Google Classroom Grade Passback is a feature of CodeHS Pro that allows enhanced syncing of grades and assignments between the two platforms.

With Google Classroom Grade Passback enabled:

  • Teachers can assign CodeHS assignments to Google Classroom

  • Students can submit their work to Google Classroom via CodeHS

  • Teachers can grade assignments on CodeHS and pass the grade to Google Classroom

Assign CodeHS Assignments

Using the Google Classroom Assigner tool, you can import a CodeHS course to Google Classroom and then assign CodeHS content to your Google Classroom students. You can access this tool in Google Classroom sections by navigating to the section and going to Course Settings > Google Classroom:

To ensure that Grade Passback works correctly, assign each individual assignment to students. You can learn more about this tool in this article: Google Classroom Assigner

Submit Assignments

Students can submit CodeHS assignments to Google Classroom, which will change their assignment status to “turned in” on Google Classroom and will have a link to their work on CodeHS.

To enable this feature, students must give CodeHS permission to submit on their behalf to Google Classroom. Students can give permission by visiting this link:

This page prompts students to give CodeHS access to their Google Classroom account:

Teachers can see which students have given permission by clicking on Manage Student Accounts to access the Roster Info page. A student who has given permission will have the Google Classroom icon next to their name:
