BB9 Creating a Letter Grade

A faculty member can create a letter grade easily in BB9, but it is a two-step process. The first step is to define the letter grade schema, then attach the schema to a grade column.

Step 1: Create a Letter Grade Schema

  1. Go to the full grade center
  2. Click Manage > Grading Schemas
  3. You should see a Grading Schema called Letter; you need to make a copy of “Letter” so you can modify it for your new schema. To do this click the action link on the right side of the word letter and click “Copy”Grading Schemas
  4. A new schema will appear with the same name and the number 2 > Click the action link beside the new schema and click edit. You will see the following schema.Edit Grading Schema
  5. You can now edit the name and grading scheme.
    New Grading Schema
  6. Click Submit to save the schema. Your new schema will now appear in the grading schema.

Step 2: Attach a Schema to a Grade Column

  1. Go to the full grade center and find the column to which you want to add the schema. In this case I want to add it to the “Total” column.
  2. Select the action link in the Total column header and select Edit Column Information
    Add Schema
  3. In the Edit Total Column window under the Secondary Display click the down arrow and select the new schema title

    Secondary Display

  4. Back in the Full Gradebook the total column will now display a letter grade beside the total points.
