What training is available?

The Registrar’s Office assumes users of the Titan Web e-Grading system have basic knowledge of web browsers and basic computer skills. If you are computer “shy”, contact the Office of Training and User Support at (920) 424-3454 or (920) 424-2285, or email  to locate appropriate learning resources.

There is no classroom training for instructors. However, the Registrar’s Office strongly recommends taking advantage of one or more of the following options:

  • e-Grading tutorials (detailed and abbreviated instructions): Go to the Instructors/Advisors section on the Titan Web splash page (url: http://www.uwosh.edu/titanweb). Links are also provided from the Registrar’s Office website (url: http://www.uwosh.edu/registrar/index.php ). To prevent errors and maximize efficiency, you must, at minimum, follow the instructions provided in the abbreviated tutorial when recording grades!
  • Demonstrations: These demos will cover the features of electronic grading, focusing on recording grades and potential problems you may encounter. Refer to the Registrar’s Office website (url: http://www.uwosh.edu/registrar/index.php) for e-Grading demo information. Departments may request an individual department e-Grading demo by calling the Registrar’s Office (3454) at least two weeks in advance to allow adequate preparation.

Links are also provided from the Registrar’s Office website (url: http://www.uwosh.edu/registrar/index.php)

 

How do I log on to Titan Web?

Open your web browser (Internet Explorer is recommended). In the Address box at the top of the browser page, enter the following url and click on ‘Go’: http://www.uwosh.edu/titanweb. Click on the Titan Web Student Information Log on box. On the Titan Web Student Information sign-on page, enter your User ID and Password. Click on the “Sign In” button. If you are having difficulty logging on, contact the Help Desk at (920) 424-3020 or email  for assistance.

 

Why am I getting a “You do not have access to this page” message?

For security reasons, the Titan Web system will log out any user not showing any activity in the system after 20 minutes. Grades entered but not saved within 20 minutes will be lostYou will receive this message when you have been logged out. To access Titan Web, simply log on to the system again. Remember, however, that any work completed but NOT SAVED will be lost when you are logged out! SAVE your work OFTEN and EARLY.

 

I can’t keep track of all my various log on ids and passwords. Why can’t we have a single sign-on?

As a member of the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh faculty and staff, you probably have several log on accounts that remain in effect as long as you are employed at the University. You have an email account, a campus network account, a PeopleSoft Student Information System (SIS) account, a Titan Web account and, possibly, a D2L (Desire to Learn) account.

With the advent of new technology, it is the hope of our Information Technology staff to eventually establish a single log on for faculty and staff that will give them access to all systems. Meanwhile, PLEASE keep track of those passwords! Write them down for future reference, but be careful to avoid “identity theft”.

 

I’ve forgotten my Titan Web log on User ID and/or Password. Who can I contact for help?

You should visit or contact the Academic Computing Help Desk to have your password reset. The office is located in Dempsey Hall, Room 207. The Help Desk is available by phone at (920) 424-3020, Monday through Friday, from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm, except holidays. You may leave a voice message at other times. Or, you can contact them by email at . For security reasons, an authentication process is followed, so please exercise courtesy, respect and patience.

It is the goal of the Registrar’s Office to make available to faculty and staff an electronic means of generating a new password without involving the Help Desk or Registrar’s Office. We hope this can be implemented in the future. Meanwhile, we appreciate your cooperation in following the current procedures for resetting passwords!

 

Can I access Titan Web anytime, anywhere?

Titan Web is generally available except from 2:00 am to 7:00 am, Monday through Friday. During this time, the system is taken down for backups and/or maintenance. If the system is scheduled to be taken down on other days, and or times, because of additional software upgrades, hardware installations, etc., a notice will appear on the Titan Web splash page (url: http://www.uwosh.edu/titanweb). Occasionally, in an emergency situation, the system will have to be taken down without prior notice, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Titan Web can be accessed anywhere with a computer having internet connectivity. However, system performance can depend on browser compatibility, computer hardware, user volume, etc. Also, see the Browser Compatibility Toggle for tips on recording grades from a location outside the United States.

 

Can I use ‘Favorites’ in Internet Explorer to help me keep track of web pages I would like to access again easily?

Although not recommended due to some erratic results, you can save web addresses in Internet Explorer.  You should follow these steps for this to work properly:

  • Log on to Titan Web and navigate to your favorite page from HOME. It is important for each favorite you save to go back to HOME and start over.
  • Bring up the page you want to create as a FAVORITE.
  • Add the page to your Favorites. Change the name to something meaningful to you if you wish. Do Not Create or Put in a Folder at this Time!! Select Add to Favorites. Click OK.
  • To organize your Favorites, you can create folders and then move the favorites into the appropriate folders. To create a folder, select Favorites, then Organize Favorites. Click on Create Folder, then Type the name of the folder in the highlighted New Folder frame. Click Close.
  • Move your favorites into the folder by highlighting the favorite and click and drag it to the desired folder within the Organize Favorites dialog box. Click Close.

!WARNING! ONLY use PeopleSoft Favorites when you are already logged into the Titan Web system!

Grading Frequently Asked Questions

Why e-grading? Who benefits?

There are several reasons why the University decided to implement electronic grading and abolish paper grade sheets in the Fall of 2004. Here are some:

  • Convenience – Enter grades electronically from home, office, at a friend’s house, while on vacation; basically anywhere, anytime! Grades can be entered and submitted from anywhere the instructor has web access. The process is efficient and the instructor is in full control of their own grading.
  • Security – Eliminates misplaced grade sheets containing confidential student data! Only instructors with electronic access (monitored by departments and the Registrar’s Office) have authorization to record the grades.
  • Timeliness – e-Grading has improved efficiencies campus wide in the collecting and recording of grades. The Registrar’s Office can monitor grading progress on-line and insure that grades are entered in a timely manner.  Since grades are posted by the Registrar’s Office on a daily basis, students are able to view their grades the day after the instructor submits the electronic grade roster.
  • Cost Savings – Average cost of purchasing grade sheets over two years was $1,100. Add to that the cost of maintaining out-dated printing and scanning equipment, and additional labor costs.
  • Data Integrity – Less chance for grading errors as grades are validated upon entry on the electronic grade roster; avoids potential of errors in the scanning, saving, uploading and editing processes.

 

How do I access my grade rosters?

Grade rosters are accessed via Titan Web on the Faculty Center page.  For further instructions, review the e-Grading tutorials available on the Registrar’s Office website (url: http://www.uwosh.edu/registrar/).

 

What is the difference between a Class Roster and a Grade Roster?

A class roster is provided as a means of monitoring the student enrollment in classes.  As soon as one student enrolls in the class, the class roster is accessible on Titan Web.  A grade roster is used for recording students’ grades and is not available on Titan Web until the Registrar’s Office generates it, usually one week prior to the end date of the class session.

 

Do I have other options for submitting grades, other than electronically through Titan Web?

The only way to enter grades into the PeopleSoft Student Information System (SIS) is through the Titan Web self-service system. Grades can be entered on the Titan Web grade roster one at a time or exported/imported from Desire-to-Learn (D2L), if using D2L’s gradebook functionality (as of Spring 2006). If you would like more information about D2L, you can contact Sarah Bradway, Instructional Developer at (920) 424-3334 or email 

 

Why can’t I find my grade roster on Titan Web?

This is usually a set up issue in the Student Information System (SIS); you have not been defined in the system in such a way that allows you to grade this section.  Contact your department’s university services associate to correct the problem.

 

When will I be able to enter my grades?

At the end of each session (i.e., 7W1, 7W2/14W, 10W/17W/3WI, 4W1, 4W2/8W) of each term (i.e., Fall, Spring, Summer) instructors will be given access to Titan Web grade rosters to enter their students’ final grades. The Registrar’s Office controls the availability of the grade rosters, and rosters will be available approximately one week prior to the end of a session, plus five calendar days after the normal end date of the session. For specific information about electronic submission deadline dates, see the e-Grading Calendar on the Registrar’s website (url: http://www.uwosh.edu/registrar/). If you are ready to grade ALL students earlier than the date published for access to the grade roster, contact the Registrar’s Office at (920) 424-2285 for early generation of the roster.

 

I “team taught” a class this semester with two other instructors. How do I know which of us needs to record the grades? Will all three of us have access to the Grade Roster?

Only one primary instructor will have access to the Grade Roster in Titan Web to enter grades for your students. Since all instructors of a class can be listed as primary instructors, it will be the responsibility of the individual in your department and/or college who builds your class in the SIS system to make sure the “grading” instructor is listed FIRST in the Schedule of Classes, Instructors for Meeting Pattern section. The Registrar’s Office will programmatically assign the grading access to the first instructor listed on the class. If you believe you should be the grading instructor but cannot access the Grade Roster, you need to contact your department’s university services assistant or chairperson for assistance.

 

What if I’m unable to enter or submit my grades? Can someone else record my grades for me?

An important part of using the Titan Web system is to have a secure environment. We need your help in creating this secure environment. Under NO circumstances should you share your password with anyone and do not ask other users to share passwords with you. The Registrar’s Office expects instructors to enter their own grades, and grading will be audited. Do NOT ask department university services associates to enter grades for you!

If there are extenuating circumstances prohibiting you from recording grades yourself, a “proxy” may be identified and manually given grading access by the Registrar’s Office. This request must be made in writing and approved by your College Dean, Department Chair, and the Registrar, and must be renewed every term. 

 

Do all my grades have to be entered at one time?

It is not necessary to enter all grades on the grade roster at one time. Students are listed alphabetically by last name on the grade roster, and you have the ability to enter some grades, save whatever grades are recorded at any point in time, and go back into the Grade Roster later to enter more grades. A nice feature on the Titan Web Grade Roster is the ability to click on a checkbox to “Display Unassigned Grade Rosters Only.” You may also edit and change grades that you’ve already recorded, submitted and approved until the official posting of the grades has taken place. The most important thing to remember is to SAVE your grades OFTEN and EARLY as you record the grades on the grade roster.

Once the grades are “posted” by the Registrar’s Office, you will NOT be able to change the grade in Titan Web. You must submit a Change of Grade Form to the Registrar’s Office for processing.  The form is available from your department’s university services associate and the Registrar’s Office in Dempsey Hall, Rm. 130.

 

How do I know that the grades I’ve recorded have been saved on the grade rosters?

To SAVE the grades you have entered on the grade roster, scroll to the bottom of the roster page and click on the SAVE button. As the grades are being saved, you will see the message, “Processing”, flashing in the top right-hand corner of the roster page. When processing is completed, the message will disappear and is replaced by the message, “Saved”.

If you’ve entered grades or made changes to the grade roster and try to exit the roster without saving, you will get the following message, “Would you like to save before leaving?” You will then need to select “Yes”, “No” or “Cancel”.  If you choose No or Cancel, grades will NOT be saved and will be lost.

 

How do I submit the grades to the Registrar’s Office? How will I know the grades have been submitted successfully?

When you are completely finished entering grades for a particular class, you need to electronically “submit” your grade rosters to the Registrar’s Office. You do this by using the drop-down arrow on the “Approval Status” box and selecting “Submit to Registrar.” Click on SAVE at the bottom of the roster to save the new approval status. If you have done this successfully, you will receive an email confirmation message from the Registrar’s Office.

 

How will I know when the grades have been posted by the Registrar’s Office?

At the end of each business day, the Registrar’s Office will run a process to identify grade rosters set to the “Submit to Registrar” status and the process will post those grades to the students’ academic records. Once the posting is finished, you will be able to access the grade roster, and you will see grades in the Official Grade column.

 

How do I change a grade after the posting deadline?

All grades must be entered during the grading “window” established by the Registrar’s Office. At the close of the grading period and after grades are posted, no further changes can be made electronically. You will need to fill out a Change of Grade Form and submit it to the Registrar’s Office. The form is available from your department’s university services assistant or by stopping in the Registrar’s Office in Dempsey Hall, Room 130, and showing photo identification. This form requires the signatures of instructor and department chairperson. Certain exceptions apply for graduate courses. Contact the Registrar’s Office at (920) 424-3454 or (920) 424-2285, for further assistance in changing grades after grades are posted.

 

Why can’t instructors change grades electronically?

Instructors can change grades electronically up to the time the grade roster is posted by the Registrar’s Office. If grades are submitted, but not posted, the Approval Status can be changed from ‘Submit to Registrar’ back to ‘Ready to Grade’, allowing a change of grade. Posting grades triggers a series of exhaustive computer processes that must run sequentially in order for those grades to be updated in all students’ records. However, the capability of changing grades electronically after posting is being evaluated.

 

How soon after I submit my grades will students be able to view their grades on Titan Web?

Students will be able to view their grades on Titan Web immediately after being posted by the Registrar’s Office. However, if students are repeating courses, it is possible that their term and cumulative grade point averages will be inaccurate until the Registrar’s Office completes the posting process and SIS Repeat Checking Process and manually corrects any problems not handled by the processes. During this period of posting grades, the Registrar’s Office will add text on the Titan Web splash page and unofficial transcripts to notify students of possible data discrepancies.

 

Is an “F” the only grade I can give a student who never attended or stopped coming to class?

If a student’s name appears on your grade roster, but has never attended the class, it is likely s/he never formally dropped the class and you must assign a grade of “F”. However, it is possible the student has filed an appeal for a late drop that has not been received or processed by the Registrar’s Office at the time your grade roster was generated for access on Titan Web. If so, when the appeal is approved and processed by the Registrar’s Office, the grade of “F” will be removed and the class dropped from the student’s academic transcript.

If a student stopped attending your class, use your own discretion as to the appropriate grade to be assigned, based on the work completed by the student. According to the UW Oshkosh Undergraduate Bulletin, the grade of “I” (Incomplete) can be assigned “when a student is unable to complete the course work because of illness, injury, or other extenuating circumstances. “I” designations may also be assigned to students in project-centered courses in which instruction is highly individualized or in individually paced courses in which the material is extensively organized and students can progress at rates determined by their abilities. In the latter case, an “I” may be assigned only if at least two-thirds of the course objectives have been accomplished within the grading period, and the student has maintained a consistent rate of progress in the course.

 

If I change a grade for a student by submitting a Change of Grade Form to the Registrar’s Office, will I be able to view the new grade on the Titan Web Grade Roster?

Yes, grade changes will be reflected on the Titan Web Grade Roster. You may always contact the Registrar’s Office at(920) 424-3454 or (920) 424-2285, or email  if you have questions about the processing of a change of grade for a student.

 

Will I be able to look at my old grade rosters on Titan Web?

Yes, you will continue to have access to past grade rosters that were graded electronically.

Trouble Shooting Guides

Browser Compatibility Frequently Asked Questions

What browsers are supported by UW Oshkosh and work best with Titan Web?

Internet Explorer 6.x and 7.0 (Win), Safari 1.x (Mac OS 10.2 or above) and Firefox 2.x (Win and Mac) are web browsers fully supported by UW Oshkosh and work best with Titan Web. Although other web browsers may be partially supported by UW Oshkosh, help with the use of those browsers may be given only if the answer is readily available or the caller can be referred to another source of help. Contact the Help Line at (920) 424-3020 or email  with technical questions.

 

The “Processing” graphic keeps flashing and the page never loads. What should I do?

This could be caused by a javascript problem in Internet Explorer. You can reset your javascript preferences by going to the Tools menu, selecting Internet Options, clicking on the Advanced tab and then clicking on the “Restore Defaults” button (Internet Explorer 7.0). Click OK, quit your session, restart the browser and try again.

 

I’m using a supported browser, but I’m still having problems with pages not loading. What else can I try?

If your browser “cache” gets corrupted and/or has bad “cookies”, pages may never finish loading. It is helpful to reset your browser to its default configuration. Each time you access a file through your web browser, the browser caches (stores) it. In this way, the files (including any images on the page) do not have to be retrieved anew from the remote web site each time you click the Back or Forward buttons. You should periodically clear the cache to allow your browser to function more efficiently. Clear your browser’s temporary internet files (also known as cache), delete all cookies, and quit and restart your browser. Directions for Internet Explorer (IE) and Firefox 2.0 for Windows are available below.

 

I’m using Internet Explorer. How do I clear my “cache” and cookies?

From the Tools menu, select Internet Options; Choose the General tab; Under Browsing history, click Delete; Next to “Temporary Internet Files”, click Delete files; Next to “Cookies”, click Delete cookies; Click Close, and then click OK to exit.

 

I’m using Firefox. How do I clear my “cache” and cookies?

From the Tools menu, select Clear Private Data, and then choose Cache.

 

Why do I constantly have to scroll to the left and right to view data on the screen? Is there something I can do to change this?

This problem usually exists due to the size of your computer monitor and display settings. The normal display setting for most software is 800 by 600 pixels. With a 17 inch monitor or larger, you should see the entire Titan Web page and not have to scroll to the right or left to view information. Try adjusting your display properties by clicking on Start, Settings, Control Panel, Display, Settings Tab, and adjust the Screen Area. If you have a large monitor, try 1024 by 768. Click Apply. Click OK.

Logging into Titan Web Frequently Asked Questions

Titan Web is not coming up on my computer at all? What can I do?

Make sure you are in a web browser and have the correct Titan Web path (URL): http://www.uwosh.edu/titanweb. There may be a technical problem; try rebooting your computer. Contact the Help Line (920) 424-3020 or email  for further assistance.

 

When logging into Titan Web, I get the message, “Application Server is Down”. What does this mean?

The Titan Web Student Information System is generally available all times except Monday – Friday, 2:00 a.m. till 7:00 a.m, for system backups. Occasionally, however, the system may be down for other maintenance. We do our best to give advance notice of such shutdowns on the Titan Web splash page at http://www.uwosh.edu/titanweb.

 

This is my first time using Titan Web and I don’t know my User ID or Password. What should I do?’

If you have a UW Oshkosh identification card (Titancard), your User ID is the letter “W” followed by the seven-digit Campus ID on your card (e.g., W1234567). Your default Password is the first two letters of your first name, followed by the first two letters of your last name and the last four numbers of your Campus ID (e.g., JODO4567 for John Doe). If you do not have a Titancard, you can obtain one at Titan Central in Reeve Union, Room 110. Can’t come to campus to get a Titancard? Contact the university services assistant in your instructional department (i.e., Art, Biology) or the Academic Computing HELP Line at (920) 424-3020 for assistance.

 

I’m entering my User ID and Password but am getting the error message, “Your User ID and/or Password are invalid.” What am I doing wrong?

Double-check that you are entering your information correctly. Your initial log on to Titan Web with your User ID and default password MUST be entered in ALL CAPS. If you’ve changed your password, your password is case sensitive and must be typed exactly as you changed it. Still stuck? Contact the Help Line at (920) 424-3020 or email  for assistance in resetting your password.

 

I’m entering my User ID and Password but am getting the error message, “The password is incorrect. You have [x] more attempts to enter it.” What does this mean?

For security reasons, if you fail to enter a correct password, after five attempts your account will be locked and you will have to contact the Help Line at (920) 424-3020 or email  to have it unlocked. After four unsuccessful attempts, you will receive the warning message, “If you enter it incorrectly one more time, your account will be locked.”

 

I’m a faculty or instructional staff member and my User ID and/or Password doesn’t work when attempting to log on to Titan Web? How can I log on to Titan Web?

Some faculty and academic staff don’t have Titan Web accounts. If you are not a primary instructor assigned to teach and grade a class, nor an advisor to students, you may not have access to Titan Web. Contact the Registrar’s Office at (920) 424-3007 for assistance.

 

I’m attempting to log on to Titan Web from a computer located outside the United States. Why am I getting an error message?

If you are using a computer with a non-English language installed, you may receive an error message when logging on to Titan Web, possibly the following: “..cannot be logged on as the language you have selected is not enabled for use with this database. Please select another language and re-try sign on or contact your System Administrator.” The solution to this problem is to configure Internet Explorer (IE) to use English as the first language. To do this, open the Tools menu and select Internet Options.Click the Languages.button. On the Language Preference window, if English is not listed, click the Add button and add English to the list. Next highlight English and click Move Up until it is at the top of the list. Click OK and OK again to save your changes. Exit all IE windows, restart IE and attempt to log on to Titan Web again.

 

Immediately after logging in to Titan Web, I keep getting a message that my “..connection has expired”. How can I fix this?

If your computer’s date, time and/or time zone are set incorrectly, Titan Web can think that your session is over right after you log in. Confirm that local time is configured correctly. Go to the computer Control Panel, click on Date/Time. Under Date/Time Properties, check the time and check on, “Automatically configure time for daylight savings time” on the Time Zone tab. On the third tab, check on “Time synchronize with Internet time server.” (This is not an option for computers running UWO’s Novell client.)

This problem can also occur if your browser’s session with Titan Web (stored in your browser cache and cookies) has been corrupted. See the Browser Compatibility Toggle for information on how to clear your browser’s cookies and temporary internet files.

 

Accessing Grade Rosters Frequently Asked Questions

I am teaching classes this semester and have successfully logged on to Titan Web, but forgot the navigation to view my grade rosters. Can you give me directions?

Once logged into Titan Web, you will be on the Faculty Center page pictured below. Note the default term appearing on that page.  If you need to access a different term’s grade roster, click on the button. Click on the Grade Roster Icon next to the Class in the My Teaching Schedule section. 

 

No classes are listed in My Teaching Schedule section on my Faculty Center page. Why?

Make sure you are viewing the correct term.  You can change the term by clicking on the  button. If the term is correct, you have not been entered into the student information system database as the primary (#1) instructor of the class. Contact your department university services associate or chairperson for assistance.

 

The Grade roster icon is not appearing next to the class I want to grade. Why not?

Approximately one week prior to the end of the class session, the Registrar’s Office generates the grade rosters and instructors are given security access to them.  The date you can access the grade roster on Titan Web is determined by the session in which the class was built.  To determine the session, select the Class Roster by clicking on the class roster icon next to the class.  On the Class Roster page, the session appears below the class subject/catalog number/section.

Refer to the e-Grading Calendar for a list of dates when grade rosters are available for grading.  If you are ready to grade ALL students in your class prior to the standard grade roster generation date, contact the Registrar’s Office at (920) 424-2285 or email  for assistance.

 

I am teaching two classes during the first seven weeks (7W1) of the semester. When I choose the appropriate term (i.e., Fall 2008), why do I see the Grade Roster icon next to only one of the two classes?

You will only see the Grade Roster icon next to classes for which you are listed in the PeopleSoft Schedule of Classes as the primary instructor with grading access approval.  Another instructor may be assigned to the class with the grading access (i.e., for graduate thesis or field project classes).  Or, if you are trying to access the grade roster to grade students after missing the published e-Grading deadlines, your access may have been removed and will need to be reinstated by the Registrar’s Office.  You can contact the Registrar’s Office (920) 424-2285 or email for assistance.

 

I am able to view one of the Grade Rosters, but am getting “stuck in a loop” when I attempt to go back to select a different Grade Roster. What am I doing wrong?

For the most part, the Titan Web system is very easy to navigate. It is best to always use the navigation provided by PeopleSoft. This may be a Return to Faculty Center, Cancel or Home button. We advise that you avoid using your browser’s Back button, since results are erratic. You can use the Home tab visible on every Titan Web page to return to the Faculty Center main page.

 

I am experiencing problems navigating to pages and can’t find what I want. Help!

If you have tried other troubleshooting hints provided and still have problems, it may be security-related. Try using a different browser (Internet IE, Firefox or Safari) as some browsers are not supported by PeopleSoft. Clear your cache of temporary internet files and cookies (see Troubleshooting Guide – Browser Compatibility). Contact the Help Line at (920) 424-3020 or email  for assistance.

Recording Grades Frequently Asked Questions

I am attempting to record a grade of “P” for a student, but when I try to record the “P” the system will not accept the grade. What should I do?

A “P” grade is only valid for classes with a Pass/No Pass (PNP) grading basis. The Grading Basis for each student is listed under the Grading Basis column of the Grade Roster. You can determine the “acceptable” grades for a student by clicking on the drop-down arrow in the Roster Grade box of the grade roster. Click on the appropriate grade in the drop-down list and it will appear in the Roster Grade box. Note: If you believe the grading basis of a class is incorrectly assigned, you should contact your department’s university services associate or chairperson and the Registrar’s Office (920) 424-0933.

 

How do I identify students auditing my class?

The Titan Web Grade Roster identifies the grading basis on each student under the Grading Basis column. If a student audits a class, the Grading Basis will be “Audit”. The only valid grade to record is an AU.

 

I had a student attending my class, but the student’s name does not appear on the Titan Web Grade Roster. Why? And how do I assign the student a grade?

There are two reasons a student’s name will not appear on the Grade Roster: 1) S/he never officially registered for the class or 2) S/he enrolled in the class AFTER the Registrar’s Office ran the process to create the web grade rosters (approximately 5 days prior to the end of a class session). If the student submits the Appeal to Late Add Form to you to get enrolled in the class, you can record the final grade in the “Instructor” section, and it will be posted when the late add is processed in the Registrar’s Office. Or, you can fill out the Form for Recording Grades for Non-Registered Students which is available on-line on the Registrar’s Office website or by calling (920) 424-3454 or (920) 424-2285.

 

I have a student’s name on my Grade Roster, but the student never attended the class. What should I do?

You MUST assign a grade to ALL students on the Grade Roster, even if s/he did not attend or stopped attending. Generally, this grade should be an “F”. If s/he received approval for a late drop AFTER the Registrar’s Office generated the Titan Web Grade Rosters, the grade will not be entered on her/his academic record at the time grades are posted by the Registrar’s Office.

 

When I click on the SAVE button, the “Processing” message keeps flashing over and over again and then “kicks” me out of the system with a “Page no longer exists” message. Why is this happening? Can I prevent it?

First of all, be sure you are not clicking on the SAVE () button multiple times while viewing the “Processing” message. Be patient!! You may encounter longer processing times on certain days or at certain times during the day when system performance is likely to be slower than usual due to the high volume of “hits” from simultaneous users. System performance also depends on the computer and internet connection (i.e., dial-up, DSL) you are using. If performance is extremely degraded, you need to report the problem to the Help Line (920) 424-3020 or email . You can also prevent long processing times by saving grade rosters OFTEN and EARLY. Remember: You do not have to enter ALL grades to save a roster.

 

I entered some of my grades on a Grade Roster and saved them. Now I want to grade the rest of the students. Is there an easier way than scrolling through the whole roster of names to locate those students?

The Grade Roster page contains a “Display Unassigned Roster Grade Only” check box. When checking this “on”, you will receive a list of only students who have not been assigned grades. Enter the grades and SAVE the roster. To return the complete list of students, uncheck the box.

 

I left my computer workstation for a while and lost what I was working on. How come?

For most users, Titan Web times out after 20 minutes of inactivity. Simply keying data into the Grade Roster does not constitute activity. The data entry part is “local” activity on the computer. It doesn’t count as application activity until you click SAVE or perform some other function that requires a response from the application. Always SAVE your work before leaving your workstation. If you saved your work before leaving your workstation, it is NOT gone and can be access by logging back into the Titan Web system.

 

When entering grades, I was suddenly logged out of the system and could not log back in. Why? What happens to the grades I entered?

PeopleSoft servers generally are down Monday – Friday from 2:00 AM to 7:00 AM for backups and maintenance. If you are in the system when the backups or maintenance starts, you will be automatically logged out and lose any grades you have entered that have not be saved. This is one reason to SAVE your grades OFTEN and EARLY.

 

I am getting the message, “Page data is inconsistent with database…” when attempting to SAVE the grades on the Grade Roster. Why?

This problem can occur for several reasons, and may or may not be the result of an application or programming error. It indicates that the system found that the information currently in the database did not match what was expected when you attempted to save your data. You need to take note of any changes you made to the grade roster prior to clicking on SAVE, click OK to exit the Error Message box, and click Cancel to return to the Faculty Center page. Try again to record the grades and SAVE. If the problem persists, report it to the Help Desk at (920) 424-3020.

 

I use Learn@UW (D2L). How will I record my final grades?

If you use Learn@UW, you may record final grades using the grade book tool. Grades can then be exported from D2L and imported into the Titan Web grade roster. Follow instructions at http://www.uwosh.edu/d2lfaq/grades/how-do-i-transfer-grades-from-d2l-to-titanweb

Submitting Grades Frequently Asked Questions

I changed the Grade Roster Approval Status to “Submit to Registrar.” When I try to sign out of Titan Web, I get a message that I have unsaved data. Why?

Grades must always be saved before exiting Titan Web. When you change the Approval Status from “Ready to Grade” to “Submit to Registrar”, you must click on SAVE at the bottom of the roster to save the new approval status!

  • Note: All students must have a legitimate grade entry before the status can be changed to “Submit to Registrar.”

 

After entering ALL grades, changing the Grade Roster Approval Status to “Submit to Registrar” and clicking on “Save”, I get a message, “Grade must be populated. All students must have a grade before the roster can be approved.” What am I doing wrong?

You did not SAVE all the grades in the “Ready to Grade” Approval Status prior to changing the status to “Submit to Registrar.” To correct this, click OK on the error message to exit the error message box. Change the Approval Status back to “Ready to Grade” and SAVE. Now change the Approval Status to “Submit to Registrar” and SAVE.

 

I set the Grade Roster Approval Status to “Submit to Registrar.” I need to change a grade I entered, but the Grade Entry box has disappeared. What should I do?

Placing your rosters in the “Submit to Registrar” status effectively gives the Registrar’s Office permission to post your grades at the close of business that day. If it is likely that you will need to modify any of your grades prior to the deadline date for submission, you should leave the status as “Ready to Grade”. Up until the time the Registrar’s Office posts the grades, you can change the status of the roster from “Submit to Registrar” to “Ready to Grade”, and click SAVE (you are saving the change from Submit to Registrar to Ready to Grade). The Roster Grade entry box reappears and you can make the appropriate change(s). Click on SAVE to update the grade changes, change the Approval Status to Submit to Registrar, and click on SAVE.

  • Note: Grades that have been officially posted cannot be changed on Titan Web. You must file a Change of Grade Form with the Registrar’s Office

 

I entered and saved grades on my Grade Roster(s). Now I am trying to submit the rosters to the Registrar’s Office, but the Grade Roster icon has disappeared next to the class(es) in My Teaching Schedule on the Faculty Center page. Why? What should I do now?

Grade rosters are available on Titan Web at the end of each grading session (i.e., 7W1, 7W2/14W, 10W/17W/3WI, 4W1, 4W2/8W) for an e-Grading period of approximately 2 weeks. All grades must be entered and submitted during this e-Grading period. Deadline dates for submission of grades are posted on the Registrar’s Office website. Your grading access to the Titan Web grade rosters may be removed after deadline dates, if you have not submitted your grades. Written approval from the dean or dean’s designee of your college (i.e., Business, Letters and Science, Nursing, Education and Human Services) must be obtained and forwarded to the Registrar to reinstate your e-Grading access.

  • Note: Some exceptions exist for classes meeting outside the normal start/end dates of the term.
Printing the Grade Roster Frequently Asked Questions

I’ve clicked on the browser print icon, but I don’t know where the printout went. How do I determine where it went or where to send the printout?

Anything you print from the Titan Web Student Information system will be sent to your default printer (or another printer that you have installed and selected). Instead of using the browser print icon, try choosing Print from the File menu on the browser window. The default printer will appear highlighted in the Select Printer field of the Print dialog box. The Status, Location, and Comment lines beneath the printer name field provide more descriptive information about the printer(s). Choose the printer you wish to print to and Click Print. If you still experience problems, you can contact the Help Line at (920) 424-3020 or email  for assistance.

 

I clicked on the Excel download grid on the Grade Roster page, but nothing happened. What do I need to do?

You need to check your Internet security settings to download files.  From the browser menu bar, click on Tools > Internet Options > Security.  Select the Internet zone and click on the Custom Level push button.  Click OK.  On the Security Settings – Internet Zone page, scroll down the settings section until you see download grid icon.  Make sure the radio buttons are set to Enable for “Automatic prompting for file downloads”, “File download”, and “Font download.”  Click OK.

Undergraduate eGrading – Electronic Submission of Grades (eGrading) via Titan Web

Students may view their grades and print grade reports using the Titan Web Registration System. The Registrar’s Office does not mail grade reports to students. If there is hesitancy on the part of the student (or third party to which the Titan Web grade report is sent) to accept the electronic version as official, the student is advised to request an official transcript from the Registrar’s Office.

Since the submission of grades by instructors and posting of grades by the Registrar’s Office are processes occurring throughout the academic year, a student’s grade point average may change. This is particularly true if a student repeats courses.
