Bb 8 Tutorial: Smart Views

Blackboard introduces a way to query your grade center in a way to  determine statistics such as displaying students that scored below a 70 on a midterm and other outliers that may need discovering.  In addition to statistics, you can use smart views to separate your grade center by course sections.  For example, if you collapse your courses into one Blackboard course, you can create a smart view to separate section 001 students from section 002 students.  Watch the video below to see how it is done.

To access the smart view area:
1. Hover over MANAGE in the grade center
2. Click on SMART VIEW
3. Choose from the available types of smart views to create.
4. If you want to create a smart view to separate your course sections, choose FOCUS.
