To begin using Inline Grading, enter your Blackboard course site and go to the Full Grade Center. Click your students’ Assignment attempts in the grade cells of the Grade Center in your course as you normally would to access the student submissions. You will notice the heads-up paper display right away.
Blackboard Assignments accept the submission of any document type by students. Document types that can be displayed in-line for grading are Word (DOC, DOCX), PowerPoint (PPT, PPTX), Excel (XLS, XLSX), and PDF (PDF). The converted document is displayed in a viewer on the Grade Assignment page. Any document type that a student submits which cannot be displayed in-line can still be downloaded and viewed offline by the instructor, just as in previous versions of Blackboard.
