How to stop error "Grading Category missing" when syncing to PTP?

Jump to solution

I am having trouble syncing my grades from Canvas to Powerteacher Pro (first year using PTP, had no issues with regular PS). When I go to sync a grade, I'm getting this error: "Grading Category missing for assignment." However, the assignment has the category "Quiz" and the category "Quiz" exists on my PTP written the exact same way, same weights, etc. I can't figure out what isn't working. I searched the guides and previous questions and couldn't find any answers there either. I've tried it with other classes and other assignments. I've tried deleting and recreating the categories on both PTP. Nothing seems to be fixing it. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

EDITED TO ADD SOLUTION:

A lot of people have been finding me and messaging me to see how to fix this. 

You need to go to the assignments page on your canvas class. Click the three dots in the upper right corner and choose “Import Assignment Groups.” Canvas will pull your categories from PowerSchool and pop them into Canvas. You’ll need to move all of your existing assignments/quizzes/etc into the new categories and delete the old. The new ones will have the little PowerSchool sync symbol.

Make sure you are using grade categories that you IMPORTED from PTP. Just setting up similarly named categories won’t work. This solved my issues.

Importing grading categories worked for me. I deleted the old grading categories that I had created in Canvas. New Canvas assignments appear in PTP, but some assignments are duplicated.  Can anyone tell me why?

I'm also experiencing this error, however my grading categories are synced from PTP.  I tried re-importing them and I am still receiving the error.  Any thoughts would be appreciated!

Thank you for posting this. It helped me resolve a problem that was driving me crazy. 

I am also experiencing this. My categories were imported from PowerSchool first quarter and now in second quarter I am getting this message. Any suggestions?
