How do I set up an assignment 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 an assignment to be sent back to the SIS. However, you must first specify which assignment(s) in the course should be sent to your SIS as part of the grade publishing process. Each assignment must be modified individually. However, your institution may have already enabled an option for all assignments to be configured for your SIS.
Once a graded assignment is set up to be sent to your SIS, the Assignment Index Page and Quizzes Index Page lets you enable or disable an assignment by clicking the SIS sync icon next to an assignment or quiz. Not Graded assignment types cannot be sent to your SIS.
Each SIS requires specific setup procedures to properly post grades for assignments. Depending on how assignments are assigned to students, some assignments may not be supported. For details and troubleshooting tips, view the appropriate help document for your SIS integration:
- Instructor Help: Canvas and PowerSchool (this integration requires the Post Grades to SIS feature option)
- Instructor Help: Canvas and Skyward
Note: The Banner integration does not require any assignment setup and only pulls total grades from the Gradebook.
