Import Into the Gradebook

Follow

I was was hoping to get a better understanding of what import functionality is supported for the Gradebook. Is it possible to import a CSV or XLS of grade data from an external source?

    Hi James,

    Thank you for reaching out in the Schoology Community!

    Importing grades is available on Enterprise. It's possible to import grades from an external source via CSV file. The file should include columns with students' Unique IDs and the assignments with grades.

    You can find information on importing grades here: Import Grades (Step 3)

    Please let us know if you have questions!

    Hi Claire,

    Thank you for your response. I had a few clarifying questions. As an enterprise-level user

    • What steps must occur prior to being able to import grades into the Gradebook?
      • User must be created
      • Course must be created
      • User must be enrolled in course
      • Import into Gradebook for existing user enrolled in course?
    • How is student unique ID set in Schoology?
      • There appears to be a Schoology-assigned ID upon creation of a user
      • How do users assign external IDs to Schoology student users?
    • What are the accepted data types/data format of information imported into the Gradebook?
      • E.g. Are there values which are unsupported, such as percentage signs, decimals, etc?
    • Are corresponding assignments created for each grade column you import, provided these columns do not already exist?

    Thanks in advance.

    Those are great questions. If you are interested in learning more about Schoology's Enterprise version you can also sign up to speak with one of our education specialists here: Schoology Enterprise
