Google Snacks Volume 14 - Classroom Integration with Progressbook

Hey Everyone,

The pictures attached below are essentially a roadmap of how to sync your Google Classroom grades with Progressbook without having to type those pesky grades directly into Progressbook. One thing to keep in mind during this process is that Progressbook will only accept grades that have been returned to students. Any draft grades or ungraded assignment will not populate a value and therefore be entered as a blank. You of course can always re-sync the same grade after grading every assignment and those blank grades mentioned before will populate without effecting the previously entered grades. You may also sync as many different assignments as you wish as long as the assignments all are within the same course on Classroom.

First, we need to make sure all the grades you want to enter have been returned to students and assigned a grade...

Next, we will navigate over to the Progressbook homepage and click on "Google Classroom Sync" near the middle-bottom portion of the homepage.

After clicking "Google Classroom Sync," you will be asked to sign-in to your Google Account. Once that step is complete, you need to select the class you are syncing from both in the Google portion (lower dropdown) and the Progressbook portion (upper dropdown).

Next, on the lefthand side of the screen, select which type of assignment you are syncing. This will will allow assignments to be placed in the correct categories for weighting. After selecting the assignment type on the left, select which assignment/s you would like to sync for this course. Remember you can sync as many assignments as you wish as long as the assignments are within the same course on Classroom.

Finally, you will click the Blue "Next" Button in the upper-righthand to proceed to the syncing process.

The next step requires one of two different things:

  1. If this is the first time syncing this grade, you may proceed simply by pressing the blue "Sync" button in the upper-righthand and you are all done! (Picture 1).
  2. If you are syncing a grade you have already synced before, you will need to select whether or not you would like to overwrite previous grades entered or not, and then complete step on. (Picture 2)

Finally if everything has gone accordingly, you should see the below page confirming that grade has been synced. You may also select "Synch New" in the upper-lefthand corner to start again with a new assignment or class.

Please email or call if you have any questions. Thank you!
