Group Assignment Submission Date SS 1

There is a known bug dealing specifically with group assignments with the current Service Pack (SP6) that the Blackboard Learn system is utilizing. This problem currently has a fix with an upgrade to SP8. Ferris is currently in the process of testing SP8, but does not have an expected date as to when this will be installed on production systems. For example in the screen shot above all groups submitted their assignment on 2/26/2012, however, the Needs Grading area is incorrectly reporting when the assignment is submitted.

There is a work around so that faculty can view the correct submission date. Follow the steps below to see the actual submission date.

  1. Go into the Full Grade Center.

This group assignment was submitted on 2/15/12.
