Export grades to your SIS

This article is for teachers. Administrators, go here

Note: The SIS grade export feature is currently available for the following cloud-based partners:
  • Infinite Campus users with the Campus Learning License
  • Skyward version 2.0 users with the LMS API license

Learn more about SIS export availability. Other SIS partnerships are in development

If you use Classroom with G Suite for Education, you can export grades directly to your student information system (SIS). After your administrator sets up the connection, you can link your classes to the SIS and export grades.

Note: When you export grades to your SIS, Classroom grade categories don’t carry over. In your SIS, grades might be assigned a default category or marked uncategorized. To download a copy of your Grades page with grade categories, go to Download grades instead.
