Choose create column, and then add a name, description if desired, primary or secondary display, point value, rubric, due date, and options. Hit submit, and you should now see the column in your grade center display. You can also experiment with creating calculated columns, which are useful if you use weights in your course.If you choose to have students submit assignments via blackboard drop boxes, those will be automatically populated to the grade book.
