New features offered in Blackboard version 9.1 include student portfolios, student review, and anonymous and delegated grading. Other features are safe assign building blocks, and significant figures in calculated formula test questions.
The new portfolio subsystem assists students reflecting on their work, and also monitors their studying habits. The student review feature makes it easy for faculty to review course content and student work. Anonymous and delegated grading is useful in eliminating favoritism in grade awarding.
Additionally, assignment and safe-assignment integration provides smooth and seamless workflow for the faculty. Questions grading has been automated and correct answers are reached using defined formulas.
