To view feedback and scores for a Blackboard assignment follow these instructions.
My Blackboard Scores
1. There are two ways to access your scores.
2. The easiest is to click on My Blackboard Scores from the My University of Southampton page within Blackboard. Then choose the course concerned.
Or via Global Navigation
3. Another way to see recent scores is to click on the scores icon available from the Global Navigation window.
Or via “Tools” menu
4. A further way is to enter a course, click on the Tools menu from and choose My Grades.
5. Click on the Graded tab to show only assessed marks. This helps to tidy up the list and focus only on attainment so far.

7. The options and icons are described across the following slides.
8. If a rubric was used you may click on View Rubric to see the full rubric and which marks you attained.
9. Clicking on the name of the assignment will bring up the Review Submission History screen. Here you will see your submission, and if marked online, your submission will show comments and annotations. These can be downloaded by clicking on the download button (next to the magnify icons).
10. Feedback and the score are also shown.
11. If you see an icon of a person’s head with a question mark within it then it means that your assignment was marked anonymously. This means that the person who marked your assignment did not know that it was you who had written it.
Your University username and password allow you to use University computers and online facilities. You can change your password or reset your password if you have forgotten it (in which case you will have to answer a security question as a check).
The University requires you to change your password every six months to help ensure your computing account is kept secure. You will be sent an email message when your password is due to be changed and if you are unable to do so within the six months since it was last changed, you can reset it as if it were a forgotten password.
Creating your computer account
For new students, the computer account is created as a part of the enrolment process.
New staff need to go to Subscribe to create an account.
When an account is created, the username is generated automatically and the password is chosen by you.
Changing or resetting your password and managing your contact details
Go to Subscribe to change or reset your password and see below for further information:
Staff should also use Subscribe to update contact details such as your telephone extension number and your office location.
Computing account removal and extensions
You are entitled to a computing account for as long as you are a member of staff or a student of the University. When you leave the University, you are normally given a grace period before your account expires to allow you to transfer any data you want to keep and you will be sent a email message two weeks before your account expires to warn you. In certain circumstances, a short extension may be granted to a recently expired account.
Office 365 and student email
Office 365 is available to all staff and students, including cloud storage with OneDrive for Business, Office Online applications and downloadable Office products. Office 365 also provides the email service for taught students. (Email for staff and research students is provided by an Exchange server and is typically accessed using Outlook or OWA.)
