Grading tests with Blackboard and Remark Test Grading

The Blackboard Connector for Remark Test Grading simplifies the process of grading tests with Blackboard and Remark Test Grading

Remark Test Grading makes it easy for instructors to generate and grade paper and online tests. Many schools and universities around the world trust Blackboard as the LMS (learning management system) they rely on to track student data, such as grades. The Blackboard Connector for Remark Test Grading is used to integrate the two solutions.

The Blackboard Connector for Remark Test Grading simplifies the interaction between these two systems by allowing instructors to pull class rosters and tests from Blackboard, process them in Remark Test Grading, and then automatically sync the grades back into the Blackboard gradebook. Grading tests with Blackboard and Remark Test Grading is easy with this powerful connector.

Blackboard with Remark Test Grading

Instructors pull in any desired classes from Blackboard. Then, create test stubs in Blackboard and link them in Remark Test Grading. After that, simply set up a matching answer sheet and process the tests in Remark. Finally, sync the grades back into the Blackboard gradebook. It is easy and efficient!


How this benefits administrators

From an administrator’s standpoint having the Blackboard Connector for Remark Test Grading eliminates much of their administrative duties. Simply connect the Remark account with Blackboard by providing information on your Blackboard server. Instructors then manage their own classes and tests. We eliminate the need for the Remark administrator to import classes and rosters. The administrator simply imports a list of instructors when setting up the system.

Blackboard always remains in charge of your data. Remark does not allow updating of class rosters, student names, or any other data that is pulled from Blackboard. The only changes that are made are the grades for tests, which are automatically pulled into Blackboard.

How this benefits instructors

Instructors log in to Blackboard the first time they access the Connector. Once the initial connection is made, the instructor imports Blackboard classes, which links a class from Blackboard to Remark. Student rosters are imported automatically at the connection time. Class rosters can be resynced at any time to accommodate new students in a class or to remove students who dropped a class.

For tests, instructors create test “stubs” in Blackboard and then link them to a Remark test. If linked, graded data is synchronized for this test with the click of a button. Or, if desired, any changes to the test are automatically sent to the Blackboard gradebook!

The Blackboard Connector saves your instructors time!

  • Transfer grades from Remark right into Blackboard’s gradebook.
  • Instructors manage their own classes/tests.
  • Eliminates manual entry of grades into Blackboard!
  • Students get their grades quicker.

It is quick to set up, easy to use, and a great value! Contact the Remark Team now for pricing for your organization!
