UK Releases Mobile Grading Application

LEXINGTON, Ky. (June 29, 2012) – A new application created by the University of Kentucky is providing a time-saving and convenient way for professors to enter their students' grades into the myUK system. The new University of Kentucky Mobile Grading Application is now part of the UKMobile app and allows professors to add or change grades with a simple press of a touch screen.

To access the new grading application, professors can find the grading icon within UKMobile app by logging in with their link blue ID. They can also visit the myUK mobile page to login in and access their gradebook.

Professors should first select the appropriate grading period and year, and then find the course they are looking for based on course name and section number. Once the proper grading period and course are selected, they can find a full list of the course roster and can input a student's grade into the myUK system from their mobile device or tablet, making the process of entering grades that much easier.

The new app is part of an ongoing initiative at the university to use new technology like mobile apps to increase convenience and speed up work flow in all departments.

"We are excited to use technology in new and creative ways to help our UK faculty," Don Witt, vice provost for enrollment management, said. "Our goal is to continue to think of how mobile apps can streamline processes and work flow."

The new mobile grading app is now available for all iPhones, iPads and Android phones and tablets. For more information about the new app, visit its wiki page.
