This message is for staff marking group assignments using EMA workflow B1 (the marks and feedback batch upload tool in Blackboard). Group assignments are where one student submits on behalf of a group.
An issue was recently identified as potentially affecting a small number of courses with group assignments due to have feedback bulk uploaded.
We are pleased to say that this has been fixed by Blackboard.
Feedback for group assignments can now be bulk uploaded as normal using EMA workflow B1.
If you have any questions please contact the Digital Education Office.
