There seems to be some confusion over Gradable sections and Pass/Fail sections. Please take a minute to read the information below and let me know if you still have questions.

The types of grading for a section are as follows:

  1. Standard Grading – this is your traditional letter grades. Example: A, B, C, D, F
    How does Standard Grading look in Banner:
  2. Pass/Fail Grading – this is a grade of Pass or Fail ONLY.
    How does Pass/Fail Grading look in Banner:
    Pass-Fail Grading

When is the gradable box unchecked in SSASECT?

This box is ONLY unchecked when a section does not carry any CREDIT or BILLING HOURS.

Examples of this are Discussions and Non Credit Labs. It should be noted that these sections still contain a Grade Mode.

How does this look in Banner:


How do I know what sections need to be marked Gradable in Banner?

*Reminder* all sections that the students do not receive credit for (Discussions, no credit labs, etc.) the Gradable box needs to be unchecked on SSASECT for each CRN. This will make sure the students will not receive any credit for the section. See diagram below to see where the box is located on SSASECT.
