What is Grade Passback?

Schoology grade passback is a feature for our Gold plan schools that allows teachers to return scores from Formative assignments back to Schoology.

Prerequisites for Grade Passback

There are a few initial steps to ensure the passback feature is available on a formative:

  • You must be a part of your school's Gold subscription with Formative

  • Formative must have been added as an external tool to Schoology (please refer to these instructions for LTI integration if this is not the case)

  • The formative must have been assigned in Formative and then added as an external tool to Materials in Schoology

  • You must have checked "Enable grading" on the Add External Tool modal.

In addition, your students must open the formative in Schoology and answer questions within Schoology for grade passback to start working. (They cannot log in directly on the Formative website.)

Use Grade Passback

Ready to get started?

After your students have started responding to questions, open the formative assignment from the Materials tab within Schoology, click on the triple dots near the top right, and select "Grade Passback:"

You will be presented with an interface where you can choose which students' grades you wish to copy to the Schoology gradebook:

Note: You can override the grade on this interface before passing back. This will not affect the grade in Formative, only in Schoology (after clicking "Send").

Complete/incomplete grades with LTI Grade Passback

Enabling complete/incomplete grading is now an option! When enabled, it gives 100% to students who submitted. Teachers can also manually adjust the complete/ incomplete status prior to passing the grades back.
