Entereing the grades of the candidates for the test

You can enter the grades as follows:


  1. Enter the grade. You can do so, by using the numeric part of the keyboard, the alfa-numeric part, or by using the magnifying glass icon. By using the "enter" button on the keyboard, you will jump to the next line of candidate. The date of the test will be entered automatically, unless the date wasn't published yet, in that case you will have to enter it by yourself. But only on the first line, because when hitting the enter button of the keyboard, the date of the first line will be copied to all the next lines, so you only have to enter it once. You can deviate from the default test date as long as it is today or a date previous of today, and the date is between the start- and end dates of the block in which the test is held. Thus it is not possible to enter a date in the future!
  2. When a student didn't attend the exam, or didn't hand in the paper / essay etc. please leave the grade field blank.
  3. Click after entering the grades the "SAVE" button, if you do not want to sign the gradelist yet.   
  4. When you have finished entering the grades, you can also click the "SIGN" button right away without clicking the SAVE-button.

The set of grades of all candidates does not have to be complete. It is possible to sign a partial grade list. You do not have to wait with signing before every single candidate has a grade.

Signing the grades

The grades can be signed by clicking the "SIGN MANUALY" button. When the grades are signed, the faculty administration has to process the grades before students will be able to see the grades in OSIRIS Student.
