BATON ROUGE – LSU officials say students stressing over final exams Friday broke an online feature that allows students to see their final grades.
“We had to turn off the ‘project your final grade’ feature as too many inquiries broke Moodle this morning. #CantMakeThisUp,” LSU IT Services shared on Twitter Friday morning.

Moodle is an online portal that allows students to access classroom resources and grades. The service includes a feature that allows students to forecast their final grades depending on their final exam scores.
According to LSU’s academic calendar, Saturday is officially the last day of class for the Fall 2016 semester. Final exams begin next week.
LSU IT Services says the ‘project your final grade’ feature received more than 20,000 simultaneous requests Friday morning.
Earlier this year, LSU reported that total enrollment for the Fall 2016 semester was 31,414 students.
