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.
