When a Parent logs into the BLC, they will see Items to Grade for all course enrollments for each of their students. To grade an item, click on the hyperlink to open the item. Grading Assignments When you select an item that is an assignment type, the assignment is presented followed by the submitted file or text and then by the rubric (if available.) Grading an assignment by rubric is simple. Review each category on the rubric and select the best option for the performance by your student. After selecting a point value for each category, the score is calculated for your student. You can then add a comment to communicate information to your student and then submit the grade.
