How do I set up a quiz to be sent to my institution's student information system (SIS)?

If your institution is using a student information system (SIS) for grading purposes, you can set up a quiz to be sent back to the SIS. However, you must first specify which quiz(zes) in the course should be sent to your SIS as part of the grade publishing process. Each quiz must be modified individually. However, your institution may have already enabled an option for all quizzes to be configured for your SIS.

Once a quiz is set up to be sent to your SIS, the Assignment Index Page and Quizzes Index Page let you enable or disable a quiz by clicking the SIS sync icon next to the quiz.

Each SIS requires specific setup procedures to properly post grades for quizzes. Depending on how quizzes are assigned to students, some quizzes may not be supported. For details and and troubleshooting tips, view the appropriate help document for your SIS integration:

 

Note: The Banner integration does not require any assignment setup and only pulls total grades from the Gradebook.
