In what appears to be a gradebook calculation anomaly, be sure items are categorized appropriately even if you course is only using categories for organization – otherwise final course grade calculations may be inaccurate – as the following video explains.
To address categorization of an item, check the Gradebook>Settings>Categories and Weighting to insure you’ve setup the gradebook correctly (specific to each course). Next insure all items which have bearing on the overall grade are INCLUDED in the course grade calculation – making sure they DO NOT have a calculator with a slash through it AND that they are not in an uncategorized category:
To post midterm or end-of-term grades you’ll need to have access to both Sakai and My.JohnsonU.edu. 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 My.JohnsonU.edu 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.

In the course click on Gradebook

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 My.JohnsonU.edu 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.
You can access an unofficial copy of your transcript, register for classes and see financial aid information (if applicable) by using CampusConnect. You can login to CampusConnect with your student ID (6 digits) and PIN (4 digit) at www.johnsonu.edu/campus. Once logged in follow the onscreen menus to find the information you’re looking for.
This article includes instructions on how to communicate mid-term and final grades to the Registrar.
Official grades are recorded and reported through the FacultyAccess system. No connection between Sakai and FacultyAccess exists at this time, so faculty must finalize their grades in Sakai and then record those grades in FacultyAccess.
In Sakai, go to the Gradebook for the course in question.
Click Course Grades
Sort the Student Name field (by clicking on the field heading) by last name to match the listing for the course in FacultyAccess
Once you’ve got your final course letter grades, click on over to Faculty Access (also available from off-campus) and login with your credentials.
Under the “Available Options” tab> click Faculty Menu
Next, under “Administrative” tab> click Grade entry
Next select the term code and specific course.
Enter the Course Grades (letter)
At the bottom of the page, choose YES if you’re completely done entering grades for that course. Choose NO if you still need to come back to the course to add additional grades or adjust a student’s final letter grade before the grade submission deadline.
