Assigning Grades For Discussion Threads
Note to instructors: By doing “Grade Threads”, each thread will create a new column in the grade book. This could be a pitfall if you do not moderate thread posts. Make sure this is what you wish to do, and not a grade forum where you start the forums.
- Click the forum’s title containing the gradable thread.
- In List View, on the thread listing page, click Grade in the thread’s Grade column.
- If it appears for you, set the amount of points possible for this thread.
- Click Submit.
- Click Grade Thread, and on the Grade Thread Users page, from a user’s Grade column, select Grade.
- This will pull up a list of all of that selected students posts in that thread, and the option to enter a grade on the right.
- Click “Edit Grade” on the right.
- Enter the student’s grade.
- Click Save Grade.
- Press “OK” at the bottom of the page and this is the grade which will appear in this Thread’s Grade Column.
- Call our Blackboard Help line 24 hours a day, every day at (213) 740-5555 and choose option 2.
- Faculty can request help and training from USC’s Enterprise Learning Technologies group by submitting a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
