Is there ever going to be a time where the Assignments Categories for exam (Formal and Informal) made in canvas when I have added the weights for them will transfer to our PowerSchool Gradebook?
If you assignment groups in Canvas match your PowerSchool Categories exactly as Stephanie mentioned, they will pass back to PowerSchool. If you have weights attached to assignment groups and they match your PowerSchool weights those will pass back as well. Thanks!
Hi Samuel Baez...
I am sorry to see that your question has been sitting here unanswered since the middle of September. Unfortunately, I won't be of much help since I'm not familiar with PowerSchool. However, I wanted to let you know that I am going to share your question with the Grade Pass Back [ARCHIVE] group here in the Canvas Community in hopes that your question will get some additional exposure. If you are not following this group, you can click on the link I've provided and then click on the "Follow" link at the top right corner of the page. I will also tag your question with some keywords which should help when people search for questions similar to yours. I hope this will be helpful to you, Samuel!
Samuel, while we're waiting for a definitive answer from the folks in the Grade Pass Back [ARCHIVE] group, I want to point you to some resources:

So I'm assuming that your school has already set up its PowerSchool integration with Canvas. (If it has not, you'll have to reach out to your district for an ETA on that.) As long as the integration has been set up--you'll see checkboxes in the settings for each of your assignments that read something on the order of "Include this assignment's grades when posting to your school's Student Information System," and you'll want to make sure those checkboxes are enabled as appropriate--you then need to create assignment groups in Canvas that exactly match assignment categories in PowerSchool. By "exactly match," I mean case-sensitive, word-for-word, and letter-for-letter. As long as you organize your assignment groups to mirror your assignment categories, you will be able to sync your grades to PowerSchool through the Canvas Gradebook.
