Grade History Improvements – 3900.52

Blackboard Learn SaaS
Ultra Experience
Ultra Course View
Impact: Instructors

Grading records are important for instructors and academic leaders. The records are useful for addressing academic disputes or addressing students' questions. In an earlier release, we added Grade History to the Ultra Course View. In this release, we are including a new user interface where users will be able to:

  • Select which gradebook items to include in the download,
  • Include deleted items, and
  • Select timeframes to optimize the amount of information downloaded.

The download file report will include additional information:

  • Student username
  • Grade category
  • Submission receipt: The submission receipt number
  • Submission attempt: The number of the submitted attempt

These changes make it easier to access and search the log of changes to student grades.
