Extra Credit Column in Blackboard Learn 9.1

Want to add extra credit in your course but can’t figure how to add it to the Grade Center?

  • Create a new column called Extra Credit

Create New Column in Bb 9.1 Grade Center

  • Set Points Possible to “0” (this way, if a student doesn’t get any extra points, they won’t be penalized in any way)
  • Make sure to select the Option: Include this Column in Grade Center Calculations (again, if a student didn’t get any points, it’s OK because the points possible is “0”)
  • If someone receive extra credit, click on the field for the student in the Grade Center under the Extra Credit Column and enter the amount of extra points which will then be added to the total column.
