Q. How do I change a numeric grade to a letter grade in the grade centre?


Attaching a Grading Schema to NILE.

Before releasing grades a grading schema will need to be attached to the assignment so that the numeric grade is converted to a letter grade. 

In Blackboard 'Assignments,' the option for this is within the assignment set-up options, for Turnitin submissions this will need to be added in the Grade Centre.


Linking to the grading schema in the grade centre. 

The option for linking the grading schema to an assignment is within the Grade Centre column options: -

Select the downward chevron icon next to the Column Title and in the drop-down menu select: 

'Edit Column Information' 

Screengrab, Grade Centre Options, Edit Column Information highlighted

In the option 'Primary Display' (Drop Down Menu) select either 'UnderGrad' or 'PostGrad' Letter and submit

Screengrab, Primary Display options, highlighted UnderGrad Letter.
