Smart Views in the Blackboard Grade Center allow a customized view based on a focused set of criteria. You can filter the columns to quickly find data and make grading easier and more efficient. Smart Views allow you to tailor the gradebook based on categories, grades, performance, groups, specific items, by class sections, and many more options. Grading Color Codes will also be covered. You are able to create rules to apply color to the cells in the Grade Center grid. Creating color rules provides visual indicators to help you interpret information quickly. For example, you can use yellow to highlight graded items with failing scores so students and columns that require attention are prominent.
