Issue name: Entering grades is cumbersome.
Issue resolution status: Completed.
Adding grades is cumbersome due to the drop down lists used for entry. Entering grades directly into a textbox would be preferable.
The system is designed with dropdown boxes to limit the grade entry to the grading type appropriate for the course (i.e. graded vs. credit/no credit). To change the grade entry to utilize text boxes would require a significant modification to the system.
One of the guiding principles of the project is:
Given the exceptionally high cost of customization, we will strive to make ZERO changes to the new SIS; we will instead REENGINEER our processes to best make use of the capabilities of the software. Any customizations will require Cabinet-level approval.
