Make Sure your Grade Gets Posted! With multiple submissions allowed, BB may not report your grade. From what we can tell, If there are multiple submissions it seems that a grade only appears if ALL the submissions are graded. BUT only the most recent one counts. Thus you may have to give some sort of fake grade (0) to earlier submissions in order for last one's grade to be visible.

Here are the instructions for downloading the students' files off blackboard: Go to the 160 webpage on blackboard On the side, click evaluation, then Grade Center Click the little arrows ("chevrons") on the side of the column title you want to grade, then select Assignment File Download. Check the boxes next to the students whose files you want to download, then click Submit at the bottom Click "Download assignments now"!
