The Blackboard Gradebook is a key tool for instructors. You can grade coursework, manage items, and post grades from 3 different views: 1) Gradable items list 2) Student view, and 3) Grid view. You can also create calculated columns to calculate your weighted grades, which can make marking a lot easier. You can customize the Gradebook with features that allow you to organize your columns, create grading schemas, group items into categories, hide columns from students until you are ready to share their grades, as well as many others.
