All members of a group receive the same grade for group assignments. Assignments list the name, description, and attachments for group work. You can also add comments for your instructor.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why can't I open our group assignment?

Contact the computing help desk at your institution. They can help you troubleshoot and download any application you might need. If you’re not sure how to contact them, look for the technology office on your institution’s website or search the web for your institution’s name + Blackboard + help or support. Check to make sure you are using a supported internet browser and operating system for your institution's version of Blackboard.

Why can't I find our group assignment?

Your group assignment might only be available on a certain date or after you complete a certain task. For example, you might have to mark a lecture as reviewed before you can access a group assignment. Contact your instructor for more information.

My instructor did not receive our group assignment. What do I do?

You must discuss this issue with your instructor. To learn more, see How to Submit Work for a Group Assignment.

How do I edit or resubmit a group assignment?

Editing a group assignment requires you to resubmit the assignment, and not all assignments can be resubmitted. Contact your instructor to ask for the opportunity to resubmit the assignment.

If your instructor allows you to submit a group assignment more than once, you will see a Start New function on the Review Submission History page. You access this page by clicking the group assignment link in your course. To learn more, see Edit or Resubmit a Group Assignment.

How do I know whether my group assignment has been graded?

On the course menu, click Tools, and then click My Grades. If your group assignment has not been graded, the group assignment's row contains a symbol indicating its status.

Edit or Resubmit a Group Assignment

Editing a group assignment requires you to resubmit the assignment, and not all assignments can be resubmitted. Contact your instructor to ask for the opportunity to resubmit the assignment.

Your instructor may allow you to submit a group assignment more than once for a variety of reasons. For example, your instructor can provide comments on your first draft so that you can try to improve your work. Your instructor can choose to use either the highest graded attempt or the last graded attempt for your grade.

If your instructor has allowed you to submit a group assignment more than once, you will see a Start New function on the Review Submission History page. You access this page by clicking the group assignment link in your course.
