B. Important Dates
C. Posting Grades
Using the student's name, student ID number, or any portion of the social security number to post grades is a violation of FERPA
. Instructors are encouraged to use D2L to communicate grades and grade progress to their students. If grades need to be posted, faculty should use a random number that only the instructor and the student know. When posting these random numbers and grades make sure you do not alphabetize the list therefore losing the anonymity of the student. See also reporting final grades
