Creating Custom Grade Center Categories
is the first step in creating a weighted column in the Blackboard Grade Center.
Blackboard provides standard categories that are automatically assigned as
assessments are created. The included categories include assignment, blog,
discussion, journal, survey, and test. Creating categories would be helpful for
instructors who have multiple written assignments at a certain weight and have
a final paper at a completely different weight. This document assumes that the
instructor is logged in to Blackboard and in a course.
