How do I sync grades to PowerSchool?

If your institution is using PowerSchool as a Student Information System (SIS), you can use the Gradebook to pass grades back to PowerSchool. Grades are passed back if an assignment is specifically included as part of the grades transfer. You can include grades for assignments, graded discussions, and quizzes on a per-assignment basis.

View the PowerSchool integration video.

Notes:

  • This integration requires the Post Grades to SIS feature option. Learn how to manage course features.
  • PowerSchool requires specific setup procedures before you can post grades. Depending on how assignments are assigned to students, some grades may not be able to be passed back to PowerSchool. For PowerSchool details and troubleshooting tips, view the PowerSchool Instructor Help document in the Canvas Community.
