How do I disable grading of the discussion board in Blackboard? (Staff)

To disable grading:

  • Under Control Panel, select Course Tools and Discussion Board.
  • Select your discussion board (this will normally be the module ID for your course)
  • Click on the arrows next to the desired forum and select Edit
  • Scroll down to Forum Settings.
  • Select No Grading.
  • If grades have already been entered for the forum or its threads, a warning message will appear stating "changing the setting will remove the associated Grade Centre Items".
  • Click OK to continue or click Cancel to preserve the Grade Centre Items.
