The long-requested grade passback feature connecting myCourses to Webcat is live!

by UNH AT Staff

The end of the semester can be a stressful time for students and faculty.  Students want to know their grade as soon as possible and faculty want to be responsive to student requests.  One piece of the grade reporting process is now easier for faculty who use the myCourses's gradebook to manage and share their grades throughout the semester.

 myCourses has a new feature that allows faculty to easily send final grades, as calculated in their myCourses gradebook, to Webcat.  A student’s grade in Webcat will match the final grade in myCourses with the push of a button. The only manual entry required in Webcat is for exception cases such as students receiving an incomplete grade or credit/fail courses.

This will not only save faculty time in not having to manually re-enter data they already have available, but will also reduce the possibility of mistakes in copying gradebook information to Webcat

There are still several opportunities to meet with Academic Technology staff to get help.
