  • Resolved: Important Information about Grades (Wednesday, 30 November 2016)

    As of 16:30, Thursday 24 November 2016, all hidden grades have been restored. If your paper’s Grade Centre is not displaying as expected, please contact the IT Service Desk.

    Students - please note final grades are found in eVision.

    Issue: After the weekend upgrade, we discovered an issue which means that some grades are not displaying in some grade centres.  At present, we've got a backup of the grades on another Blackboard server so that we can get copies of grades to anyone who needs them.
