Grades and Grading Patterns

The Registrar compiles two reports with information on grades and grading patterns:

  • undergraduate grade-point average reports contain grade-point averages by gender, school/college, academic level, and academic program within the school/college
  • course grade-distribution reports contain final grades given in each course and section and contain department, college, and university totals

Undergraduate Course D/F/Drop Reports

Course grades of D, F, or drop (after the add/drop deadline) represent an unsuccessful course outcome. APIR provides tabulations of D/F/Drop rates by course to help departments understand undergraduate course outcomes and identify bottlenecks to degree progression. An interactive Tableau visualization of undergraduate course D/F/Drop rates over time, by several demographic characteristics, and compared to other departments, is available here:
