Procedures for instructors

Instructors responsible for assigning final grades are also responsible for submitting them online using myPurdue before 12:00 noon on the Tuesday after Final Exam Week. Instructors will be contacted by either their lecturer, course coordinator, or the Webassign coordinator with instructions on how to assign final grades. Instructors should follow these instructions carefully. Instructors should meet in person with either the lecturer or course coordinator to have their grades confirmed before 12:00 noon on the Tuesday after Final Exam Week. The lecturer or course coordinator will contact instructors to arrange meeting times and state what materials should be brought to the meeting. After the meeting instructors must bring a paper copy of their grade records to MATH 242. These records must contain the instructor’s name; course number and section numbers; all homework, quiz, exam scores, and final grade; letter grade cutoffs for the course and letter grade cutoffs for the sections. The department needs this information to reconstruct the grade of any student at a later time (usually in response to a grade appeal).

Changing grades on myPurdue after they have been approved by the course coordinator or lecturer and without prior approval from the course coordinator, lecturer or the Associate Head is not permitted. Any such action might lead to immediate termination of employment.
Instructors should not tell students their grade via email or phone.
