Entering Grades from bCourses

Instructors who use the bCourses Assignments and Grading tools can export students' final grades from bCourses directly into the format required by CalCentral. A bCourses help document includes step-by-step directions.

Delegating Proxies

As an instructor you may delegate authority for entering (but not approving) grades to a GSI, a head GSI or a departmental staff member. In the BearFacts system, instructors were able to directly delegate the ability to enter grades to another person. In the new system, this is a two-step process. 

  1. Add the Proxy to the Instructor/Adviser Table: Before proxies may be assigned to enter grades for a given class, they must be added to the Instructor/Adviser Table in the new system. If the proxy is a GSI, they are already in this table. If the proxy is a department staff member, they need to be added to the table by the Registrar’s Office. This is a one-time action. Please send requests to egrades@berkeley.edu. 
  2. Add the Proxy to the Class: Once the person being assigned proxy power is added to the Instructor/Adviser table, they are ready to be attached to a class. The departmental class scheduler needs to assign the 5-PROXY code to the instructor's choice. Those who are assigned the 5-PROXY code, may enter grades on behalf of the instructor in the primary section, but they may not approve them.
