Students - How To Find Your Grades On Blackboard

Before the Blackboard (Bb) upgrade on May 17,  students had a "Grades" link under Bb Tools that allowed them to see all their grades without going into each class. Since the upgrade this link has been removed. Instead students can use the My Bb Tab, the global navigation, or the My Blackboard area outside courses or use My Grades on the course menu or Tools, My Grades within each course. 

The My Grades page shows the status of gradable items, such as tests, assignments, journal and blog entries, and discussion posts. The My Grades page may include item names, details, due dates, student and instructor dates of activity, posted grades, points possible, links to rubrics used for grading, and your instructor's comments about the items.
