Final Grades

IMPORTANT:
  • Depending on your choice in the initial Grade Book set up, you must either release the Final Calculated Grade, or the Final Adjusted Grade. If you are unsure of your selection, you can check by going through your Setup Wizard, or through your Grade Book Settings. 
  • All grade rounding should be done by the instructor in onQ before sending the grades to Peoplesoft. Only whole numbers will be sent to Peoplesoft, everything after the decimal point will be removed.  (There is no automatic grade rounding in the Grade Export Tool).
  • Before Releasing the Final Grades to students in onQ, grades should be approved by the Head of Department or Department Chair in PeopleSoft. If you are unsure of the procedure, please consult with your departmental administrator.
