How to Export MindTap Grades into Blackboard


Export Blackboard Gradebook

  1. Log into your Blackboard account.

  2. Select your course from the course list on the right:

  3. Select Full Grade Center under Control Panel -> Grade Center at the bottom, left side of the screen:

  4. Choose Download from the Work Offline drop down menu:

  5. Under Options, select Comma for Delimiter Type. Everything else on the page can be left the same. Click Submit:

  6. Click DOWNLOAD on the next page:

  7. Select a download location for the file. You will need to access it at a later time:

    • Please Note: The file name will be similar to: gc_CourseName_fullgc_Date_Time.csv

  8. Here is an example of what the exported Blackboard Grade Center file will look like:

Export MindTap GradeBook

  1. Launch your MindTap course (via Blackboard):

  2. Click on the Progress app on the left hand side:

  3. Click on Manage, and then Export on the right hand side:

  4. Select Comma Separated Values (.csv) for the export format and Points for the grade format. Click Export:

Merging the Two Gradebook Exports

  1. Open the file downloaded from Blackboard.

  2. Open the file downloaded from MindTap.

  3. On the MindTap export, delete the three rows beneath the Assignment Name. These rows are not needed within Blackboard. These three rows will typically say:

    • Graded/Practice

    • Assessment/Homework

    • Max Points

  4. Select the assignments and grades you would like copied into Blackboard. Do not copy the first column (Column A) that includes the student name. Keep in mind we are still working within the MindTap export:

  5. Open the Blackboard export. Paste the copied assignments/grades from the MindTap export into the Blackboard export. Make sure the grades align with the correct names:

  6. Save the Blackboard export onto your computer once more. This is the file we will be uploading back into Blackboard.

Upload New Spreadsheet to Blackboard

  4. Click Submit:

  5. Select which columns to upload and click Submit:

  6. The students’ grades under the Grade Center are now updated:
