Did You Know?
You will submit RC grades as usual (see instructions here)
Be sure all grades are published by completely filling in the green circles.
Then you will need to wait for the calculator to run before you can see the SEM averages; it isn't instantaneous. Here are SEM grade instructions. PLEASE TALK TO AN ADMINISTRATOR before making changes to SEM grades. They may want you to change assignment grades inside a six weeks to affect the change. We do not generally overwrite and change SEM grades themselves.
Please remember the guidelines from Administration regarding incompletes and failing grades.
If you have any policy questions, please direct those to an administrator. I am your "how to" girl! If something weird is going on, please email me AND Lisa Grey.
Incompletes will need to be resolved by Jan 14.
The grade change form can be found here. You will use this after the 4pm deadline on January 7th.
We will be having some Canvas trainings starting in January, so keep an eye out, but there is also video training that will be available soon inside Canvas itself!
For those wondering what on Earth Canvas is, it is a learning management system that creates an online space where you can post resources for students, collect and grade their work, give online quizzes, create discussion forums, create a calendar that integrates with Google and Outlook calendars, etc. And there are a lot of little things that will make this a really useful addition to your toolbox.
