For Faculty: Blackboard Smart View is a focused look at the Grade Center that shows only the columns that match a set of criteria. The view is saved for continued use. When the Grade Center includes a great number of students and columns, you can use Smart Views to quickly locate data and evaluate student performance for a particular module or assignment.

In your Grade Center, Blackboard creates two Smart Views for you automatically: Assignments and Tests. You can create additional Smart Views. For example, if you have combined two sections you may choose to create a Smart View for each of them.
