Gradebook Access
The gradebook access assigned to an Instructor, Teaching Assistant, Teaching Assistant – Limited Bb or Admin Support in myWSU will be the same access for myWSU grading as well as Blackboard grading.  If you give a Teaching Assistant gradebook access in myWSU, they will be able to see the grade book in Blackboard as well as assign mid-term and final grades.  For the Tutor role only, if you give them grade book access in myWSU, they will not have gradebook access in Blackboard.

In the example below, this Instructor has been assigned as the Primary Instructor with gradebook access in both Blackboard and myWSU.

In the example below, the Instructor and Admin Support will have gradebook access in both Blackboard and myWSU.  However, the TA assigned will not have grade book access in either Blackboard or myWSU.
