The AppointLink Grading application takes all of the headaches out of the grading process for professors and administration alike. Through our unique Grading application, users can count on a centralized, simple grading process that specifically accounts for grading curve compliance, submission and approval among other elements. The application automatically calculates weighted formative and summative assessments.

The Grading application provides faculty and registrar notifications, anonymous grading numbers-to-name reconciliation, class participation points, exceptions, extensions, and one-click grading curve compliance.


  • Automatic calculation of weighted formative and summative assessments
  • One-click Grading Curve Conformance Checking
  • Custom Data Collection (e.g., Meets Writing Requirement, Highest Final Grade)
  • Simplified extension, exemption, exception requests, approvals, and denials
  • Upload Files created for SIS (e.g., Banner, Ellucian)
  • Built-in Reports
