This guide covers how grades are synchronised from the ATLAS workspace into the linked Blackboard course's Gradebook.


What is this?

PebblePad Grade

With a PebblePad assignment added to a Blackboard course, it's possible to synchronise the grades between the two platforms.

When an instructor adds a grade to a submission in the ALTAS workspace, this information is automatically passed back to Blackboard and added to the related Gradebook column.

Students can access their grade either from the Blackboard Gradebook, or from their PebblePad Asset Store.
