Upon seeing a possibly familiar name on my course roster, I wondered if I’d taught the student before, and I thought “why can’t I ask Banner ‘when did I teach this student?’ and have it return a list of all the classes the student was in with me, when, and the grade received.” I mean, Banner (or whatever system runs your college backend) knows this information.We just don’t have access to it.

So I mentioned it to my associate chair, and she said, “oh, they can probably do it at BigStateSchool, we’re just behind.”

And I said “I bet not.”

Do any of you have the ability to ask the system when you taught a particular student previously?
