How do I properly name my Canvas assignment groups for PowerSchool grade passback?
As an instructor, your institution may have integrated the PowerSchool Student Information System (SIS) and Canvas to communicate enrollment and user data and to allow for grade passback (GPB) from Canvas to PowerSchool. Before syncing grades with GPB, you must ensure that your Canvas assignment group names match the categories in your PowerSchool gradebook. For example, if your PowerSchool gradebook has categories named Homework, Tests, Participation, and Written Response, your Canvas assignment groups must have the same names.
In Course Navigation, click the Assignments link.
Create Assignment Group
Click the Add Group button.
Name Assignment Group
Your Canvas assignment group names must match the category names in your PowerSchool gradebook. Enter the PowerSchool gradebook category name in the Group Name field .
When finished, click the Save button .
