Blackboard Grade Center
Need to brush up on your Grade Center skills? This workshop will introduce you to the main Grade Center features. Participants can also schedule additional one-on-one help with the Faculty Assistance Center following the workshop. All College faculty are required to use the Grade Center in Blackboard. According to a resolution approved by Academic Council:

In order to increase student success, the OAA Digital Learning Committee recommends that all Columbus State faculty employ the Blackboard Grade Center for students in a manner which allows students to determine, at any point during the term, their current grade in the course (e.g. a running average; running total, weighted or unweighted; other up-to-date benchmark that allows a student to compare their performance to that course’s overall standards of assessment).
