Backing up your Blackboard Gradebook


At the end of each semester (and at least once during the semester) I like to back up my grades to a spreadsheet file. From the Blackboard Grade Center, click Manage > Download. Leave all the options as is and click Submit. On the next screen, click the Download button. When a window pops up, click OK to open with Microsoft Excel. If you get a message about a different format, just click YES. Now you see all your grades in a spreadsheet!

Tip: When you save the spreadsheet file, save it in your class folder and change the “save as type” to Excel Workbook.
