Sync Scores to Blackboard

After adding activity links from BlackboardĀ®, your students' MindTap scores sync to Blackboard based on your settings. If needed, you can also request a manual score sync to Blackboard.

Depending on which version of Blackboard you are using, you might not be able to manually edit scores imported from MindTap. If you can manually edit scores in Blackboard, they will not be overwritten by a grade sync.

  1. To open the gradebook, click Progress > Gradebook.
  2. Click Gradebook Actions > Force LMS Sync.
    • You can request a manual score sync only once every 24 hours.
    • Manual score syncs are performed after all current automatic syncs, not instantly.
  3. Select the assignment scores to sync to Blackboard.
    • To sync an individual assignment, select Selected Assignment and select the assignment from the dropdown.
    • To sync all assignments, select Full Gradebook.
    Note If you previously chose to sync only the overall course score to Blackboard and not the individual activity scores, these options are not available to you.
  4. Click Sync.

The selected assignment scores are queued for synchronization to Blackboard. Syncing your entire gradebook might take up to an hour.
