Only the instructor of record in Banner can submit grades!

You can submit grades from your course, including combined or cross-listed courses. Before you upload your final grades to Banner, remember to do these three important things:

  1. Physically enter a grade for all students, even if the grade is a 0, in all columns,
  2. Un-mute all columns, and
  3. Turn off the Treat Ungraded as 0 option. This option shows you, the instructor, how things would look if all ungraded assignments were zeros, it does not "stick" when you leave the gradebook, or affect what is seen by your students. It's therefore important to enter a zero grade when a student doesn't complete an assignment, rather than leave it ungraded
  1. In the course you want to upload grades for, in the left navigation, click the Canvas to Banner Grade Submission link
  2. Click Open in New Tab
  3. A list of the courses you are teaching is displayed
  4. For the course you want to upload grades, click View grades
    View Grades link
  5. The notifications page is displayed
    1. The first notification listed is the Treat ungraded as 0 option in the grade book. By default, ungraded assignments are NOT included in any assignment total calculations. This means that when assignments are left as "ungraded" (shown with a '-' dash), they are treated as if they never happened. The Treat ungraded as 0 option shows the instructor ONLY how things would look if all ungraded assignments were zeros, it does not "stick" when you leave the gradebook, or affect what is seen by students. It's therefore important to actually enter a zero grade when a student doesn't complete an assignment, rather than to leave it ungraded
      Treat ungraded as 0 notice
    2. The grading scheme used to calculate letter grades is displayed. If you have not created a custom scheme, then the default UNC Charlotte scheme is used. Depending on the course level, either the Undergraduate or Graduate grading scheme is used. However, if you created your own scheme and applied it to the course, your scheme is displayed. You can add and enable a scheme using the scheme links on the page. However, if you want to add one of the UNC Charlotte schemes to your grade book, follow these directions
