Electronic Gradebook

Beginning in fall 2005, all final grades must be submitted to the Registrar electronically via MyUCLA. You can use the electronic Gradebook to record and manage grades throughout the term, or you can use Gradebook Express to submit final grades quickly at the end of the term. Both gradebooks allow you to share grading responsibility with Gradebook Assistants, but only the Instructor of Record can submit final grades.

 

TAs may not have access to a course gradebook unless the Instructor of Record has granted them access as Gradebook Assistants. They can preview the gradebook by going to the MyUCLA homepage and clicking the "Sample Faculty Session" link under the login license plate.

 

Follow these steps to access your electronic gradebook:

  1. Login to MyUCLA
  2. Click Courses in the top left.
