How do I sync my course gradebook from Canvas to ProgressBook?

How do I sync my course gradebook from Canvas to ProgressBook?

If your institution has configured the Canvas ProgressBook SIS integration, you can sync your Canvas gradebook grades to your ProgressBook gradebook using Grade Passback (GPB).

GPB Guidelines and Restrictions

GBP only works when you comply with the following requirements:

  • An assignment name must be 30 characters or fewer.
  • The course and any assignments must be published.
  • Assignments must belong to an assignment group imported from ProgressBook.
  • Assignments must be set to sync to ProgressBook.
  • Assignments must be assigned to the entire course or section. ProgressBook does not support GPB for differentiated assignments.
  • Assignments must include a due date that is the same for all students in the section or course.
