Google Classroom Integretion

Hello, 

 

I am wondering if PowerSchool allows Google Classroom integration so that you can sync grades between platforms. Rather than having to enter grades twice: once in Google Classroom and once in PowerSchool.

Hi @joekoschnitzke

 

We recommend reaching out to the Google Classroom support who should be able to assist you further in syncing grades between platforms.

Kristi,

 

I did reach out to Google, and they told me to reach out to PowerSchool. So, clearly, there is no solution.

Hi @joekoschnitzke

 

Yes, PowerSchool allows Google Classroom integration to sync grades between platforms. However, any integration with PowerSchool is handled through plugin. The plugin would be provided by the third party vendor - Google.

There is one straightforward way that PowerSchool could help teachers batch transfer grades from Google Classroom to PS.  

-Google Classroom allows teachers to download a csv file of an assignment's grades.  If the PowerTeacher Pro "Import Scores" tool could upload this csv file, transferring grades would be easy.

-Below is a snapshot of the Google CSV file teachers can download

-To map the grade to student, PowerSchool would need to know the email address each student uses in Google Classroom.  There would need to be a process for schools to batch upload this and have the info saved to each student's record.

Look up the Google "Integration Center" plugin in recent updates: https://help.powerschool.com/t5/PowerPack-Release-Notifications/Integration-Center-Release-Notes-22-...

 

This was demo'd for us last spring as new customers and it seems like the functionality is now built into PowerSchool.

Unfortunately, I am not able to access the url on the Google Integration Center.  It looks like there is a permissions issue with my account ( "don't have access to resource" ).  Is there a public webpage with information about this feature?

 

Thank you,

Jeff

Jeff, 

 

I found it searching in the PS community related to "Integration Center" Release Notes. Try this link to the file I downloaded: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1k0IRTuEanBTFFD_XceYi5KqB4goXDgjl/view?usp=sharing
