The public posting of grades either by the student’s name, SamID, social security number, or other personally identifiable information without the student's written permission is a violation of FERPA.  Even with names obscured, student identifier numbers are considered personally identifiable information.  Therefore, the practice of posting grades by social security number, student identification number, or other personally identifiable information violates FERPA. 

The returning of papers via an “open” distribution system, e.g., stacking them on an open table, is a violation of a student’s right to privacy, unless the student submits a signed waiver to instructor for such purpose.
