Students need feedback on assignments, but unless you utilize the Blackboard Assignment tool, that may be difficult. For example, you have an assignment that is faxed and cannot be submitted online. You could still use the Assignment tool for grading and feedback. Type the assignment information inside the item window and click Submit. In the gradebook, place zeros in each of the students' grade window. Once this is done, you can go back when they submit the work, view the item, assign the grade, and add feedback.
