If your institution is using the PowerTeacher Pro 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.
Unlike the legacy PowerTeacher gradebook, PowerTeacher Pro does not validate any assignments in the Grades page as validations for assignment names and dates are part of the assignment setup process.
In Canvas, your institution may be using one of two Gradebook views: the standard Gradebook or the New Gradebook.
- This integration requires prior configuration in Canvas. For assistance, please contact your Canvas admin.
- PowerSchool requires specific setup procedures before you can post grades. Depending on how assignments are assigned to students, some grades may not be able to be passed back to PowerSchool. For PowerSchool details and troubleshooting tips, view the PowerTeacher Pro Gradebook Instructor Help document in the Canvas Community.
