Online ENG 1002 Final Grades

THANK YOU ALL for a great online semester (and for some of you, a great academic year). Even if we never got to meet in person, I enjoyed seeing your writing and analysis skills progress over the last few months. I hope to see you around campus in the fall, or next year, depending on your graduation schedule, please look me up and introduce yourself!!

Otherwise, I wish you all a great summer and a future filled with accomplishment. Here’s what to expect as far as grades and “official” final grades:

  1. I’ll be grading research papers through tomorrow afternoon, posting those and final grades as I go. You will also see that I’ve added a Blackboard grade column called FINAL GRADE. Once I finish correcting your research paper, I will put in the FINAL GRADE that will reflect the grade I will give you in the course.
  2. All FINAL GRADES should be posted to Blackboard by the close of day tomorrow, May 13. Email me if you have any questions or concerns.
  3. Remember, IVCC only has A, B, C, D, and F as final grades, so you will receive an A in the course for any “RUNNING GRADE” of an A or percentage from 90-100; you will receive a B in the course for any “RUNNING GRADE” of a B or percentage from 80-89 and so on. I will officially give you a letter, not a percentage.
  4. If you have any questions or concerns about grades, please notify me on or before noon, Monday, May 15, so I have time to make any necessary changes before officially posting grades to WebAdvisor. If you contact me with grade concerns or mistakes after May 15th, I will still be able to change a grade “in the system” (assuming the concern is valid and not too late after the end of the semester) but it will take some time, which occasionally slows transfers to 4-year institutions or enrollment in summer/fall/future classes.
  5. I plan to officially post grades the early morning of Tuesday, May 16.
  6. Here’s how you can view your final grades for this and previous/future IVCC classes by logging into WebAdvisor.

ENG 1002 Final Grades

Spring 2017 final semester grades on Blackboard now represent the letter grade I’ll officially give you in the course. As mentioned during the final exam period, THANK YOU for an excellent semester!! You are hard workers and I enjoyed seeing your writing and analytical skills improve over the last few months. I wish you all a relaxing summer and a future filled with academic, professional, and personal accomplishment 🙂
Please note the following:

  1. Your FINAL GRADE is your RUNNING GRADE with any necessary reductions for absences (see the policy on my syllabus). If you have grading questions or concern, email or message me by noon Monday, May 15.
  2. Please note that IVCC only has A, B, C, D, and F as final grades, so you will receive an A in the course for any percentage from 90-100; you will receive a B in the course for any percentage from 80-89 and so on. I officially give you a letter, not a percentage.
  3. If you have any questions or concerns about grades, please notify me on or before Monday, May 15 at noon so I have time to make any necessary changes before “officially” entering grades to WebAdvisor. If you contact me with grade concerns or mistakes after Monday at noon, I will still be able to change a grade “in the system” (assuming the concern is valid and not too late after the end of the semester) but it will take some time, which occasionally slows transfers to 4-year institutions or enrollment in spring/future classes.
  4. I plan to officially post grades to WebAdvisor the morning of Tues., May 16. You should be able to view them “in the system” within 24-28 hours of that time.
  5. Here’s how you can view your final grades for this and previous/future IVCC classes by logging into WebAdvisor.

Final Grades and Degree Progress

IVCC final semester grades, GPA and degree progress information is on WebAdvisor as well as information about any courses you’ve transfer here from other institutions. Many instructors use Blackboard throughout the semester to post, tally, and show student grade progress, but Blackboard is not available more than a few days after the semester ends.

When looking for current or past grades, here’s the process; and please note that it can take 24-48 hours for a grade to appear on WebAdvisor after an instructor has officially posted it.

Viewing final grades and GPA:

  • Go to www.ivcc.edu/webadvisor and select WebAdvisor for Students.
  • Log in with your K-number and WebAdvisor password (it’s not your Blackboard password).
    • if you have never used WebAdvisor before, you’ll need to set up your account;
    • here’s the general FAQs page
    • go to the student help desk in the Learning Commons in D201 for one-on-one help.
  • Select the option “Grade Point Average by Term.”
    • sometimes it takes 24-28 hours after faculty post grades before they are available, so if you’re checking at the very end of the semester, you might have to check back a few times.
  • Enter the term for which you’d like to view grades.
  • This will provide the individual class grades, the semester GPA, the number of credits earned, and the number of grade points earned (used for GPA).
  • If a grade is not visible, it has not been entered or verified by the instructor.
