  • Select the Control Panel (left side navigation).

After you have selected or created a scale/schema to work on, you will see it presented in two columns.
The first column establishes what grade will be applied when a percentile score is entered. The other indicates what percentage will be used for calculation when a student’s performance is entered as a letter grade.

This grading schema should now be available to associate with Blackboard content (assignments, tests, etc…) in your course and to display in the Grade Book.
