Final grades are due today, so I was submitting them last night through WVU’s STAR system. I entered the grades and pressed the “Submit” button below the table. There was a flash as the page reloaded and… looked exactly the same as it did before I hit the button. How am I to know if the grades were actually submitted?
Do you see it? No, it’s not the line in red, nor is it the line in blue. It’s not at the very top, nor is it at the bottom. It’s not either of the lines with the proverbial exclamation point in a yellow triangle. It’s the sentence just above the table—you know, the one that looks just like every other line of text on the page.
If you are going to display confirmations inline, make sure they are conspicuous.
