  • Click Download and select where to save the Gradebook file. Downloading an assessment's data doesn't remove any information from the Gradebook in Blackboard
  • The results of a survey can be downloaded for statistical analysis. Analysis is done through another application. Only the results of Multiple Choice and True / False questions are included in a results download because these questions have a limited set of defined answers.
  • This file can be uploaded to a Gradebook in Blackboard at a later date.
