Problem: When trying to generate a report in Grade Center, the users in the ‘Selected User’ section are not ordered.
Solution: There is no workaround for this issue. Bb has identified this as a bug, but we have no indication of a fix in the foreseeable future.
Problem: When editing a group set, the list of students will not sort by last name (or other criteria) as expected.
Solution: This is a defect, but Blackboard has not indicated a future release in which it may be fixed. In the meantime, a workaround is to open the Grade Center in a separate tab or window, select the students in the Group Set using a smart view, and sort them as needed. In the other browser window, the group set can be managed normally.
Problem: Increasing the font size in some versions of Firefox causes the last name in the Grade Center to disappear from view (the student is still in the course, just not visible in the Grade Center).
Solution: This is resolved in a future version of Blackboard. In the meantime reducing the font size or clicking on the “Screen reader” link above the Grade Center will reveal the hidden student.
Students with the same first and last names within a course are indistinguishable in areas such as the discussion board, groups management, messages, and email. This is a long standing bug in Blackboard, for which we are awaiting a resolution.
