Blackboard Tip: Extra Credit In the Blackboard Grade Center


At SHSU Online, the question “How can I add extra credit to my Grade Center?” is asked often by instructors who use the Blackboard grade book to present grades to their students. In the Blackboard Grade Center, faculty members can provide extra credit to students in three ways:

  • Extra credit for the total column
  • Extra credit when weighting grades—added to a category
  • Extra credit for a weighted total column

For the full details on how to add extra credit for students, see the SHSU Online eLearning Support Blog.
