GradeHub for Blackboard Instructor Training

Hi, I’m Mark from GradeHub, and we’re glad you’re here.

In this teacher training series, we’ll go over how to create an exam that is scored with GradeHub answer sheets. We’ve prepared a few short videos. You can watch all of them for an overview and come back to watch as a specific video before you start a task. The steps covered in this series include How to:

  • Create Content linked to GradeHub
  • Print answer sheets
  • Complete answer sheets
  • Create an answer key
  • Scan and upload answer sheets
  • Review exam results, and last
  • Sync grade back to Grade Center in Blackboard

If you would like to review how to interpret statistical reports, check out the videos I made with Dr. Jennifer Balogh, author of A Practical Guide to Creating Quality Exams: Validity, Reliability, and Overall Exam Statistics; Percentiles and Distributions; and Analyzing questions.
