Automatic Transfer of Student Final Grades from Blackboard Learn to PeopleSoft
This feature allows student final grades including letter grades, incompletes, and satisfactory / unsatisfactory that are entered into the Grade Center of a Blackboard class shell to be automatically transferred to PeopleSoft. Once a grade is transferred from Blackboard Learn to PeopleSoft, any changes to that grade must be done in PeopleSoft. Currently, this process does not accommodate "No Shows." These will still need to be entered directly into PeopleSoft.
