Q: Can non-Blackboard (Gradebook) users use RAMSS to submit grades online?  

A: An instructor does not need to be a user of Blackboard (Gradebook) to submit grades online. Instructors can log in to the my.ryerson.ca portal, click on the RAMSS tab and access the online grade submission facility.  Please see How to Enter Grades for detailed instructions on the grade submission process through RAMSS.

 

 Q: Who do I contact if my I cannot see some or all of my classes on the RAMSS page?

A: Please ensure that you have selected the correct term for the classes you are trying to access/grade.  Click the change term button on the Faculty Center page to select a different term.  If you are still unable to see your classes on your Faculty Center page please contact:

  • Operations Support at Facultysupport@ryerson.ca or 416.979.5000 ext. 2292 for Undergraduate or Graduate Instructors
  • Linda Kowal, Manager of Instructor Relations at 416.979.5000 ext. 7566 for Chang School of Continuing Education Instructors



Q: How can I view my grades?

A: Go to my.ryerson.ca, click on the RAMSS tab. You can view a Grade Roster from your Faculty Center. You may also wish to view How to Enter Grades for more information.

 

 Q: Can I edit my grades after I have entered them?

A: You may edit your grades online any time up until they are posted to individual students' records which is one hour after the published deadline to submit grades (see Significant Dates). Specific instructions for editing grades are included in How to Enter Grades.

If you need to revise a grade or grades after they have been posted to students' records you must complete a Grade Revision Form PDF. The form may be filled in online, but must then be printed, signed and submitted to Student Records (Located in POD70) for processing.

 

Q: How do I grade a student who has dropped out of my class but still appears on my grade roster?

A: At the time the grade roster was generated, the student was still enrolled in your class. In situations like this you are advised to assign a grade of "F" on the assumption that the student has participated in the class. If the student has not participated in the class and has not submitted any work for assessment, you are advised to submit a grade of "FNA".

 

Q: A student has attended my class but does not appear on my grade roster. How do I grade this student?

A: You must complete a Grade Revision FormPDF. The form may be filled in online, but must then be printed, signed and submitted to Student Records (Located in POD70) or processing.

 

 Q: I have a student on my grade roster that has never been to my class. How do I grade this student and be able to Approve my grade roster?

A: Assign a grade of "FNA" to the student. If the student attended another instructor's class (but the same course), that instructor will have to submit a grade manually. If this is the case, every effort will be made to "match-up" and replace the "FNA" grade with the manual grade.

 

 Q: I am unable to change the status of my grade roster to Approved. What can I do?

A: Check to ensure that each and every student in your class has been assigned a grade. If this does not work, please contact Operations Support at facultysupport@ryerson.ca or 416.979.5000 ext. 2292.

 

Q:  What if a student appears in Blackboard (Gradebook) but does not appear on my Grade Roster.  How do I grade this student?
