To assign a grade in the Blackboard Grade Center, click on the box for the corresponding student and grading item and enter a numerical point value. To save the change, click on another grade box and select OK when asked to confirm the entry.
Note: If another format (eg. letter grade) has been selected for your grading item, then you will have to enter a grade in that format instead.
Shortcut: instead of clicking on another grade box to save the change, you may press Enter on the keyboard and skip the confirmation. Also, once you have clicked on a grade box, the arrow keys may be used to navigate between the cells in a similar manner to Microsoft's Excel program.
If you wish to exempt a student from a grade, click on the double-down arrow next to the grade box and select exempt grade.
