Download Assignment Submissions in Bulk


With Assignments, Blackboard provides enhanced item management options, including bulk downloading and cleanup of these files.

To download multiple student files at once, follow the steps below:

  1. Click Grade Center on the Control Panel, then select Full Grade Center on the expanded menu.
  2. Click on the Options drop-down menu button in the assignment heading.
  3. Click Assignment File Download.
  4. Select the checkbox next to all students whose files you wish to review and grade and click Submit.
  5. Blackboard will create a zipped file of the selected assignments for download. Right-click on the Download assignments now link and save the file.
  6. Unzip the file to view individual student papers.
  7. Now you can read, mark, and grade the files/papers. If desired, you can save the newly edited paper to your computer and then upload them back into Blackboard with each student’s grade so they can see your markings.
