If your institution is using a student information system (SIS) for grading purposes, you can set up a quiz to be sent back to the SIS. However, you must first specify which quiz(zes) in the course should be sent to your SIS as part of the grade publishing process. Each quiz must be modified individually. However, your institution may have already enabled an option for all quizzes to be configured for your SIS.
Each SIS requires specific setup procedures to properly post grades for quizzes. Depending on how quizzes are assigned to students, some quizzes may not be supported. For details and and troubleshooting tips, view the appropriate help document for your SIS integration:
- Instructor Help: Canvas and PowerSchool (Legacy)
- Instructor Help: Canvas and PowerTeacher Pro
- Instructor Help: Canvas and Skyward
- Instructor Help: Canvas and InfiniteCampus
Note: The Banner integration does not require any assignment setup and only pulls total grades from the Gradebook.

How do I set up a quiz to be sent to my institution's student information system (SIS)?
If you cannot save your quiz and you receive an error message, your institution may limit assignment names and/or require due dates. The error will show which requirement needs to be resolved before the quiz can be enabled to be synced to your SIS. Correct the error then save the quiz again.
