EMA Integration: Changing the Points Possible for a Weighted Total column

Helpful tip!

Scenario:

For a RISIS Mode of Submission which creates a Weighted Total column in Blackboard i.e.

any Mode of Submission employing a Turnitin assignment: 
Electronic Document (Individual)
Digital Submission
Presentation (Individual) – Turnitin
Duplicate submission (Turnitin)
Physical Entity Submission

also Blackboard TestDiscussion forum, Flexible assessmentMultipart submission, Other.

The Module has been flagged as Ready in RISIS, the Integration has run and a Weighted Total column has been created in Blackboard.

It is discovered that the Points Possible specified in RISIS is incorrect.

Enhanced Grades Journey – from September 2019

  1. Change the assessment Points Possible in RISIS.
  2. If the Weighted Total column has not yet been mapped to any other columns, the Points Possible for the column will be updated.
    If the Weighted Total column has already been mapped to one or more columns you won’t see any changes in Blackboard.The Points Possible for a Weighted Total column are now based entirely on the Points Possible and relative weightings of the columns to which it is mapped.
    This means that when you send marks to RISIS, they will be calculated as a percentage of the actual Points Possible in Blackboard, not the Points Possible shown in RISIS.
