Grading in Blackboard

FRIDAY, SEPT 16TH: 3:30-4:30PM SWENSON 111

One of the things students stress about most is their grade in your class. Using the Bb grade tool can help relieve some of this stress and reduce the number of "what is my grade now?" emails. Best of all, once you set it up, you can copy it into any or all of your future courses!
