|Note spring midterm grade information|
Midterm grade rosters for spring 2008 will be available for entry of midterm deficiency grades by faculty beginning Thursday, Feb. 21.
Midterm deficiency grades for spring 2008 must be recorded in PeopleSoft by noon Friday, Feb. 29. At that point, the Registrar's Office will run a process to generate letters to all students for whom deficient grades are recorded (grades of D, F, or U). Any deficiency grades entered after that point will not be included in these notifications to students, and contacting those students becomes the responsibility of the course instructor.
Faculty should review every roster for midterm deficiencies, enter and save deficient grades, if any, and then change the roster status to "Ready For Review" and save it when they are finished with each roster. This status change signifies that the roster is "official" for midterm purposes.
The roster status should be changed to “Ready for Review” even when there are no deficiency grades to be recorded the class. After the midterm grade entry deadline, a report is sent to the Council of Deans that tabulates how many courses in each department were reviewed and how many had deficiencies recorded.
If faculty members can log in to PeopleSoft but cannot access a roster they are expecting to be able to update, they should contact Marge in the Registrar's Office at 777-2150. The cause usually has something to do with how instructor data is recorded in the PeopleSoft Schedule of Classes.
The instructions for midterm grading can also be accessed on the web at http://www.und.edu/dept/registrar/FacultyStaff/FacultyStaff.htm .
