eBackpack LMS - How to turn on grade-sync with PowerSchool/PowerTeacher
If SIS automation is set up for your eBackpack account with PowerSchool - you can enable gradebook sync in the account settings. Please contact your eBackpack Account Manager to complete the "backend" set-up with the PowerSchool API.
To sync your assignments/grades with the PowerTeacher(PTPro) gradebook you will first need to turn the grade book sync on at the class level. You can find this option in your class settings on your class page:
After the class level sync is turned on, all newly created assignments will be defaulted to on when setting up the assignment folder.
If you have previously created assignments you will be able to manually turn on the gradebook sync for each assignment in the assignment settings:
All grades that are reviewed and returned after the gradebook sync is turned on at the assignment level will automatically push grades to the gradebook.
You will be able to see which students' graded submissions are pushed to the PowerTeacher gradebook by the check mark confirmation to the left of the "view" button on the submission window:
Grades have to be numeric in the range that you have set as the “Available Points”. Only whole numbers and decimals are acceptable.
Now your eBackpack assignments and grades will be visible in your PowerTeacher gradebook!
