Sorry, but there is just no other word for it. It sucks. It has ever since it was first used here and has gotten nothing but worse in its dozen or so incantations over the years. Mark my word that they will someday trash it to the benefit of all. However, since I can no longer legally post your grades on my door, nor email them to you, nor get them to you securely in any other fashion I will use it for getting a copy of your weekly exam grades to you. I would never trust it for doing any grade averaging or calculations, or with my only copy of anything important. Then if you see an error you can email that to me once and I will correct it ON MY SPREADSHEET.
I have all of your grades on my computer in multiple Excel files and daily backups from which your grades are computed.
So, bottom line, every now and then I may, might, will possibly upload a corrected copy of your grades to eCampus but probably not until the end of the semester. It takes hours. Again, the grades on eCampus are not used for ANYTHING, and most certainly not for grading. They are only to tell you what I had on my EXCEL grade sheet at some time before you came and talked me into giving you another point on quiz 8.
If you find an error on the eCampus listing, bring it to my attention and I will correct my Excel copy. I will email you when it is done, but have no intention, nor need, to change the eCampus listing several times a day on multiple days for multiple students when they talk me into giving them back a point or two on a quiz.
I will at the end of the semester, repost my final grades spreadsheet to eCampus, if it’s still around, along with any changes made so you can check that they are correct.
