This tutorial will explain how to enter students' grades into SpartanWeb.
At the end of the semester, regardless of whether or not you use Blackboard for keeping track of students' grades, all grades must be entered into SpartanWeb.
- Log onto SpartanWeb
- On the Home tab, click on the Course Details, Class List, Grade Entry link in the Useful links section.
- When the new window opens, make sure the term is set to the current term in the Term drop-down menu, then choose Grade Entry from the Select Area dropdown.
- Select a grade for each student from the drop-down menu after the student's name.
- For students who stopped attending or did not attend at all but did not withdraw, we are required to record a last date of attendance for federal financial aid.
(You can use the calendar menu in the Last Date of Attendance column to select the date of last attendance.)
- When you are finished entering all of the necessary information, click the Save button in the lower-left corner of the screen to submit the grades.
(A confirmation page will display letting you know your grades have been successfully updated.) You can overwrite grades until the close date.
This tutorial provides an overview of the Blackboard Content Collection.
Blackboard’s Content Collection is a file repository that allows faculty to store, manage, and share content. Since the Content Collection is a component of Blackboard Learn, it can be accessed from any computer with an internet connection.
This article explains weighted grades and why some professors use them.
What does it mean to weight a grade? When grades are weighted, some assignments (e.g. Final Essay) or categories of assignments (e.g. Lab Experiments) count more than others.
This tutorial explains the features of the Blackboard Global Navigation Menu.
My Blackboard provides all users with quick and easy access to information regarding UT and offered courses. It also provides social networking tools. Students can view how they are doing in each course, view grades, and be reminded of upcoming assignments.
This article explains how to create content in the Blackboard Content Collection.
There are two types of content that make up the Content Collection:
- Folders - Folders may contain subfolders and/or files.
- Items - Items can be any type of file. The most common file types are .pdf, .docx, .pptx, and .xlsx. (Note: To the extent possible, video files should be placed in the Content Collection; they should be linked to. For help with this, please contact the Educational Technology Department.)
This tutorial explains how to set limits for the courses and organizations shown in Blackboard's Global Navigation Menu.
Once you have logged in to Blackboard, the Global Navigation Menu is always located in the upper right-hand corner of the display. Clicking your name or selecting the small triangle activates a pull-down menu where shortcuts are provided. Next to the triangle may be a small number in a red square indicating that changes, notifications, and updates have been made in any of your courses since the last login.
