Blackboard FAQ: Grades, Excluding Individual Record
I want to excuse a student from an assignment because he was allowed to join the class late. How do I do this in the Grade Center?
you can do that using the Exempt Grade feature.
The exempting of an individual grade can be useful in situations, like where
you would like to drop a low quiz/test score or you do not want to include a particular
grade when calculating the student’s total score.
the Control Panel, enter the
Grade Center (select the
Full Grade Center option).
Go to the column of the item in question and click on the individual cell (i.e.
grade) that you want to exempt; then click on the double downward pointing arrows
that appear. From the drop-down menu, click the Exempt Grade option.
will now find that the area that contained the grade will show a small blue
square in its place. The student will also see the same icon in place of a
grade when he/she checks the grade in the Grade
Note: If later on you want to undo this
process and enter a grade for that cell, you can repeat the above process -- this
time, though, from the drop-down menu, click the Clear Exemption option. The cell will now no longer show the blue square
and you can then enter a grade into that cell.
