Grade Submission through BlackBoard

What's new - grade submit in BlackboardThat’s right, you can now use BlackBoard to submit final grades for the semester. If you wish to try this new feature, it’s quite easy, though also optional. Grades can still always be submitted in the normal fashion through the MyPNC portal and the Faculty Banner self-service tool. The Grade Submit tool simply makes it a little easier to send your final grades directly from BlackBoard to Banner in a few short steps.

Instructions on using the Grade Submit Tool in BlackBoard can be found here.
