GradeHub for Blackboard Instructor Training - Online

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 students take online in Blackboard. 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 Blackboard "content" linked to GradeHub
  • Create an answer key
  • Schedule the exam
  • Upload the exam as a PDF
  • Students take the exam in Blackboard.
  • Review exam results, and last
  • Sync grade back to 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.
