Final Exam Grades & Submission in Infinite Campus

This blog post is to be used as a reference for creating your final exam/assignment in Infinite Campus, how to finalize your grades, and how to generate reports to save for your records. We would like to thank the D214 ITF team (Linda Ashida, Dawn Bodden, Matt Hamilton, Rebecca Kinnee, Gabriella Stetz-Jackson, and Jeff Vlk) for compiling these resources!

1. Creating Your Final Exam Assignment and Entering Scores
  • Log in to Campus Instruction and click on Grade book on the left side:
  • Select a class from the drop down menu:

  • For the grading task, select Exam and enter the total points possible:

  • IMPORTANT: Once you create your assignment, you will not see it in the same window as all of your Sem 1 assignments. You must select Exam from the dropdown to see the assignment and enter scores:

  • If you have multiple parts to your final exam, follow these directions for each part you need to enter (click +Add, add the assignment and select Exam for the grading task to enter the points possible).
  • After you have created  your assignment, fill in the grades for the assignment.  

Then:

Go to the Final task and check to see that the grades are the way that you want them.  In this screen, you will be able to see the posted Final Grade, the Sem 1 Exam grade, and the Sem 1 Sem 1 grade.  If you need to override or adjust any grades, you will need to do this in each individual task.  




You will receive directions soon on SUBMITTING end of year grades and running end of year reports!

2. Submitting Semester Grades
Remember that these steps need to be completed for each and every class.
  • Log in to Campus Instruction and click on gradebook on the left side:
  • Select a class from the drop down menu:
JHHS HD:Users:gabriella.stetz:Desktop:Screen Shot 2014-11-24 at 2.23.36 PM.png
  • Click on Settings to expand the window:

  • Under the Preferences menu, select Use Canned Comments and click SAVE (THIS STEP WILL NEED TO BE DONE FOR EACH SECTION YOU TEACH):

You may have already done this at the beginning of the semester. Please see sheet included in email with all of the canned comments you can use!

COMPLETING SEMESTER GRADES INVOLVES THREE STEPS:

  1. Post to Sem 1 Sem 1 (this is the grade BEFORE the final exam is factored in)
  2. Post to Sem 1 EXAM (this is the final exam grade)
  3. Post to Sem 1 FINAL (this is the final transcripted grade - made up of the Sem 1 grade and the EXAM grade)

STEP 1--Post your Sem 1 grades!
  • Be sure you have your Sem 1 Sem 1 gradebook selected where all of your grades have been populating:

Note: For consistency sake, we are going to put all of our comments HERE, not in the final grade section. This way, the comments will populate all in the same place for the students.

  • Click on CC to select canned comments - check the boxes next to the comments you wish to select and then click Add Comments (YOU CAN SELECT UP TO TWO COMMENTS)

  • You will see the comments you select filled in next to the students names and grades. Click Save when you are finished!
