Starting on December 7, 2010, Blackboard and Joe’SS will both undergo important changes to improve the functionality of both systems.

  1. Two new columns will be created in Blackboard for all courses – JoeSS Midterm and JoeSS Final Grade. These columns allow instructors to retrieve grades directly from Blackboard into Joe’SS at midterm and at the end of the semester.
  2. A new button is available in the Grade Roster of Joe’SS – retrieve grades from blackboard. Clicking this button will automatically populate the Grade Roster in Joe’SS with grades from Blackboard.
  3. The Student ID column in Blackboard will automatically be populated with student numbers. This is the link between Joe’SS and Blackboard.

For more information on grading policies and Joe’SS, please contact the Registrar’s Office.
