Viewing Assignment Grades and Feedback — Students

Assignments are not graded automatically. Each assignment needs to be graded by your instructor. You can access the grading information provided by your instructor in My Grades which is available from the Grades area of the main navigation, from the Tools area within the course, or on the assignment's Review Submission History page.

Grades on the Main Navigation

The main navigation has a Grades area which shows a summary of grades in all courses. Individual courses are presented there as a group with recently graded or summary grades displayed, depending on the settings your instructor has set in the course. Clicking on "View all work" in this area will take you to the My Grades area of the course where you can see feedback and additional details.

Accessing My Grades from Within a Course

By default, Blackboard courses include an area called "Tools" that provides student access to My Grades. Your instructor has control over the display of this button. If you do not find it they may have moved or renamed it, or they may have created a link that takes you directly to My Grades. If you do not find the option shown below, you can access My Grades through the main navigation or contact your instructor to ask how they prefer for you to access My Grades from within course. 

  1. On the course menu, click Tools

  3. You will see a list of all submissions that have been graded by your instructor. Clicking the blue comment icon next to the score will reveal any additional feedback provided by your instructor. If your instructor has used a rubric for grading and has made it available to students, click View Rubric to display detailed grading information.

Reviewing a Graded Assignment Submission Inline

You can view your grade and any annotations your instructor made to your assignment submission directly from the assignment attempt without downloading the file. The panel to the right of your submission includes attachments and comments created by your instructor including audio or video feedback.
