Caveats and considerations for using Office Mix with Blackboard's Grade Center:
    • Students must click the final Turn In button at the end of the Mix in order for results to go back to the Grade Center.

    • Students will receive full points in the Grade Center if they answer all of the questions in your Mix (even if the answer is incorrect). As of August 2016, there is no way to assign partial points for students’ participation. Because of this, it is recommended that interactive lectures created in Office Mix are designed as low-stakes or ungraded learning activities.

    • Instructors can see more response analytics, such as the time each student spends on a slide and answers submitted, at the Office Mix website.
