The grade center in Blackboard is quite helpful for organizing and formatting grades especially as finals are wrapping up. Professors can total their grades quickly and create weighted totals. Dropping the lowest grade of a category (homework, quizzes, tests, etc.) is also easily implemented in the final total column. At any point, professors may also export their grade center to an excel sheet. Make sure to categorize assignments as you create them to make calculating final grades with weighted totals easy and fast. Nobody wants to spend more time than necessary inputting one number at a time so put the grade center to work for you!
