How do I post official midterm or end-of-term grades?

To post midterm or end-of-term grades you’ll need to have access to both Sakai and  Both sites use the same set of credentials to login. The easiest way is to pull up your course in Sakai, and then open up a corresponding window for your course in in a separate window or tab and arrange the windows so you can see both on the same screen. Verify you’re looking at the same course on both sites and then enter your grades accordingly.


For Sakai:

  1. Login to Sakai
  2. Go to the course
  3. In the course click on Gradebook
  4. Click on Course Grades at the top
  5. You should see the course grades for all your students listed in alphabetical order by last name


  1. Open a new window, or simply click on the link from the Get Help menu in Sakai
  2. Login to
  3. Click on Faculty near the top
  4. Locate the course in the Course List area
  5. Under the Go Directly To column drop-down box, choose Grade Entry
  6. Use the drop down menu to select the appropriate grade for each student (who are listed in alphabetical order by last name
  7. Once done be sure to Save your entries

At this point you’ve recorded the grades and they are available for the Registrar to see. The timeframe for entering or changing official midterm or end-of-term grades is usually no more than 2 weeks prior to the official published date and the Registrar’s Office. If you don’t see any drop-down boxes to select student Grades in for your course it’s likely the Registrar has yet to open up courses for grade entry.  Contact the Registrar for more information about when your course will be opened for grade entry.


Sharing Grades with Students

Displaying Individual Gradebook Items to Students

Step 2: At the top, click Gradebook Setup.

Step 3: Under Gradebook Items Display, check the box next to Display released Gradebook Items to students, and then click Save  Changes.

Step 4: Gradebook items will be visible to students when you release them. To release an individual Gradebook item, when creating or editing the item, check Release this item to Students. (If you check this box before entering grades, grades will be visible to students when you enter them and click Save Changes.)

Step 5: If you leave the Include this item in course grade calculations box unchecked while creating or editing the item, students will see their grades for that item in parentheses to indicate that it is excluded from the course grade.
