How do I create an assignment in Blackboard?
Open the area of your course where you want the assignment to be located (usually the Assignments area, or in a weekly learning module area). Once you are where you want to create the assignment, go to Assessments, then chose Assignment.

From here, there are multiple options to fill out.

For information on creating a rubric, click here: FAQ 69

The assignment is now created. You will see it on the page you created it (will be the last item in order). You will also see a purple success bar at the top.

There will also be a column for the assignment with the correct number of points possible created automatically in the Grade Center upon successful creation of the assignment.
