Blackboard has advised that you should NOT use Grade Center and/or Needs Grading and/or Inline Grading while students in that same course are taking a Blackboard Test, because it will slow down response time dramatically for that course. If you co-teach and administering a Blackboard Test, please also nofify your colleagues to not use these features during that time.

Or, go to your course Control Panel > Customization > Properties > in #3 Set Course Duration, click in "Select Dates", click the end Date check box, then the End Date calendar icon, choose the end date, then click Submit.

If you need assistance from the Blackboard Team for your Fall/14 semester course, remember that you must put in your request no later than May 30, 2014, so we can plan accordingly. This means you put in your request and include all associated materials (files, marking schemes, quiz information, etc.) with your request.
- A request only, with materials coming later means your request is put into a queue and we work on it as we can, and in order.
