Online grading allows faculty and departments to submit grades from anywhere with an Internet connection. Grade rosters display up-to-date enrollment information, e.g., late adds and "W" grades. Completed grade rosters are available for viewing on the web indefinitely. Primary instructors can authorize others, including administrative assistants and T.A.s, to assist with grading.
