Blackboard - Creating a Grade Scheme in Grade Center

Below are instructions in how to create a grade scheme in Blackboard Grade Center.

A Grading Schema defines the ranges of scores that produce letter grades A - F. Blackboard can use this Grading Schema to convert numeric scores to a letter grade display. In this example we'll create the standard grade schema of A = 100-90, B = 89.9-80, C = 79.9- 70, D=69.9-60 and F=59.9 and below.

  1. In your Grade Center, choose Manage, then click Grading Schemas.
  2. Choose Create Grading Schema.
  3. Click on the action arrows to the right of “Letter” to edit the grade schema. Give the schema a name (i.e. "My Letter Grade"), and an optional description.
