Your courses can appear in two user interfaces in Blackboard Learn: Original and Ultra. Based on what you see, your grades appear in different places in the system. Use the screenshots to determine which interface your institution uses.

Where are my grades?

Doesn't seem familiar? Jump to the "Ultra" help about finding grades.

You have two options:

  1. You can see grades for all of your courses at once.
  2. You can view grades for one course at a time.

All grades at once

To view grades for all of your courses, select the arrow next to your name in the upper-right corner. In the menu, select My Grades. You can sort your grades by All Courses or Last Graded. If your work hasn't been graded, grade status icons appear. Select a graded item's title to review your submission. For tests, after you select the title, the View Attempts page opens. Select the grade to review your submission.

ULTRA: Where are my grades?

Doesn't seem familiar? Jump to the "Original" help about finding your grades.

Your grades can appear in multiple places. Wherever you find your grade, you'll find the information you need.

  • On your course's Grades page inside the relevant course
  • In your activity stream
  • On your global Grades page, accessed from the list where your name appears

1. Inside the course

You can access your course grades on the course's navigation bar. Select the Grades icon to access all the coursework that's specific to the course you're in.

Then, on the Course Grades page, select a title to see the grade and feedback from your instructor.

2. Activity stream

As your instructors post grades, you'll find them in your activity stream. Select View your grade to display your grade. If your instructor added feedback, you'll see it after the item's title.

If your instructor updates a grade, the grade is also updated in the stream.

3. Your global Grades page

To see your grades for all your courses in one place, select Grades from the list on the left where your name appears. All of your grades are organized by course. You can see what's due and set priorities across all of your courses. No need to navigate to each course individually.

ULTRA: Grade pills

Your instructor determines how to display your grade for each graded item:

  • Letter grade
  • Points
  • Percentage

The grade pill for each assessment question and graded item may appear in colors or with dark backgrounds.

For the colored grade pills, the highest score range is green and the lowest is red. At this time, your instructors can't change the colors or the percentages. The colors map to these percentages:

  • > 90% = green
  • 89–80% = yellow/green
  • 79–70% = yellow
  • 69–60% = orange
  • 59–50% = red

Your institution can disable the color scheme for all courses. The grade pills appear with dark backgrounds and white grades. Colors won't be used to convey performance.

ULTRA: How do my grades compare to others?

You can use learning analytics to find out where you stand in relation to your classmates and plan how to improve your position.
