The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) prohibits the posting of grades by social security number, student identification number, or in any manner personally identifiable to the individual student. FERPA does not prohibit the posting of grades using code numbers that are appropriately restricted to school officials who have been determined to have a legitimate educational interest in the grades. Even if such code numbers are used, the list should not be alphabetized or ordered in any other way that might make identification possible by unauthorized individuals.
The safest course of action is to refrain from posting grades at all. If a faculty member chooses to post grades, he/she should use code numbers as indicated above or posting of grades within the learning management system.
