Most courses use the Standard grading scheme of A, B, C, D, F with the course counting toward the students GPA and hours earned counting toward graduation. But sometimes a course does not count in GPA or toward graduation (for example a pre-college level math class taken in preparation for college level work.) A few other courses have special rules that allow the grade to count in GPA but not in hours toward graduation. In order to have Banner process these grades correctly, a different grading scheme is used with an X preceding the grade (XA, XB, etc) when the course does not count in GPA or hours, and an R preceding the grade (RA, RB, etc) when the course does count in GPA but not in hours. Those grades are what faculty will see in the drop down options for grades in the roster.
We do not have a mechanism for submitting midterm grades late because they are processed differently than final grades. Midterms never move to the transcript so to “capture” that information ITS runs the “midterm freeze” and freezes those grades to a table. The reports generated by the student success center are produced from the freeze tables. Since the freeze occurs at the close of the day grades are due we cannot change the data after the fact. The main thing is to communicate with your students so they know what their mid-term grade is and can plan accordingly.
If grades were not submitted by the deadline you should submit grade changes from the current “X” (indicating a missing grade) to the correct grade. To submit a grade change use the Grade Change link under the Faculty Services tab in PAWS.
