Intro & Navigation 

These guides introduce you to the Banner system and prepare you for navigating, searching and customising in Banner. All Banner users should be familiar with the concepts covered in these two guides.

Mark Entry, Mark Management, Classification and Sub-Boards 

Assessed coursework and exam marks are entered through the online Gradebook, available via Campus Connect. This User Guide explains how to enter marks and grades for both Faculty Administrative staff and Academics.

Gradebook: Entering Grades

Following Mark Entry, marks are downloaded into the Sub-Board Workbook. These documents will help you validate marks and use the Sub-Board Workbook to finalise marks and classifications.

Student Records

Student Records are responsible for all student movements as well as student record creation and maintenance. These User Guides cover how to complete Banner procedures but should be used in conjunction with the Student Record Procedures documents.
