All reports generated by UB Scoring Services are provided using the following student identifiers: person number, last name and first name.
Faculty who need to review reports with students should not use
any reports that aggregate student identifying information. Our
recommendation is to use the Student Grade Report, which restricts
the display of sensitive data to the individual student
Faculty should also be aware of university information policies
and safe data handling practices.
Definition of 'personally identifiable information' includes any personal identifier such as a student’s Social Security number or identification number, person number or any personal characteristics or other information that would make a student’s identity easily traceable.
A student's UB Person Number is identified as Category III: Internal Use Data.
Grades and other pieces of personal information will not be publicly posted or displayed with the Social Security number. Class lists, rosters, student ID cards and other reports will not display the Social Security number: the UB Person Number will be used instead.
Grades are posted using the last four digits of the UB Person Number.
