Sync WebAssign Scores to Blackboard

For WebAssign building block version 2.0.1 and later, you can sync the assignment scores from your linked WebAssign course to your Blackboard® course. This sync is one-way only from WebAssign to Blackboard.

Syncing scores to Blackboard lets you and your students view all scores in Blackboard. The scores synced to Blackboard come from ScoreView and not GradeBook. Only raw scores and assignment names for past due assignments are imported from WebAssign to Blackboard.

Important The syncing of categories do not carry over from WebAssign to Blackboard. If you change a category, for example Homework, the next time GradeBook syncs it will create another entry for the assignment in the WebAssign category effectively showing the assignment twice.
Best Practice Let your students know how frequently you plan to sync scores to Blackboard to avoid complaints that they do not see their recent scores for WebAssign assignments.
  1. Sign in to Blackboard as an instructor.
  2. In Blackboard, click Courses.
  3. Click the Blackboard course name.
  4. Click Control Panel to expand the menu.
  5. Click Course Tools to expand the menu, and then click WebAssign.

    If the WebAssign tool isn't shown, see Show the WebAssign Course Tool.

  6. Click Import Grades.

Your students' assignment scores for the course are copied to Blackboard.

Important Blackboard user roles must be mapped to either instructor or student roles in WebAssign. User data is not synced correctly with WebAssign if the Blackboard roles are not correctly mapped. Contact your Blackboard administrator if you suspect this might be a problem.
