PowerSchool Standards Score Passback
- We added the ability to provision standards from PowerSchool SIS into Schoology for organization using District Mastery. This enables teachers to pass back scores on standards aligned to an assignment from Schoology to PowerSchool SIS.
- These standards replace any previously imported objectives in the District Mastery library, allowing districts to utilize existing standards in the SIS and achieve a more streamlined experience for standards-based grading across the two platforms.
