Record-setting grade submissions for winter quarter 2010

By admin

Winter quarter 2010 boasted not one but two records for grade submissions, according to analysis performed after the grade submission period closed Monday afternoon:

  1. An amazing 91% of all courses had grades submitted on time. That’s the highest percentage ever and represents a large jump over previous quarters.
  2. Additionally, just over 81% of all grades came in on time and that’s also a record-setting percentage for this metric.

These numbers mean more students than ever are receiving their grades in a timely manner and University processes that rely on a quarter’s grades can run more smoothly. The Office of the University Registrar sincerely thanks the faculty for this significant improvement in on-time grade submissions.

Use of Catalyst Web GradeBook (WGB) for grade submission (instead of by paper-based Faculty Grade Reports) also nudged up in winter 2010. Autumn 2009 had 65% of all grades submitted online via WGB; winter 2010 came in at 66%. Even though it was only up by a percentage point, this shows that online grade submission is still gaining acceptance on campus.
