Grade entry for the fall 2015 term


Grade rosters will be available in the Mosaic Faculty Centre on December 7.

Grade entry changes

There have been a number of improvements to the grade entry system since last term.

  • The link between Avenue to Learn and Mosaic has been improved and should now allow grade transfer for all classes.
  • For undergraduate classes, instructors will only be able to submit fully completed grade rosters (partially completed rosters will not be accepted)
  • Grades approved for the status of ‘INC’ will be entered by the administrator in the appropriate Faculty Office. UPDATE Dec. 8 — instructors may place a grade of "INC" for graduate courses only. For undergraduate courses "INC" grades must be placed by the faculty office.
  • Faculty office approvers will receive email notifications of grade changes that are submitted and instructors will receive notification of grade changes returned/rejected
  • New ability to add a note to a grade change (submission and return/rejection)
  • Ability to look up "Not Submitted" grade rosters

About teaching assistants

Your teaching assistant will not have access to your classes in Mosaic unless you specifically request it. An instructor might do this if they expect a teaching assistant to enter grades, for example. Your department's administrator can assign a teaching assistant to a class on your behalf.

Updated documentation

1) Quick tip sheets:

2) A detailed guide on submitting grades and navigating the Faculty Centre

All of these materials are also available in the Avenue to Learn course "Mosaic Information for Faculty Members." PDF versions are also available on the Mosaic homepage in "Instructor Tips."
