Important Information About These Reports

The Course Grade Distribution reports allow users to view the grade distribution and Student Opinion Questionnaire (SOQ) data for all courses that the user has permission to view. This may include only courses taught by the user, all courses in a department, all courses in a college, or all courses on campus.

These reports exclude Open University courses and self-support (e.g. UEE) courses.

Available Reports

The following reports are currently available for the Course Grade Distribution dashboard:

  • Course Grade Distribution: The Course Grade Distribution report shows a summary of the course grade distribution for the college and then a breakdown of the course grade distribution and SOQ data by course and section. Users can view data for a single term.

 

  • Faculty Grade Distribution: The Faculty Grade Distribution report shows a breakdown of the course grade distribution and SOQ data by instructor and then course/section for a single term.

 

  • Faculty Grade Distribution Multi Term: The Faculty Grade Distribution Multi Term report shows a breakdown of the course grade distribution and SOQ data by instructor and then course/section for multiple terms.

 

  • Sections with GPA < = 2.0: The Sections with GPA < = 2.0 report is similar to the Course Grade Distribution report but only includes sections where the average GPA for the section was less than or equal to 2.0.

Faculty can access course grade distribution information for their classes using the Graded Class List.
