I’ve decided to post, from time to time, direct questions (and, I hope!, their answers) MCC Blackboard users have sent me. If you have a question, please send it firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be happy to answer it here on the blog.
How do students see their feedback in Blackboard Learn?
Students will get a notification in their global navigation updates menu (click on your name to open global nav, then click on the clock icon) that something’s been graded. If they use the app, there’s a notification there, too.
If they go into the course, they’ll see the feedback by clicking on My Grades in the course menu, then on either the speech bubble next to the numerical grade or on the “hotlink” for the name of the activity.
The speech bubble next to the numerical grade indicates feedback from the instructor; click on it to get a popup with the comments. Clicking on the title of the assessment (“Sample Assignment” in this case) will take the student to the actual file with all the comments attached (if the instructor inserted comments in the text, etc.).
Students can also get to their grades and feedback by clicking on a past-due item in the calendar, provided the instructor has included due dates and not hidden activities after their due dates.
