The Quercus Gradebook can help you collect and organize student grades and feedback, and share this information with students. Through the Gradebook, instructors and teaching assistants can:
- Review and download the class list,
- Add and edit student grades and feedback,
- Share information with students about their performance in the course, and
- Calculate final course grades.
Only Instructors (or "Teachers" in Canvas), TAs, Course Staff and Graders have access to the Gradebook. Students can access their individual grades and feedback through their Grades page and by accessing individual Assignments from the Assignments or Modules page (if applicable). Students will only ever see their own grades and will never see the grades of any other students through Quercus.
Gradebook and ACORN
Students should understand that the Grades area in Quercus gives them early access to preliminary grades, and does not represent their official final marks. By default, the total column is hidden from students in Quercus, and final grades must not be shared with students through the Gradebook. Final grades should only be posted through ACORN (formerly known as ROSI). For more information on University of Toronto policies and guidelines regarding the posting and distribution of grades, please visit:
- The Provost's Q and A for Instructors under FIPPA and a link to the FIPPA webpage for instructors
- The University Grading Practices Policy
