The grades, comments, and skill ratings teachers record in Faculty Access for the Web are saved to the Registrar's Office database, but do not appear in Grades until you post them.

Important notes
  • Before posting the information, you can run a preprocessing report to verify which classes are ready and to discover any posting exceptions. 
  • You can post marking column grade, comments, and skill ratings to the same marking column in Registrars Office, or set up a method to post grades to an interim marking column you create in Registrars Office to use for progress reports. Review How to track interim grades (BB113949).  
  • Teachers must indicate that the marking column grades, comments, and skill ratings are ready for posting for posting to occur. If the grades, comments, or skill ratings are not ready for posting, the class is considered an exception in the posting process.  Review how to change the posting status from not ready to ready for more information (BB454880). 
  • Whether numeric or letter grades post depends on the grading information set up on each course record in Records in Registrars Office. If both numeric and letter grades are allowed, the grades post as they are entered in Faculty Access for the Web, unless you mark the Post as letter grades checkbox on the Post from FAWeb screen. In this case, the program determines the letter grades by using the grade range created by the Cutoff Value column on the translation table associated with the marking column in Registrars Office. 
  • The posting process automatically excludes grade information for withdrawn and dropped students.
  • If you click Cancel on the processing screen before the posting is complete, no posting occurs.
  • The grade books must be set to ready before the steps can be taken. Please refer to How to globally update grade and comment statuses for gradebooks in FAWeb .
