How do I sync grades from Canvas to the Aspire SIS gradebook?

Your institution may configure grade passback (GPB) from Canvas to Aspire. As an instructor, you can sync gradebook information from Canvas to your Aspire gradebook. When you sync your Canvas gradebook to your SIS, grades and assignments specified for SIS sync and included in a matching assignment group automatically display in your Aspire gradebook.

GPB Guidelines and Restrictions

  • An assignment name must be 30 characters or fewer.
  • The course and any assignments must be published.
  • Assignments must include an "Everyone" or "Everyone Else" due date.
