID password
