As the question says ... can I? I can't find a reference to it anywhere, yet I can't see that others wouldn't want to.
We've got BB October 2014 if that makes a difference. (Hopefully upgrading later in the year)
We've exported grading schemas by creating an empty Bb course with just the grading schema - nothing else in the Grade Center.
Go to Packages and Utilities in the Control Panel.
Click Export/Archive Course.
Click the Export Package button.
In the Select Course Materials area, click ONLY the Grade Center Columns and Settings checkbox.
This creates a file that can then be imported into courses to add the grading schema to the course.
I hope this helps!
OOohh, that sounds like a good idea. I'll try it
That worked! Many thanks.
Great! Glad to hear that this worked for you.
Now, the next query ... is it possible to bulk import to multiple courses??
Batch_ImportExport.sh commandline tool can do that. The help guide has instructions on how to make a feed file and execute the tool:
Export, Archive, and Restore Courses - Blackboard Help
Thanks! Will test at the right time
Note that in the 9.1 October 2015 and newer releases you can use the Grades Journey feature for creating schemas in multiple courses via text file and RESTful API. Flat File - Incoming File Specifications - Blackboard Help
Thanks - that looks potentially very interesting. Do you know if it works with Turnitin assignments, or just those that are created & done totally from within Blackboard?
