Configuring Grading (NJ Course Roster)

Modified on Tue, Dec 12, 2023 at 5:00 PM

Students in grades 06 through 12 are required to report the final grades that they have earned for their courses In the Student Course Submission.

The NJSMART Standardized Grades

There are three kinds of NJ SMART Standardized Grades: numeric grades, alpha grades and “completion status” grades. The Student Course Submission standardized grades are split into 3 fields, one for each type of grade:

Numeric Grades

An unweighted numeric grade between 0 and 100.

Alpha Grades

The following alpha grades are allowed: A+, A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D, D-, E+, E, E-, F+, F and F-

Completion Status

These are grades such as “Withdrawal”, “Incomplete”, “Exempt”, etc. In Genesis proper, these are also Alpha Grades. In the NJ Smart Course submission, these reside in the separate “Completion Status” field. These ‘completion status’ grades include:

  •  P = Pass
  •  F = Fail
  •  W= Withdrawal
  •  I= Incomplete
  •  NG= No grade earned (i.e. and audited class)


Mapping Genesis Alpha Grades to the NJSMART Standard

Mapping Genesis Alpha Grades to the NJSMART Standardized grades can be done on the Grading->Setup->Valid Grades->Alpha Grades->View Grades screen. This process must be done separately for every school that is reporting in the Student Course Submission: Grades are school-specific.

On the View Grades tab you will notice there is now a column called NJ. This column displays the NJ Standard Grade that your school’s Alpha grade is mapped to. Genesis has automatically set the following grades for you: A+, A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D, D-, F+, F and F-. Genesis cannot automatically set E grades because E in some schools means something like “Exempt”, and in others it is a grade between D and F. If you use “E” as grade you must manually set the NJ State equivalent.

Select a grade to map (such as WP) by clicking on the link, or the corresponding modify icon. You will be brought to this screen:

You must choose either a grade from the NJSMART Alpha Grade drop down; or from the NJSMART Completion Status dropdown. You cannot choose a value from both.
