Blackboard Grade Submission



Watch a short tutorial
video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player

All grade submission activity takes place in the Blackboard Learning System. Grades are transferred from Blackboard to Registration & Records, then students view the "official" grades in WebExpress.

  • Go to Blackboard, bb.bw.edu, log in and find your course(s).
  • Click the course where you would like to submit Warnings or Final Grades.
    NOTE: You will see a new module listing all of your courses and a shortcut to the grade submission tool.

  • View the new course Control Panel layout, or use the new module on the homepage to go directly to the tool.
  • Go to the Control Panel of your course and note the location of the tool, under Evaluation. You will see the Gradebook link, as well as the Midterm Gradebook Submission and Final Gradebook Submission links.



  • Click Gradebook Submission – Enter Grades from the dropdown. You can also Save and return later to Submit. You can Save and return as many times as you want, but only Submit ONCE.


  • For Midterm Grades, there are specific REQUIRED codes for students that need Midterm warnings (below passing grade). You can choose to give them to every student.


    IMPORTANT: You must submit a final grade for EVERY student. Leaving the final grade blank will give Registration and Records an error. Report any enrollment discrepancies to the Registrar immediately.

  • Print your submitted grades for your records
