How to Check Grades Using the My Grades Tool

You can use the My Grades tool to check your grades and any feedback the instructor has left on your work. Checking feedback on individual tests or assignments can also be a bit tricky. For steps on how to do that, see How to View a Graded Assignment in Blackboard.

Step-by-Step Guide

Accessing My Grades

There are a few ways to get to My Grades.

Please Note: In My Grades you will only see what the instructor has allowed students to see. Some instructors will have a point grade setup as their external (main displayed) grade and some will have a letter grade setup. (See an example in the screenshot located under "My Grades.")

How to Access My Grades via My Blackboard

  1. Navigate to the drop-down menu beneath your name on the top right-hand side of your Blackboard page.
  2. Click the icon of a sheet of paper with a check mark and plus sign as seen below.
