How do I automate course grade sync from Canvas to my Blackbaud gradebook?
As an instructor, you can enable an automatic nightly grade sync from your Canvas gradebook to your Blackbaud gradebook. After you enable a nightly grade sync for a course, grade passback occurs automatically every night for all assignments that are set up to sync to SIS.
- The nightly sync option must be enabled for your institution by your Customer Success Manager (CSM). If the nightly sync option is unavailable, contact your institution's admin.
- Before scheduling a nightly grade sync, verify that your Canvas assignment groups match your SIS grading categories, and that you have set up assignments for SIS sync.
- After setting up nightly grade sync for a course, you can still manually sync grades at any time. Learn more about grade sync for Blackbaud.
- Syncing grades from Canvas to your SIS is called Grade Passback, or GPB. Learn more about OneRoster Grade Passback.
