Important Information about Final Grading of Spring 2024 Classes

Online final grading for Spring 2024 (POT F1) began Thursday, Feb. 15, 2024, via FlashFAST. Grading is also now available for any Spring 2024 course section that was flexibly scheduled. The deadline for grading submission is 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 20. Any final grades for Spring 2024 courses not reported in FlashFAST by the grades processing deadline will have to be submitted using the Grade Change Workflow. These Spring 2024 courses will be available in the Workflow on Thursday, Feb. 22, 2024.

Submit Midterm grades using Midterm Grades roster

To submit final grades via the Final Grades roster, log in to FlashLine then click Faculty & Advisors/Faculty Dashboard/Grading Resources. Locate Final Grades to submit grades.

Submit Midterm grades using Canvas Grade Push

If you use Canvas, there is a tool to make reporting your final grades easier—with the push of a button! The process is called Grade Push and it will allow you to “push” the midterm grades recorded in Canvas into our KSU 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 and select Canvas Final Grade Push to submit grades.

If you have questions or concerns regarding the Grade Push application, please visit

Please Note: The Grade Push application has been developed as an option to assist in streamlining the university grading process. The use of this application is not mandatory, though it is encouraged.

Incomplete Mark Workflow:

The instructor must create and submit an Incomplete Mark contract via the workflow. Instructors are no longer able to select the incomplete mark (IB+, IC+, IC-, etc.) from the final grade roster in FlashFAST (Self-Service Banner). The primary instructor must initiate and submit the contract using this new workflow process, which mimics the old paper process. Once the contract has been accepted by the student and approved by the department chair/campus dean, the student’s grade will be updated automatically. The primary instructor will be able to initiate and submit the contract for a student after the deadline to withdraw (10th week of a regularly scheduled section in fall and spring, or prorated for flexibly scheduled sections) through the end of final grading. 

Access the Incomplete Mark workflow in FlashLine from the Faculty Dashboard under Grading Resources or Faculty Workflows.

NF/SF Administrative Marks

The administrative mark NF (Never Attended–Fail) denotes that the student neither attended one class session nor formally withdrew from the course. If a student has never attended your course, mark the student as “Not Started” on the Academic Presence Verification Roster, and the NF will automatically populate to your Final Grades roster.
