For this week’s tech tip, we offer timely and important information for instructors who are using the Blackboard Grade Center.  With the end of the semester drawing near, it is essential to keep a copy of your Grade Center. Downloading the Grade Center each time you enter new grades is a good way to maintain a backup of your Grade Center in case Blackboard becomes inaccessible. Excel also offers more complex mathematical functions than Blackboard’s Grade Center. If you download the Grade Center to Excel to do additional grade calculations, you will then need to upload the grades back into Blackboard. You’ll only need to follow the steps for downloading if you just wish to keep a backup of your grades.   For complete instructions on how to back up your Grade Center, visit the link to instructions below.  For more help documentation on the Grade Center, visit the Grade Center Help page.
