Temple holds all submitted grades for 1Ls until the last due date (30 days from last exam) and releases them in one big dump. It's good and bad...prevents constant checking, avoids people freaking out about a single grade with little to put it in perspective... It seems perhaps paternalistic, though. I do know it's not related to workload; the things are submitted on scantron sheets! Needless to say, most 1Ls at Temple have no grades yet. It's frustrating, but, "what you gonna do?"
