Final Grades Summer 2010

Instructors of Record, Grading Proxies and Teaching Assistants:

Final grade rosters have been created and you may now enter final grades in the Student Information System (SIS). Final grade rosters are generated only for classes with enrollments. Final grades are due within 48 hours of the final exam, and no later than 12pm July 29, 2010. (Note that some sessions, programs, departments, or schools may have an earlier or later deadline depending on various factors.)


Steps for Accessing SIS and Entering Grades

  • Access SIS at

  • Sign in with your Case Network ID and password (the same ID and password you would use to access most secured university web sites).

  • From the Faculty Center scroll down to the My Teaching Schedule grid and select the Grade Roster Icon directly to the left of the section you wish to grade.

  • Be sure that the Grade Roster Type is "Final Grade", and enter grades for each student in the Roster Grade drop down box.

  • When grades have been entered, set Approval Status drop down to "Approved" (Proxies choose "Ready for Review".) (Selecting Approval Status of "Approved" automatically saves grades so that a secondary step of clicking the "Save" button is not required.)

Once grades are approved and saved, they will be posted to student records within a maximum of 24 hours. Students and advisors will be able to view final grades in SIS by visiting the Student Center and clicking on Grades in the Academic drop down box then selecting the Summer 2010 term.


Helpful SIS Tips

  • Grades may be entered by either mouse or keyboard. To enter grades by mouse, click on the grade drop down box and then click on the appropriate grade. To enter grades by keyboard, navigate to the first student's grade drop down box, enter a grade using your keyboard, and tab three times to get to the next student's grade drop down box. (Mac users tab once.)

  • Grade Rosters may be easily downloaded to Excel by clicking the "Download" link at the bottom of the page. Since individual browser settings may vary, you may need to temporarily turning off pop-up blockers.

  • SIS times out after 60 minutes, so if you are interrupted in the middle of entering grades, please click save so that you do not lose any work.


You Asked. We Listened.
We receive helpful feedback from faculty regarding SIS. As a result of this feedback, we have made the following modifications to SIS:

  • Class Rosters and Grade Rosters now have an email address column with links to mail directly to your students' email addresses. This will also be useful when rosters are downloaded to Excel as you will have the email addresses for your class to create a mailing list outside of SIS.

  • You may now upload grades directly from Blackboard to SIS (see Blackboard for instructions).
