Can I set up weighted grades in Blackboard?

Yes! If you use percentages rather than points for the grading breakdown in your syllabus, you can change the Grades Area settings in your Blackboard course to do the same.

How do I add a new assignment to Grade Center?

In Blackboard’s Grade Center, your gradebook is set up in a table, much like a spreadsheet, and each assignment, quiz, etc. has its own “Grade Column.” How you add a new grade column varies depending for different types of assessments.
