Read more about the retirement of Gradebook 2 and the new Gradebook being used starting this semester.
A few instructors have encountered an issue when using the old Gradebook 2 tool. When items in Gradebook 2 are set to “Give ungraded no credit,” the zero scores do not translate into final grade submission. This may result in higher grades being recorded with the Registrar’s Office than appear in ReggieNet.
This issue only affects those who used the older Gradebook 2 this summer and have or will directly import grades from ReggieNet into the Faculty Center grade submission screen.
Those who only used the new tool (called, simply, Gradebook) or who choose to enter final grades by hand are unaffected.
Before you submit summer grades using an import from ReggieNet, we recommend that you take the following steps:
(Please note: If you need assistance adding and configuring the new Gradebook in ReggieNet, please contact CTLT at CTLT@ilstu.edu or (309) 438-2542.
If you have already submitted grades that you imported from ReggieNet, we suggest you log into Faculty Center and compare what you see in ReggieNet with what was reported to the Registrar’s Office. If you find a discrepancy, you can manually change and re-submit final grades.
Alternatively, you can follow the steps above, re-import from ReggieNet, and re-submit final grades.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this issue may cause. It is an unanticipated side-effect of having two grade book tools available for your use. As you may know, the older Gradebook 2 will no longer be available starting in the fall semester. If you would like to learn more about the new Gradebook tool, please consult CTLT’s ReggieNet Support pages or consider attending an upcoming clinic.
