Export grades from within the database

Hi all,


I would like to know a bit more about how the grades are presented to the student and how these scores can be referred back to the database.

All of this because we want to present the grades on a different page.


So I looked in the database schema:

I see the following:

POSSIBLE: the best possible score

MANUAL_GRADE: Grade override by the Instructor

MANUAL_SCORE: Score override by the Instructor (what is the difference?)

EXEMPT_IND: Is the student exempted or not?


When I have simulated a score from within a test (scored 10/10), these scores are presented in:



- What is the difference between those two?

- And are these indeed the fields where Blackboard inserts the points, scored in a test, assignment, assessment etc?


I hope this makes a bit sense and hopefully you can help me,

thanks, Regards,
