Sync grades

Note: This feature is only available for institutional clients.

If the Bulb assigned only includes auto-graded questions (multiple choice, check-all-that-apply, fill-in-the-blank), then grades will be automatically exported into the Google Gradebook. For a more detailed description of syncing grades, click here

Note: Google Classroom only accepts point values out of 100 and rounds up to the nearest whole number. For example, if a Bulb is worth 8 points and a learner receives 5 points, then their score will appear in Google classroom as 63 instead of 62.5.

When free-response questions are graded or auto-graded questions are edited, these changes will need to be synced with Google Gradebook. To do this:

Navigate to  Classes

Select the class to monitor data. 

Select the Bulb and click  Monitor.

View and score learner data and track progress. For more information on how to manually grade interactions, click here

Once interactions that needed to be graded are complete and ready to sync to Google Classroom, select Sync Grades

Monitor learner data

In PlayPosit, navigate to Classes

Select the class to monitor data for. 

Select the bulb and click Monitor. For more information on monitoring the analytics, click here
