Warning (!)

Wiki Cloud Migration Deadline


On January 8th, 2024 the University of Iowa Wiki hosted at https://wiki.uiowa.edu will be shut down permanently. If you would like to continue using Confluence (Wiki) in the Cloud, you will need to request licenses by filling out this Workflow form if you haven't done so already.

For more information and other options for your content, please visit the Wiki Service Change Options and FAQs page. Your content from https://wiki.uiowa.edu will be available for migration upon request for two years (until 1/8/2026).

This panel contains information regarding using the Grade Administration Dashboard. You can also view information regarding using grading screens as an Instructor.

The Grade Administration Dashboard contains links to perform grades-related tasks:(see image here)

  • Course Grades - view Course Roster, Attend List, Midterm List, and Final List.
  • Course Grade Change - submit a grade change after the final grade has been posted to the student's permanent record.
  • Grades WorkflowThis interface shows workflow items for grade approval workflow. The list of items will only contain items relevant to you and your department.

Final Grade status definitions:

  • Saved: Applied by any instructor delegate assigned to the academic unit, or an instructor "allowed to save grades" assigned in Course Offerings. Slip will not enter workflow until grades are submitted.
  • Submitted: Applied by any instructor delegate assigned to the academic unit, or an instructor "allowed to submit grades" assigned in Course Offerings. The slip enters workflow into the 'Course Grade DEO Approval Basket' with an 'Active' status. 
    • If there is a Course Supervisor assigned to the course, the slip enters workflow into the 'Course Grade Course Supervisor Approval Basket' for approval before it can be seen by to the DEO Grades Approver.
    • If there is only one DEO Grades Approver, that user will be automatically assigned the workflow slip and will appear in the individuals universal workflow notification basket.
    • If more than one DEO Grades Approver, each user will have access to the workflow slip in the MAUI Grades Workflow screen. The user can either approve the slip which will automatically assign it to them, or they can reassign it to another user. WARNING: reassigning grades slips may result in a bug that prevents the slips from being approved by anyone by a Registrar Grades Administrator; please consider notifying the individual to whom you would have assigned the slip that they should check the MAUI Grades Workflow instead of reassignment.

  • Approved: Applied by any DEO Grades Approver. The slip remains 'Course Grade DEO Approval Basket' but has an 'Approved' status. 
    • When an instructor submits their final grades or a grade change for approval an email is generated and sent to each user who is assigned the role of DEO Approver for the academic unit the course subject points to. They will also receive a nightly email if they have unapproved workflow slips they have access to approve. If a DEO receives an email about grades, they must check MAUI workflow, not universal workflow.
  • Final: Automatically applied by MAUI to all sections during a Grade Run. 
    • If the slip was not saved OR submitted by an instructor or instructor delegate, OR approved by a DEO Grades Approver by the time a Grade Run begins, then the slip is moved into the 'Course Grade Rejected Basket' and all students are assigned 'O' placeholder grades. Individual grade change forms are required to change an 'O' grade to a letter grade.

Grade workflow status definitions:

  • Active: Assigned by MAUI once the slip is created by an instructor delegate assigned to the academic unit, or an instructor with ability to submit grades.
  • Completed: Assigned by MAUI once the slip is approved.
  • Rejected: Assigned by either a) a user with administrative access rejects the slip, or b) assigned to the earliest slip by MAUI whenever a subsequent slip is issued

Rejected vs Reopen vs Grade Change

  • Rejected: Approvers must reject a workflow slip if it's still within routing. Only those approvers with the form in their workflow basket can reject the workflow slip. 
  • Reopen: If the workflow slip has already gone through the workflow process and is currently in "Approved" status, then a DEO or DEO Delegate can reopen the course grades from the Course Grades Page. 
  • Grade Change: Grade changes can only occur once a course's grades are in "Final" status. Please click here for detailed instructions on how to submit a Grade Change. 

We recommend that you not reject or reopen grades on the final grades deadline unless the DEO is prepared to approve the request again before the deadline expires. 

The following business rules are now being enforced in MAUI:
  1. Academic units (departments, colleges) will no longer have the option of bypassing Departmental Executive Officer (DEO) approval when submitting final grades for courses in their academic unit. The “DEO Approval Required for Final Grade” box cannot be unchecked.
  2. In workflow for submitting final grades or grade changes, the same person will not be able to perform multiple actions when an action goes into workflow.
    • The person who submits a section’s final grades (instructor, instructor delegate, team teacher, course supervisor) will not be allowed to approve them as the DEO or DEO delegate.
    • The person who submits a grade change will not be allowed to approve it as the DEO or DEO delegate, or as the Collegiate Grades Approver.
    • The person who provides DEO approval for a grade change will not be allowed to approve it as the Collegiate Grades Approver.

Note - If you have DEO rights, you will also see the Grades Workflow link.

Note - Cross-referenced courses: Class rosters and all versions of the class list display students alphabetically, and indicate the department and course number of their registration.
