Final Grades Fall 2013: Reminders and Instructions

Instructor of Record, Grading Proxy, or Teaching Assistant:

Final grade rosters have been created, and you may now enter final grades in SIS. Final grades are due within 48 hours of the final exam, and no later 11 a.m. December 20, 2013. Below are quick instructions on how to access SIS and enter final grades as well as a list of contact information should you have questions. (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 http://www.case.edu/sis.

  • 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.

  • 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 Fall 2013 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.)

  • On the Grade Roster, you have the ability to select certain students and enter a grade to be added to those selected students. If all students are to receive the same grade (e.g., P), you can click the "Select All" link at the bottom of the page, choose the grade to be added from the drop down box and click the "add this grade to selected students" button.

  • Grade Rosters may be easily downloaded to Excel by clicking the download link at the bottom of your grade roster. Since individual browser settings may vary, if this does not work you may need to try a few things like holding down the control key while clicking on the download link or temporarily turning off pop-up blockers.

  • Class Rosters and Grade Rosters 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 upload grades directly from Blackboard to SIS (see Blackboard for instructions).

  • Midterm grades for undergraduate courses are now permanently available for advisors and students to view via the Grades page. These grades are available back to Fall 2008.

  • 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 completed.

Grades Upload from Blackboard

To benefit instructors who are currently using Blackboard to record their grades, we are introducing a new Grade Upload tool that will allow instructors to upload midterm and final grades from their Blackboard Grade Centers to SIS.

In order to upload grades from Blackboard to SIS, instructors must already have their final and/or midterm grades entered as letter grades in their Blackboard Grade Center. Once the grade information has been recorded in the course Grade Center, instructors can go to the Blackboard Wizard (http://www.case.edu/its/itac/BBWizard/) to access the Grade Upload Tool.

Please read the instructions and contact blackboard@case.edu if you have any questions.

(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 http://www.case.edu/sis.

  • 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.

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


  • The Advisor Center now has an email address column with links to mail directly to your advisees' email addresses. The student names are now links to view student details and the "View Student Details" link has been removed.

  • 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.

  • Coming soon - An interface between SIS and Blackboard will allow you to upload grades from Blackboard to SIS.
