How does PowerSchool Learning send grades to PowerTeacher?
PowerSchool Learning sends grades to PowerTeacher whenever they are entered in your Learning class. Scores are automatically sent over immediately after being entered for any activity or when a score is automatically generated (i.e Assessments).
Note: This article covers topics that are only available for School/Districts that have their PowerSchool SIS & Learning modules integrated with grade return enabled. If you don't see the options described below, please reach out to your School/District's admin team via Help > Contact my Organization.
These items will also be updated in PowerTeacher as they are updated in PowerSchool Learning.
If you're using the Master Class set up described in this article, the following pertains to the grade sync:
* All Gradebook Entries from PowerSchool Learning are by default pushed to the Category Classwork in PowerTeacher Pro, or the Category TEST in the old PowerTeacher Gradebook. If no such Category exists, the first Category in alphabetical order will be picked.
Please note: PowerTeacher currently limits the Title field for all Gradebook Entries to 50 characters or less. Titles in Learning longer than this limit will be truncated before being sent to PowerTeacher. PowerTeacher also limits the Gradebook Entry description to 4000 characters or less. Descriptions in Learning longer than this limit will be truncated before being sent to PowerTeacher.
Also note, that if you are using Unified Classroom, Gradebook Entry titles up to 100 characters or less will push through to the Unified Classroom Activity list, however, any Activity title in PowerSchool Learning above 100 characters in length, will not push through to the Unified Classroom Activity list, and will need to be shortened to 100 characters or less in order to show up in Unified Classroom Activity list.
You can see if grades have been successfully sent to PowerTeacher by navigating to Grades > Gradebooks in your Learning class. If you see any additional symbols in the cell, like or you may need to click on the Resend button at the top of the Gradebook Entry. If there are any persisting problems with sending the grades to PowerTeacher, a small badge will appear on the top right corner of the Grades tab, with a number indicating how many faults there were in the gradepush.
In this case, please reach out to your School/District's admin team.
