Recording exam results in Grade Centre

Using Grade Centre is an opportunity to enhance grade management and security compared to use of spreadsheets. This is outlined in the UQ Policy and Procedures Library on Assessment. Grade Centre has built-in logging and monitoring of data which has been an important part of resolving mistakes in the past. The guide contains tips for efficiently recording your exam results in Grade Centre.
