The EEE team has built a new tool so that instructors and teaching assistants can download archives of their gradebook data with just one click per academic year.
Many instructors have emphasized the critical importance of EEE Legacy GradeBook data so we have added this option to help retrieve and store copies of data that may be needed in the future, without needing to download each and every gradebook individually.
When downloading and storing this data, please be mindful of good security practices. For more information about working with student information, see: https://security.uci.edu/student-records.html
There are multiple reasons we must move beyond EEE, some of which require that we either shut down the system in 2020 or risk significant security vulnerabilities. That’s a risk we cannot accept given the sensitivity of grades and other records stored on EEE. While we cannot retain and provide GradeBook data indefinitely, we are holding EEE GradeBook for the last phases of the transition project and closely monitoring Instructure’s efforts to build a new Canvas gradebook.
The current plan is to retire the EEE Legacy GradeBook in three stages:
(1) Current – EEE GradeBook and past data fully available
(2) Fall 2019 – EEE GradeBook past data will all remain available, but instructors will not be able to create new gradebooks or make changes <- INCORRECT; GradeBook will remain fully available until its retirement in Summer 2020
(3) Summer 2020 – EEE GradeBook and historic data will be completely unavailable
We strongly recommend retrieving copies of relevant data and storing it securely sooner, rather than later.
Please let us know if you have any questions, comments, or concerns and thank you to all the instructors who have helped us understand this need!
