How can I fix grade export errors?

Confirm these details for your classwork:

  • There is a due date within the current SIS grading period.
  • The title is short and unique. 

Important: Grades must be in a returned state. Draft grades don’t export to your SIS.

What if a student in my class isn’t found in my SIS?
A student needs to have the same email address in Classroom and your SIS. If you’re not sure how to check this, ask your Google Workspace for Education administrator.
What if I can’t link my Classroom class to the SIS?
  • Check that the primary teacher’s email address in the SIS is correct. The email address should match the Google Workspace for Education email address for Classroom.
  • Make sure you’re listed as the primary teacher for the class in your SIS. Only the primary teacher in the SIS can link a Classroom class.
  • Confirm that your admin connected Classroom to your SIS.

Tip: If you have SIS options on your Classroom Settings page, your admin sets up the connection.
