How do I set up a graded discussion to be sent to my institution's student information system (SIS)?

If your institution is using a student information system (SIS) for grading purposes, you can set up a graded discussion to be sent back to the SIS. However, you must first specify which graded discussion(s) in the course should be sent to your SIS as part of the grade publishing process. Each graded discussion must be modified individually. However, your institution may have already enabled an option for all graded discussions to be configured for your SIS.

Once a graded discussion is set up to be sent to your SIS, the Assignment Index Page lets you enable or disable a graded discussion by clicking the SIS sync icon next to the graded discussion.

Each SIS requires specific setup procedures to properly post grades for graded discussions. Depending on how graded discussions are assigned to students, some discussions may not be supported. For details and and troubleshooting tips, view the appropriate help document for your SIS integration:

 

Note: The Banner integration does not require any assignment setup and only pulls total grades from the Gradebook.
