Grading Students

Enter final grades in the "Grade" column. Valid grades that can be issued: A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D, D-, F, and I (incomplete). You may enter all final grades at once, or enter some grades now and some later. After entering the grades, click SUBMIT. Grades are verified the following business day.

If you try to change a grade that has already been verified, you will get an error message telling you that the grades(s) cannot be changed. If you get this message and you see that a grade is in error, you will need to fill out the on-line Grade Change form. The on-line Grade Change form can be found under the "Forms for Faculty" link in MyDelta for "Faculty". Complete the form and click "Submit". The form will automatically be sent to the Dean's Office for approval. Once approved, the form is forwarded to the Registrar's Office.

DROPPED
A "W" will automatically appear in the GRADE column for all students who have officially dropped a course. You do not need to assign a grade (the grade is already there). If you try to change this grade and submit it, you will receive an error message and none of the grades you submitted will go through (you will need to re-enter the grades).  You must put in the LDoA.  If the student never attended, use the day before the section start date.

Incompletes
An appropriate request for an Incomplete grade is for unfinished course work after 4/5 of the course (twelfth [12th] week of a fifteen [15] week semester).

Never Attended

***If a student is a never attend, you MUST drop the student through the Instructor Initiated Drop form during the drop period.
 If a student is dropped as a never attend, LDoA is required.  Use the day before the section start date for LDoA.

For CNET/INET courses, be sure to follow the federal government’s definition of attendance:

  • that the activity is academic or academically related, and
  • Academically related activities include but are not limited to —
  • physically attending a class where there is an opportunity for direct interaction between the instructor and students;
  • submitting an academic assignment;
  • taking an exam, an interactive tutorial or computer-assisted instruction;
  • attending a study group that is assigned by the school;
  • participating in an online discussion about academic matters; and
  • initiating contact with a faculty member to ask a question about the academic subject studied in the course.

Academically related activities do not include activities where a student may be present but not academically engaged, such as —

  • logging into an online class without active participation; or
  • participating in academic counseling or advisement.

Last Date of Attendance

When completing your grading process, please remember to enter the Last Date of Attendance for students who received a W, WI or F grade in your class. A student may not be entitled to the full amount of their federal financial aid award if they never physically attended a class or did not attend the entire semester.
