Tell Me

  1. Open the assignment for the group. 
  2. Select the group's name to access the membership list. You can also see which member submitted on behalf of the group.

  3. Grade the assignment using annotation tools and/or rubric. 
  4. Assign a grade to the group or enter an individual team member's grade separately if everyone didn't contribute equally. 
    1. In the submission View, you can assign a grade for the whole group. Type a value in the Grade column.
    2. To assign a different grade to an individual in a group, expand the group list and type a value in the Grade column. The overall group's grade is shown as In Progress. The Post option doesn't appear because some students don't yet have grades for the assignment.

    3. Similarly, after you assign a grade to the overall group, you can edit a group member's individual grade. Expand the list of group members and change a group member's grade as needed. The overall group's grade is shown as Multiple.
    4. You can also assign different grades in the gradebook grid view. Select a group member's cell and all other group members are highlighted in the grid. Edit a group member's grade as needed. You have the option to apply this edited grade to everyone in the group.

  5. Select the feedback icon to enter written comments for the overall assignment. Feedback can be left for the entire group or the individual group member.

Group Grading Limitations

  • Anonymous grading and multiple attempts are not supported on group assignments.
  • You can't change grade settings or group membership after you've started grading.

The Groups tool is expected to evolve with feedback from faculty – tell us what you'd like to see and what is essential to your teaching process so we can let the Blackboard developers know!
