Notes for faculty training. Brainstorm on things I would like to see happen.

    1. Develop online training for faculty who are computer savvy.
    2. Training sessions will be held at multiple locations, from College and School computer
       labs, ESSC 152 Lab, ESSC 255 lab (non-interactive training), UNT Dallas and during all
       hours of the day, Afternoon and Evening for evening faculty and adjuncts.
    3. Grade reporting hotline number sent out via Groupwise for questions concerning faculty
       grading during the week of finals and grade reporting.
    4. Well-defined rules established with approval of the ADC to help guide faculty and allow
       Registrar’s Office the ability to complete grade reporting without complications.
                All grade rosters must be in APPROVED status before posting. All grade
                  rosters not approved by specified deadline will be set to APPROVED by the
                  Registrar’s Office without consent of faculty member.
                Grade Rosters left in Not Reviewed or Ready to Review status with grades not
                  posted will have the grades changed to “Z” after all attempts to contact the
                  faculty member and department have failed.
                All faculty members are required to enter their own course grades with few
                  exceptions. Under no circumstances will all grades be left for data entry and
                  approval by a single individual within a department or School. Possible
                  exception might be music where staff handle history of MUGC 6951-6954
                Courses taught via WebCT do not interface with EIS at this time.
                Specified deadline for approval of grades.
                Grade roster not available until the day prior to grade reporting. There is a
                  registrar reason for this. The later we run the grade roster job the less
                  problems we will have with EOS problems. Once the roster is created grade
                  basis changes will not be reflected on the grade roster and it is a pain to adjust
                  them so accessible in the portal.
                In Process letter grades all converts to PR. Connie uses grade to assign last 12
                  hours at graduation.
                If “***” grade is not changed to appropriate W/WF grade, grade set to “WF”.
                Current grade reporting rules still apply.
