Record Grades for Developmental English ENF1 and ENF2

All Faculty will enter student grades through myNOVA.  This document details the customization made to the delivered grade roster in SIS to accommodate the Faculty recommendation required for ENF1 and ENF2 courses when the grade of S is entered for a student.

Faculty will now be required to enter a recommendation for placement (ENG 111/ENF 3 or ENG 111) when a student receives the grade of 'S' in either ENF1 or ENF2. This is not required for ENF3 as a grade of 'S' here indicates the student is ready for ENG 112 or higher.

When recording a grades of R or U, you will be required to enter the last date that the student attended. You may use a placeholder date if you do not know the exact date when the student stopped attending:

  • If the student stopped attending prior to the 60% date, but you do not know the exact date, enter 01/01/1900.
  • If the student stopped attending after the 60% date, but you do not know the exact date, enter 12/31/9999.
