What's New

Fall 2017 - New Gradebook

Read more about the retirement of Gradebook 2 and the new Gradebook being used starting this semester.

Summer 2017 - Grade Submission

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.

If you have not yet submitted grades

Before you submit summer grades using an import from ReggieNet, we recommend that you take the following steps:

  1. Turn on the new Gradebook tool in ReggieNet (To add the new Gradebook your course site, select Site Info > Manage Tools, select it from the list, and then save).
  2. Set the new Gradebook to “Set Zero Score for Empty Cells" from the Course Grade drop-down menu.
  3. Import your grades into Faculty Center as usual.

(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

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.

If you need assistance with final grade submission, including re-submitting grades, please contact the Office of the University Registrar at (309) 438-2188 or GradeSubmission@ilstu.edu.

Future Semesters

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.
