Q. Sometimes when I have created an assignment using the Assignment Tool, I have not indicated the total possible points for the item, so Blackboard does not include those points in the Total column in the Grade Center for each person. Is there any way I can “retroactively” tell Blackboard the total points possible for a given assignment?
A. You can modify an assignment to add points possible after it has already been graded. Here’s how:
- Go to the assignment’s column in the Grade Center and click on the chevron beside the assignment name.
- Click on Edit.
- On the Edit Assignment page, under 3. Grading, enter the number of points possible for the assignment.
- Click Submit.
If you have already entered a grade for any student who completed the assignment before you modified points possible, you will need to go back through View Grade Details in the Grade Center to edit that grade.
Now the Total column will include the points you give each student for the assignment.
