Once a class has ended, you can submit final grades for students from inside the LMS.
Before final grades can be submitted, ensure that the following criteria are met:
- The class has ended (Your current time is past midnight on the final day of the course).
- All content has been graded and published.
- The only exceptions to this rule are content labeled as exempt. If an item is exempt from grading, there will be a visible blue button to indicate this.
- To ensure that all grades are published, click the menu icon in the Final Grade column, and select Publish All.
- Once final grades are eligible to be submitted, a Ready icon will appear in the Final Grade column for each eligible student.
- Click the Push button to submit all eligible final grades.
- The submission process may take a few minutes to complete. Once it has finished, you will see an icon that says Completed next to each completed student.
- Check to ensure that all grades submitted successfully. If a grade was eligible for submission but did not submit successfully, it will have icon that says Error. Hovering over the error icon will populate the specific error message that caused the problem.
A student may ask you to submit an Incomplete Grade for them. This is like a placeholder grade that allows the student additional time to complete final assignments in the class. Incomplete Grades are not designed to assist students who have fallen behind in class and want to submit missing assignments, but rather for students that have a passing grade during the last week of class and experience extreme circumstances that prevent them from completing the final assignment(s). Four weeks after the last day of class, you must submit a final grade for the student or the Incomplete Grade will automatically convert to an "F".
If you need to submit an Incomplete Grade, the method will change based on if final grades have been submitted or not:
- If final grades have been submitted, submit a Grade Change Form for the student.
- If final grades have not been submitted yet, submit the student's grade through the Faculty Portal.
