We are happy to update that from 22 June, the COVID Grading Scheme will be automatically applied to your submitted final grades in Final Grades Tool (FGT). Thanks to our Connect development team. 

The COVID grading scheme will apply the scaling of final grades as per the revised compassionate consideration approach for Semester 1 2020.

All you need to do is submit your final grade as you have done previously. If the process is new to you, please refer to this guide or come to our drop-in sessions every Thursday morning from 9 am to 10 am.

Once submitted you will see a difference between the final grades in Canvas Gradebook and the grades submitted to SSO. 

Please note that the COVID Grade scheme won’t be applied to the students failed the criteria set in FGT and you can find details by clicking on icon. For example, the submitted grade remains D+ as the student did not achieve at least 45% for a test. 

For consistency all courses should use the UoA 0.5 Rounding grading scheme this semester. Courses which use UoA Pass / Fail or CPL/DNC grading schemes will not be affected.
