Portoflio submissions-> Allows students to submit a portfolio. For more information about portfolios, please consult Blackboard's help article about portfolios.
7)This is how many submissions the students will get. You may provide one, multiple, or unlimited. All submissions are kept on record. You also have the capability to ignore or delete attempts. For more information about managing student attempts, please refer to Blackboard's assignment help page.
8) With this option enabled, student names will be hidden from you during grading. The University of Windsor does not recommend this option nor the Delegated Grading option at this time. The names will be released upon all assignments being graded or upon a certain date. For more information, refer to Blackboard's help article about anonymous grading.
9) With this option enabled, you have the ability to have certain grading staff such as GAs/TAs to mark a certain group of students. The instructor will then review the grades before they are shown to the students.
