Important Information Regarding Spring 2018 Midterm Grading for All Lower-division Undergraduate Courses
Online midterm grading for all spring 2018 lower-division undergraduate courses (levels 00000, 10000, 20000) meeting in the full term (Jan. 16, 2018, through May 6, 2018) began Feb. 5 via FlashFAST. Please remember that midterm grading applies ONLY to courses that meet for the full semester.
The deadline for midterm grade submission is midnight on Tuesday, March 6. Midterm grades may not be reported after the deadline. The Grade Change workflow cannot be used to report or change midterm grades after the deadline, and the Office of the University Registrar will not accommodate other late submission requests.
Submit Midterm Grades Using Midterm Grades Roster
To submit midterm grades via the Midterm Grades roster, log in to FlashLine then click Faculty & Advisors/Faculty Dashboard/Grading Resources. Locate Midterm Grades to submit grades.
Submit Midterm Grades Using Grade Push (Blackboard Users)
If you use Blackboard, the new Grade Push tool makes reporting your midterm grades easier—with a push of the button! Grade Push allows you to “push” the midterm grades recorded in Blackboard into the Kent State Midterm Grade Roster, thus eliminating the time and effort spent manually entering them.
To access the Grade Push application, log in to FlashLine then click Faculty & Advisors/Faculty Dashboard/Grading Resources. Locate Grade Push to submit grades.
If you have questions or concerns regarding the Grade Push application, please direct them to support.kent.edu.
Please Note: The Grade Push application has been developed for Blackboard users as an option to assist in streamlining the university grading process. The use of this application is not mandatory, though it is encouraged.
