Canvas: Gradebook Sync Enhancements

Gradebook Sync and the Assignment Tab


The current Canvas Gradebook integration allows instructors to select specific graded items to sync with the Canvas Gradebook via the Gradebook Sync tool. When the Gradebook column is created in Canvas, the graded item is also added to the Assignment tab in Canvas.

In addition to sending the item to the Assignment tab, integration also sends a direct link to the graded item and the item due date (if scheduled in Acrobatiq).

Opening an Assignment from the Assignment Tab

When students click on an assignment, they will receive the message: “This tool needs to be loaded in a new browser window.”

To do this, they will click the Load Assignment in a new window button. 

Note: For courses where the term has already started

The sync is set up to run at regularly scheduled intervals. However, if due dates have previously been set and Acrobatiq Gradebook columns have already been created, follow these step to ensure the due dates sync to “my Assignment” page:

  1. Go to the Course Settings tab of your Acrobatiq course
  2. Select “Gradebook Sync” tab
  3. Use the "Sync grades for this course now" button 

Note: Instructors who previously created my Gradebook columns should follow this link to ensure the items on my Assignment page include a direct link to each assignment.

Direct links to assignments are added to the assignment page when a column is created. If your term has already started and columns have been created, direct links can be manually added to each item:

  1. Click here for instructions to manually add links.
  2. Once the Acrobatiq assignments are populated in the Canvas course shell, instructors can group assignments by assignment type.
