Navigating the application:
1.  Your courses will appear at the top of the screen. If you are submitting Midterm Grades, be sure to select that heading at the top, left. The default is Final Grades.  
  • You can sort your class lists by clicking on the sorting arrows next to each column heading. 
Note: By default, only ten courses are displayed. In the bottom right, you can navigate to the next page or change how many classes appear on a page.

3.  The names of the first 25 students in your class will display.  Go to the lower right corner to navigate to the next page (arrow key) or change how many students are displayed on this page.

5.  To add a grade, select the student and their grade from the dropdown menu. Then move on to the next student. 
  • Note: You can only change grades during the open grade window.  If the grading window has closed, you will be unable to change grades using this tool.
6. For Incomplete or X grades (only available for final grades), please click on these links for specific instructions.  
7.  If you are interrupted while you are entering grades, click the Save button (bottom right).  This saves the grades you have entered so far. 
  • If the screen times out and you have not saved the grades, they will be lost and you will need to enter them again.  
8.  Students who have withdrawn from the course will remain on your roster, with the words Not Gradable showing on their line of the roster.  
9.  When you are finished entering grades, click Save (bottom right).  
10.  If you click on the Reset button, a warning will appear in the upper right corner of the screen. If you click Yes, all your unsaved changes will be cleared.   Click Cancel to return without deleting anything. 
11.  Refresh your screen, then look at the Grading Status column at the top of the page. This shows your progress towards submitting grades for all the students in your courses. 
  • You can sort your list of classes by clicking on the arrow keys next to Grading Status.  
12.  You can return and make changes to the grading until the word Completed appears next to the course under the Rolled by the Registrar heading. 
  • To make changes to grades after they have rolled, you will need to contact the Registrar's office.
