Record-setting grade submissions for winter quarter 2010

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.
