FAQs - Grading
- How is grading done?
All grades are to be submitted online, using iSIS or iSIS and K-State Online.
For faculty using K-State Online, final grades for a class may be entered into K-State
Online and then submitted to iSIS via an electronic interface. For detailed information
on submitting final grades through K-State Online, see Copy Final Grades from K-State Online to iSIS.
For faculty not using grading in K-State Online, final grades are entered directly
into iSIS by the faculty member or authorized designee. For detailed information on
submitting final grades through iSIS, see Enter and Approve Final Grades in iSIS.
Once a final grade is submitted to iSIS, whether through K-State Online or directly,
the faculty member must verify and approve the final grade in iSIS. On the designated
date, iSIS will post the approved grades to the student's academic history.
- How are grade changes done?
Starting Spring 2012 faculty and instructors can submit grade changes in iSIS. This
enhancement replaced the manual grade change forms, saving faculty and instructors
valuable time. Some restrictions apply. See the Request Grade Change page for details.
- What is the difference between the roster grades and official grades?
The roster grade is the grade that was originally submitted as a final grade by the
instructor via the online grade roster. The official grade is the current grade in
iSIS and that would be included on the transcript. In most cases, these will be the
same, except for a grade change processed after the final online approval of the instructor.
