Office of the Registrar
Beginning with the Spring 2014 semester student grades will be submitted through CUNYfirst.
The WebGrade service allows instructors to submit grades for their course sections online. It can be accessed from any internet-accessible computer using a web browser. Once grades are submitted, they are loaded to the student information system (SIMS/BOSS).
The deadline for grade submission is 72 hours after the final exam. WebGrade will be available for on-line grade submission for selected seven-week and graduate program Spring 2014 course sections, from March 19, thru 11:59pm on March 20, 2014. If grades are not submitted by March 18, faculty must submit grades in-person at the Registrar's Office.
Instructors can only submit grades for a course section once. Your course section grade rosters may be saved in WebGrade after only a few grades are added without submitting the final grade roster to the Registrar. This allows you to return to WebGrade throughout the grading period to enter more grades. To save grades you've entered in a grade roster, select the "Preview and Save Grades" option below the roster at any time - see complete instructions on this feature. Once all grades have been entered and confirmed, you will proceed with the submission of your grades to the Registrar.
Grade Submission Process Using WebGrade
The process of submitting grade rosters involves two steps:
- Setting the Course Section
Password for your Course
A password must be set for each course section you are teaching before you are able to access the course roster and begin grading. To set the course section password you will go to http://www.baruch.cuny.edu/webgrade/login.do and login using your Baruch Network username and password. You will be presented with a list of your courses and you will set a password for each. If you do not see a course you are teaching, please contact the BCTC Help Desk at 646-312-1010. If you have multiple course sections you may set each section to have the same password. You may choose to share the password with a teaching associate, lab instructor or Graduate Assistant, but the sharing of this course section password should be done securely, with the preferred methods being in-person or via phone.
- Entering Grades and Submitting to the Registrar
(note - you are required to set course section password before entering grades for your course)
Once a course section password has been set for your course you will go to http://www.baruch.cuny.edu/webgrade, locate your course, enter the course section password, and begin entering grades to the roster. You should use the "Preview and Save Grades" button to save your progress. If you don't complete your grades in one session, you can save them and login to WebGrade again at a later time to complete and submit them. Once a grade has been set for each student in your roster and the roster has been saved, you will select the "Proceed to Final Grade Confirmation" button and then click the "Submit Grades to the Registrar" to complete the grade submission process to the Registrar.
