Online grade submission for Spring 2012 classes is open.
Grades are due at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 12.
Online submission will close at that time.
More information about grading, including links to instructions for using GradeBook and GradePage, can be found in our Grade Submission Newsletter Spring 2012.
In Winter quarter of 2012, 92.5% of all grades came in on time! This figure represents the best on-time submission of grades the University has seen since we started tracking this data four years ago.
The Office of the Registrar thanks all staff and faculty that have worked to make this success possible.
Winter quarter 2010 boasted not one but two records for grade submissions, according to analysis performed after the grade submission period closed Monday afternoon:
- 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.
- 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.
This post is another update to a previous entry, available here: Faculty: Spring into web grading this quarter.
It’s the day after grades were due for Spring quarter and the verdict is in: web grading is a hit! It’s amazing how quickly faculty embraced this new process, which indicates its usefulness for everyone involved in the grading process.
Spring quarter grades by submission type: Over 50% submitted by web grading!
Just over half 51% of grades for the quarter came in through Web GradeBook. That’s an impressive statistic considering this is the first quarter for which online submission has been widely available (a “soft rollout” was available Winter 09, but not heavily advertised). We look forward to this number increasing over the next few quarters as more faculty discover the convenience and benefit to students of web grading.
The Office of the University Registrar thanks all those faculty who submitted their grades via web grading, and to Catalyst, the Office of Information Management, UW Technology, and everyone else who helped bring this project to fruition.
Today Monday, June 15 is the deadline for grade submission for Spring quarter. Please make sure all grades are submitted by one of the following times:
- 10 a.m. for grades submitted by paper-based Faculty Grade Reports (more info)
- 5 p.m. for grades submitted by Web GradeBook (more info)
Remember, students count on timely submission of grades for financial aid, acknowledgement of scholastic achievement, and other reasons. However, if you do miss the deadline, please read follow the instructions for paper-based grading or web-based grading.
