Key events

Graded, not posted

Grade history in Original shows now a new key event for records when you, as an instructor, extract the grade history report. The event key is “Graded, not posted”. This record will show when you open an Original test submission attempt that won't grade automatically -  for example, a test with an essay question - and grade some but not all questions, leaving the grading page without saving. 

The event key “Graded, not posted” means there is at least one question pending to be graded in a test submission attempt.

Change the view of grade history

You can filter the data on the Grade History page and display entries within a date range.

Access the Show Entries from Past menu, select a range, and select Go.

To sort items, select a column heading such as Date or Value.

In two situations, you may see Blackboard Administrator listed in the Last Edited By column:

  • A student started a timed test set to auto-submit but left the test. The system auto-submits the test when the time is up.
  • A student was removed from your course and an item's attempt grade was then cleared.

Download the grade history file

You can download the grade history to your computer as a delimited file.

On the Grade History page, select Download and select the Delimiter Type for the file, either Comma or Tab. You can also include comments in your file.
