SIS Integration Beta Release Notes (2021-05-17)

In this SIS Beta release (May 17), teachers can match a course’s assignment groups to specific categories in their SIS system gradebook.

This feature is expected to be generally available for all clients before August 2020. This update allows for greater flexibility within current SIS functionality.

Note: Users need to contact their CSM to have this feature turned on in their account. Users need to have near-real time Grade Passback already configured for one of the initially supported SISs.

 

Initially Supported SIS Integrations:

  • Aeries
  • Focus
  • Pinnacle
  • Q (Mistar / Aequitas)
  • Skyward Qmlativ
  • Skyward SMS
  • Synergy

 

  New Feature

 

Category Sync

Teachers can match a course’s assignment groups to specific categories in their school's SIS system. Previously, teachers had to manually verify that their assignment group names exactly matched the category names in their SIS system. This update allows teachers the flexibility to create Canvas assignment groups and sync assignments from each assignment group into a specific SIS category.
