Google Workspace for Education

How’s an assign date for an assignment determined during SIS grade export?

The assignment’s publish date determines the assign date. However, if you post an assignment after the due date, outside the SIS class dates, or outside the SIS grading period, we use an assign date that’s shortly before the given due date.

Infinite Campus FAQ

Which version of Infinite Campus is compatible with SIS integration?

Google Classroom supports SIS integration for districts that run a SaaS solution that Infinite Campus hosts and manages. SIS integration is not available for districts with servers that non-SIS providers manage.

Non-SIS providers:

  • Infinite Campus software that runs through on-premise deployment
  • Cloud deployments that Infinite Campus doesn’t manage
  • District-hosted deployments that run across multiple organizations and admin groups

Important: Infinite Campus doesn’t control the maintenance and configuration of servers managed by non-SIS providers. Firewalls, query throughput and latency differences, and other factors may vary between deployments, which Google Classroom is unable to support.

What are the requirements for grade export to Infinite Campus?
  • Grade export to classes in the SIS relies on the email address field for students, so a valid Google Workspace for Education email address is needed for successful export.
  • Infinite Campus will assign a default grade category for all assignments. You can adjust this grade category later in Infinite Campus.
  • Assignment titles are truncated to 50 characters when they are imported into the SIS.
  • All co-teachers can export grades, even co-teachers outside your Google Workspace for Education domain.
  • All assignments must have a due date and be within the grading period set up in Infinite Campus.
  • When connected with OneRoster 1.1, grade categories don’t carry over when you export your grades to your SIS. Your grades might be assigned to a default category or marked as "Uncategorized.”
  • When connected with OneRoster 1.2, grade categories carry over if the category titles match. If they don't match, your grades might be assigned to a default category or marked as "Uncategorized.”
