IL Update: Recording Grades in d2l

Happy New Fiscal Year! As of July 1, there are some updates in recording grades and hours.

1) For instructors teaching in d2l: recording grades in LRMS is no longer necessary. d2l (and, in the near future, Canvas) will be our only grade record for Independent Learning students. When a student has completed a course, please submit their final grade at:
Continued thanks for keeping your students’ grading records up-to-date!

2) It is no longer necessary to submit assignment re-submission information or course revision hours in the google forms. That work is now included in the new monthly pay structure.

We hope that these changes will help you spend more time teaching and less time record-keeping. If you have any questions about these transitions, please feel free to contact Program Director Sarah Korpi:

Good Practice Reminder: LRMS Lesson Average

When entering a student’s final grade in LRMS, you are required to enter a Lesson Average along with a Final Grade. How do these differ?

The Lesson Average is the numerical equivalent, or a percentage, of the calculated final grade. This includes lessons, exams, and any other assessed work. In d2l, when entering grades, there’s a column for Final Calculated Grade. Click on the student’s grade, and on the next page, click on the calculator icon. This will automatically calculate a percentage of the student’s final grade. Enter this number as the Lesson Average. If you have adjusted that number using the Final Adjusted Grade, enter the Final Adjusted Grade as the Lesson Average.

For the Final Grade, enter the letter grade (A, AB, B, etc.) associated with the Final Calculated/Adjusted Grade.

Thanks for your help with entering consistent information in LRMS!
