Edit or Resubmit a Group Assignment

Editing a group assignment requires you to resubmit the assignment, and not all assignments can be resubmitted. Contact your instructor/leader to ask for the opportunity to resubmit the assignment.

Your instructor/leader may allow you to submit a group assignment more than once for a variety of reasons. For example, your instructor/leader can provide comments on your first draft so that you can try to improve your work. Your instructor/leader can choose to use either the highest graded attempt or the last graded attempt for your grade.

If your instructor/leader has allowed you to submit a group assignment more than once, you will see a Start New function on the Review Submission History page. You access this page by clicking the group assignment link in your course/organization.

View Group Assignment Grades and Feedback

Blackboard does not score assignments automatically. Your instructor/leader must review and grade each group assignment. You can review the information provided by your instructor/leader in My Grades or on the group assignment's Review Submission History page.

Access My Grades From Your Course/Organization

You can view your grades from inside your course/organization in My Grades. My Grades can appear on the course/organization menu or on the Tools page.

Review Your Grade From the Group Homepage

You can also view your grade and any feedback provided by your instructor/leader on the group assignment's Review Submission History page. If your instructor/leader attached a file, you must access it from the group assignment link on the group homepage.

Access My Grades Outside Your Course/Organization

On the My Blackboard tab, click My Grades on the Tools panel.
