Midterm Grades and Evaluations

Midterm grading is available for Spring 2015.

Midterm grading is primarily for warning students in danger of failing the course.  All midterm warnings must be submitted on WebAdvisor by Friday April 3.

Faculty have the ability to enter mid-term grades and evaluations directly in WebAdvisor (replacing the use of the paper Mid-Term Reports).  A corresponding warning comment must be completed for each student to whom a ‘U: unsatisfactory’ grade is assigned.  Additionally, faculty may wish to enter comments for students in other circumstances, such as those doing exceptionally well (in this case no grade need be entered).  Notification of the evaluation is emailed to the student and their advisors prompting them to view WebAdvisor.
