Entering Final Grades

Entering your final grades should be a quick and relatively painless process.  If you have any difficulties grading your classes, please contact Mark Jacek

  1. Log in to Academica and click on the the "Final Grades" option in the Faculty Instructional Resources menu.
  2. Select the grading term from the drop down menu and select "Submit."  Make sure you select the term you need to grade -- otherwise, you will receive an error message saying your class lists aren't available.  
  3. Select the course from the drop-down menu and select "Submit."
  4. This will bring up your Final Grading sheet. Please scroll down the page to see the list of students.
  5. For each student, use the drop down menu to select the appropriate grade. 
    • Federal regulations require that students who receive financial aid MUST earn their aid by completing the semester.  In order for Wayne State to remain in compliance with federal regulations, a last date of attendance must be entered for any student receiving a failing grade (F, N, U, UNC) or an Incomplete. If you assign any of these grades and DO NOT list a last date of attendance, NONE of the grades will be submitted.
    • Students that have never attended classes should be assigned the mark "NA" (never attended).  This mark will be converted to the appropriate failing grade for your course.  DO NOT enter a last date of attendance in this case.
    • What is the date of last attendance?  The latest date that the student physically attended class; submitted an academic assignment; took an exam, interactive tutorial, or computer-aided instruction; attended a study group that you assigned; participated in an online discussion about academic matters; or initiated contact with you to ask a question about the academic subject studied in the course
    • If attendance cannot be documented through actual attendance records or an academically-related event, you must report that the student never attended.
  6. You may have to click to view the next page of your grade roster, if your class is large. 
  7. Once you have graded all the students select the "Submit" button.
  8. To select another course please select "CRN Selection" at the bottom of the page.
