As part of the Synergy grade passback (GPB) setup, you need to name your Canvas assignment groups to mirror the names you have for Aeries Categories. 

For example, if I have four categories in Synergy, such as Homework, Tests, Participation, and Written Response, I will need to have those same titles as assignment groups in Canvas.  This guide shows how to edit the titles of assignment groups.
