How do I sync grades to the legacy PowerTeacher gradebook in PowerSchool?
If your institution is using the legacy PowerTeacher gradebook in PowerSchool as a student information system (SIS), you can use the Canvas 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.
