How do I properly name my Canvas assignment groups for Synergy grade passback?
As an instructor, your institution may have integrated the Synergy Student Information System (SIS) and Canvas to communicate enrollment and user data and to allow for grade passback (GPB) from Canvas to Synergy.
Before syncing grades with GPB, you must ensure that your Canvas assignment group names match the categories in your Synergy gradebook. For example, if your Synergy gradebook has categories named Homework, Tests, Participation, and Written Response, your Canvas assignment groups must have the same names.
Note: If enabled by your institution, you may be able to associate your Canvas assignment groups with your SIS grading categories. Learn more about the Category Sync Tool.
In Course Navigation, click the Assignments link.
