Sign up for Classroom beta programs

There are 3 Classroom beta programs. Click beta sign-up in any topic here to express interest in the beta program.

Check student work originality

In August 2019, Classroom introduced the Originality reports beta program, a new tool for teachers and students. As a teacher, you can highlight online sources in student work. Students can use the reports to avoid unintentional plagiarism.

How it helps teachers

Turn on Originality reports when you create an assignment. As students work on the assignment, they run reports to see if their work has any content linked to online sources. After a student submits the assignment:

  • You see links to the online sources in the student’s submission.
  • You can use the reports to inform your feedback to students.

Teachers, for more information, see:

How it helps students
  • Students can run up to 3 reports on an assignment before they submit it.
  • Students see which work is original and which work they sourced online.
  • Students can focus on paraphrasing the material and adding citations for it.

To express interest in the Originality reports beta, complete the beta sign-up form. If you’re enrolled and want to opt out of the program, go to the opt-out form.

Sync Classroom grades to your SIS beta

In June 2019, G Suite for Education announced a beta program to sync Classroom and your student information system (SIS). Initially, we support Infinite Campus, Capita SIMS, and Skyward SMS 2.0 with more SIS integrations to come.

How the administrator sets up the sync

As the admin, you:

  • Complete the beta sign-upform.
  • Connect your SIS to Classroom.
  • Set teacher permissions.
How it helps teachers

As a teacher, you push grades directly from Gradebook to the SIS.

For more information on syncing grades to your SIS, go to the Grade sync pilot FAQ page.

For schools that wish to have both grades and rosters connected to their SIS, there are several solutions. To learn more, see the Classroom partners page.

Create rubrics for grading

In June 2019, Classroom introduced the Rubrics beta program, a tool for teachers to create custom rubrics to grade assignments and share feedback with students.

How it helps teachers and students

As a teacher, you can add criteria, performance levels, and scoring to the rubrics, and share them with students. Students can reference the rubric as they work. After grading, students can see their assignment feedback on the rubric.

To express interest in the beta program, complete the beta sign-upform.
