My company recently started using Blackboard for our learning and development department. We have quizzes and trainings that our employees take. Once the quizzes are complete we would like to see how people did based on how long they have been at the company. We have set birth date as hired date. Is there a way to include birth date as a column in Results Center and create a smart view that will show us how people people who were "born" prior to a certain date preformed on the quiz?
You can create column where the grade is stored as "text", so the column can record pretty much anything you want, but there's no built-in "date" handling. However, if you use a format for the date that also makes sense to filter/sort as an integer value, such as YYYYMMDD (that is, "20110316" for today's date), you should also be able to create a SmartView that filters on that column as if it were a numeric grade and looks for "grades" above or below a certain value.
Does that help?
