Showing a letter grade in the Blackboard Grade Center when a student’s overall score is more than 100%
When students earn more than 100% in a course, due to extra credit, the Blackboard grade center will show a score rather than a letter grade in the total column if primary display letter is selected by the instructor.
This can be fixed so that these high scoring students will see the A+ they deserve.
First go to the Grade Center in Blackboard:
Control Panel > Grade Center > Full Grade Center
Then click Manage
Select Grading Schemas
The grading schema Letter will be listed here.
- Click the down arrow to the right of Letter
- Select Edit.
Update the top row from 100 to 150 or more.
Click the Submit button.
Now students earning more than 100% in the class will see the A+ letter grade.
