End of Term Checklist
- Remind students to complete the Student Rating of Teaching (SRT) and any other course evaluation instruments. The SRT will be available the last two weeks of instruction.
- Verify access to your grade roster(s) in MyU – don’t wait until grades are due (see below).
- Check to see that you have applied a grading scheme.
- Review point values and grading schema to make sure they support the grading plan outlined in the syllabus. Verify values for weighted categories, if used.
- Remove unused assignments or assignment groups in your gradebook.
- Post grades for all assignments.
- If using “exclude empty grades” setting, check that all students scores, including zeros, have been entered.
- Are there Incompletes?
Submit Grades (due dates vary)
- Review grading resources from Academic Support Resources.
- Select your preferred method for final grade entry:
- Option 1: Manually enter the final grades into your course grade roster in MyU. This option may be easiest for very small classes.
- Option 2: Send Grades to PeopleSoft, an automated option that enables you to send your grades directly from Canvas to PeopleSoft, and is useful for most courses. Video: Send Grades to PeopleSoft (YouTube, 2:29 mins)
- Option 3: Export Final Grades for Upload, a process to download the gradebook from Canvas into a spreadsheet and then upload to PeopleSoft. This option may be most useful for courses that use complex grading algorithms not accommodated by the Canvas gradebook.
- For further assistance contact the Student Records Training and Support Team at (612) 625-2803 or email@example.com.
- All courses have Canvas sites, which are automatically created four months prior to each semester. There is no need to request one. These course sites will be empty when they are first created. You can either add content within the course shell or copy content from a previous Canvas course or development site. Unused Canvas sites remain hidden from students.
