The Grading Tool is a tool that lets you import your grades from Blackboard, instead of manually entering them into MyCU.

First step is to log into portal.cu-portland.edu, Instructors can follow the link from the intranet or on the dashboard of portal, clicking the link "Grading Tool"

Instructors will see the sections they have taught that ended within 2 weeks, grouped by start and end date. They should click "Submit Grades" for the sections they wish to grade.

While using BlackBoard is not required for this tool, it is designed to import grades, and apply a grading scale.

Once a scale is applied the drop down for the students letter grade will be applied.
