Inline Grading

For interactive tools and assignments, you can view, provide comments, and grade student-submitted items without leaving the tool page.  This means, for assignments submitted by students within Blackboard, you no longer need to download and view the submission in Word or another program; you can view, comment, and mark up the document directly in Blackboard.

This tool will work for submitted documents (Word, PowerPoint, Excel and PDF) as well as Blogs and Journals.

While assigning grades, the inline grading sidebar allows you to view information about gradable items, navigate between users and attempts, and view and use associated rubrics inline.
