Decimals transferring from FBS to GradeCenter in Blackboard
Grades entered with a decimal in the Feedback Studio are rounded when they transfer to the GradeCenter within Blackboard, even when calculated from a rubric. This causes the professor to have to change their grading style or manually transfer the grades. When will the integration with Blackboard allow for decimals?
Brenda, this is still an issue with Turnitin. After calculating the rubric score with a decimal (7.5), clicking "Apply to Grade" to apply the rubric score in Turnitin rounds the number (8). This rounded number is what is transferred to the grade center.
Last time I check in late 2017, TII was investigating adding decimal grades but stated it was not a priority.Reply
