Grade Pass Back Bug Fix: Assignments will go to designated "Homework" and "Test" instead of default "Test" category in PowerSchool


Canvas Grade Pass Back:

From the assignments page there is now a way to see and select which assignments post to the SIS! Screenshot


Instructors using a supported SIS integration with grade pass back, such as PowerSchool or Skyward, can tell if an assignment, graded discussion, or quiz is set up to be sent to their institution’s student information system. Assignments can be enabled or disabled by clicking the sync icon in the index page.


The sync icon is currently available in the Assignments Index Page and the Quizzes Index Page.


There is now a sub-account level setting when using the "Post to SIS" feature as follows:

"Post Grades to SIS" checkbox is enabled by default for assignments, graded discussions, and quizzes and the ability to "Lock this setting for sub-accounts". As an administrator, I can establish whether Canvas objects will be defaulted to Post to SIS or not. Teachers will have control over whether individual assignments, discussions and quizzes Post to SIS, however depending on the account level defaults they should only need to manage exceptions. Behavior of Post to SIS defaults for assignments, discussions and quizzes will be consistent across Canvas. All this will only apply when Post Grades to SIS or Bulk Export of Grades feature is enabled.
