Blackboard Feature Spotlight: Anonymous Grading
Eliminate the possibility of grading bias by grading assignments anonymously. In order for assignments to be completely anonymous please remind your students NOT to include their name or any other identification information in their submission.
- From the “Create Assignment” page scroll down to “Grading Options”
- Check the option for “Enable Anonymous Grading”
- Select when to Disable Anonymous Grading. Disabling Anonymous Grading will make the grades visible to the instructor. NOTE: During the Anonymous Grading window, grades will be visible to students and not to the instructor.
Since the attempts are anonymous a yellow notification icon () will NOT appear in grade center. Grading can be completed from the Needs Grading page or from Grade Center.
From the Needs Grading Page
To access the Needs Grading page click Needs Grading from the Grade Center tab in the Control Panel. To grade the assignment hover over the assignment name, click the chevron(), then click “Grade All Users.”
