For the Record - Faculty Edition
We are all looking forward to celebrating the Class of 2013 on Sunday, May 12th at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, 415 Summer Street, Boston– we'll be offstage giving diplomas to students. We hope to see you there!
If you have any questions about the ceremonies, please visit the Commencement website for additional information.
Faculty can now begin submitting final grades for Spring 2013. Grades are due Monday, May 6th. All grades MUST be submitted by this deadline.
When: Any time between now and May 6th. No extensions, no exceptions.
Our students depend on timely submission of grades – you will delay students' graduation, degree progress, and potential employment by missing the deadline!
Where: eCommon – log in and select the Faculty tab. Log in now to make sure you can access eCommon. Login issues should be referred to the Help Desk at x8080 or email@example.com.
How: Review the Final Grading Instructions for a step-by-step guide to grade entry. Giving an incomplete? Read the last tab on "Entering Incomplete Grades." If you have any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
You've logged in to enter your grades, you've selected Final Grades and clicked Go in the Grade Assignment box and…nothing. You click on the course title and it only takes you to the online course listing. And it's not even displaying your correct section! You frantically call the Registrar's Office, only to find they are closed because it is 11 pm.
Ah, dear Grader, you've fallen into the legendary Green Triangle's devious clutches. This elusive creature ( ) appears next to your course title and serves as the gatekeeper to the realm of grading. Legend has it that the Green Triangle (Viride Trianguli) exists solely to frustrate well-intentioned instructors.
Gentle graders, beware! If a grade has already been entered for your course (i.e. a WP or WF), this cunning trickster appears in disguise as a Yellow Triangle ( ). But do not be deceived by this canary-hued imposter – it should still be used to enter grades!
Simply click on the Triangle (in either color) to foil this dastardly fiend and move forward to grade entry.
Faculty, did you give an incomplete grade in Fall 2012? Don't miss the deadline to get it changed!
Instructors must submit a completed Grade Change Form to the Registrar's Office on May 6th. Forms are available on eCommon and may be faxed to us at 617-824-8654, or scanned and emailed from your Emerson email account to email@example.com.
Incomplete grades from Fall 2012 will change to Incomplete/Failure grades on May 7, 2013.
Stop by the Registrar's Office for some snacks and a little grade entry! We'll have computers available for faculty who'd like to get help entering grades, and will answer questions about grading.
- When: Tuesday, 4/30 and Friday, 5/3, 10:00 am – 3:00 pm
- Where: Union Bank building, 216 Tremont Street, 2nd Floor
All visitors are welcome, even those with no grades to enter. We know that the end of the semester is a busy time, but hope you can take a break and stop by!
