🔧 1.0.2 Update

This update adds a new feature to the site:

  • RateMyProfessors integration

    On Instructor pages, a link to their corresponding page is provided. About 50% of all instructors on CougarGrades have a link. For the others, a match could not be confidently found by our automated tools.

    Note: It is not guaranteed that the instructors linked are 100% accurate, so please use your own judgement.

🔧 1.0.1 Update

This update fixes some issues with the site:

  • “Loading X sections…” component now shows an interactive progress bar instead of a circle spinner
  • Implemented caching, section loading performance improved dramatically
  • Section DataTable now sort in descending order by default. The most recent sections will now be at the top by default instead of the bottom.
  • Fixed some styling issues in the header row of a DataTable. Header row titles shouldn’t be cut off on mobile anymore.

🎉 1.0.0 Update: Redesign, Groups, Search, and More

The 1.0.0 update is finally here. CougarGrades has been redesigned and rebuilt from the ground up. In this update, CougarGrades is leaving beta and getting many new features.

With the new update, recreating the database is required, so there will be a couple hours of downtime. In this downtime, Spring 2021 data will be added.

We hope that you’ll like the new update. Thanks for using CougarGrades.

📊 Fall 2020 grades

Fall 2020 data was received from the University of Houston and will start uploading to the database at 1:00PM on March 12, 2021 (Houston time). Some downtime may be experienced during that period. Expect Fall 2020 data to populate after that period.
