Sakai Tip: Ensure Accurate Student Grades in Sakai
Is your Sakai Gradebook excusing missed assignments or quizzes? Those that are incomplete will have no grade in the Gradebook, and that empty cell does not count against the student’s grade. Fill in that empty cell with a “0” to ensure that the missed work affects grades accurately.
Keep up to date on colleagues celebrating service anniversaries. Obituaries and memorial information may be found at In Memory. Please contact askHR at 631-5900 to submit obituary and memorial updates.
