My Grades

The My Grades page allows students to view posted grades and the status of gradable items. When a student accesses My Grades via the Global Navigation menu they see grade information from all courses in one location. My Grades may include item names, details, due dates, student and instructor dates of activity, posted grades, points possible, links to rubrics used for grading and instructor's comments about the items.

As an instructor you will not see any information if you click on My Grades in a course, just the message "Users with your role do not have personal grades". Instructors can use Student Preview mode to access My Grades and see the student view of grades in their course. 

There are three ways for students to access the My Grades page: From inside a course 1) click My Grades on the left course menu, 2) click Student Tools on the course menu then My Grades. To see grades for all courses 3) access the Blackboard Global Navigation Menu (click your name in the upper right) and click the My Grades icon.
