Faculty - Blackboard Grade Center - Total Column


Grade Center: Total Column

Note: By default, the Grade Center has a Total Column. However, if the instructor wishes to make both the percentage and the letter grade available, a second column needs to be created.

Note: If the grades are weighted, this would not be the column you create.  Rather, another weighted column would be required.

1.Within the Full Grade Center, click the Create Calculated Column button.

2.From the drop down menu, select Total Column.
3.In Section 1: Column Information, enter in the title of the column into the Column Name.

4.Determine what the students will see in this column within their My Grades by clicking the drop down menu next to Primary Display.

5.In Section 3: Select Columns, determine if all columns will be included in the total.

6.Next to Calculated as Running Total, determine if you want students to see their current “total” minus non- graded and items by clicking the radio button next to Yes or No.

7.In Section 4: Options - determine the following:

  • will the column will be calculated into the final grade calculation,
  • will this be visible to the students,
  • will the students see the statistics for the column.

8.When finished, click the Submit button.
