Where do I go to enter final grades?
Final grades can be entered on the final grade roster on the Albert faculty portal. Upon logging into Albert, navigate to the “My Courses” section of the Faculty/Advisor tab. Clicking on the Grade Roster icon (looks like a check mark) will take you to the grade roster page. If the icon is grayed out please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for additional assistance.
Which Approval Status should I use?
While you are in the process of entering final grades, the Approval Status should remain as "Save and Not Submit." When you have entered all grades on the grade roster, and you are ready for final grades to be visible to students, change the Approval Status to "Submit to Registrar," and then click the Save button. Important: you must click the Save button to ensure your grades are submitted properly.
What's the difference between the Approval Statuses of "Hold for Approval," "Save and Not Submit," and "Submit to Registrar?"
"Hold for Approval" is the Approval Status that should be selected if you are entering grades that must be approved by someone else (i.e. TA entering grades to be reviewed and approved by professor).
"Save and Not Submit" is the Approval Status that should be selected if are entering a grade for any student for the first time (i.e. not changing a grade). This Approval Status places the final grade roster into a draft/editable state, thus allowing the submission of new grades.
"Submit to Registrar" is the Approval Status that should be selected if you are ready to submit grades to be posted to students' records. Once this Approval Status is selected, the grade roster is in a locked state, and new grades cannot be entered. To enter new grades, make sure you revert the Approval Status to "Save and Not Submit."
Can I submit some grades now and then submit the remaining grades later?
Though this is not advised, you can submit some grades now and some grades later. To do this, enter the grades you are ready to submit and change the Approval Status to "Submit to Registrar," and click Save. When you wish to submit additional grades, revert the Approval Status to "Save and Not Submit," input additional grades, and change the Approval Status to "Submit to Registrar." Click Save again, and your additional grades will post to students' records.
Will I receive an email confirming my final grades were submitted successfully?
Yes! If you submit some (but not all) of the grades on your final grade roster, you will receive an email confirming receipt of some of your grades. This email will have a subject line that begins with, "Partial Grade Roster Received." If you submit all of the grades on your final grade roster, you will receive an email with a subject line that begins with, "Thank You for Submitting Your Grade Roster."
If you have submitted grades and do not receive a confirmation email, confirm that your grade roster saved the grades you entered.
Help! I submitted the wrong grade for a student and need to change the grade!
Once you submit a grade to the Registrar, the grade is officially "posted" to the student's record. To change an officially posted grade, please use the Request Grade Change button on the final grade roster. Refer to our Grade Changes guide for detailed instructions. Most grade change submissions must be approved by the academic department and/or dean's office of the course/school.
A student is missing from the final grade roster; where can I find them?
By default the grade roster displays 20 students at a time. If there is a student missing from the grade roster, clicking the “View All” or arrow buttons at the bottom of the page allows you to navigate to additional students.
How can students view their final grades?
Students will be able to view their midterm grades by logging into the Albert student portal and navigating to the “Grades and Transcripts” tab on the left-side menu.
