Google Classroom Grade Passback is a feature of CodeHS Pro that allows syncing of grades, due dates, 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 into Google Classroom

Setting up Grade Passback

Follow these steps to complete this integration between Google and CodeHS:

  1. Have students give CodeHS permission to submit through their Google account. Students can give permission by visiting this link: https://codehs.com/student/setup_google_classroom

  2. Enable Google Classroom Grade Passback under the Gradebook's Configure settings.

  3. Assign each CodeHS assignment through the Google Classroom Assigner tool.

Student Requirement

Students should navigate here (https://codehs.com/student/setup_google_classroom) and follow the prompt to give permissions to CodeHS.

Assigning CodeHS Assignments to your Google Classroom

Access the Google Classroom Assigner tool by clicking on Course Settings > Google Classroom:

You must assign each individual assignment in order to pass grades from CodeHS into Google Classroom. Assigning Modules or Lessons will create an entry in Google Classroom, but will not allow for student grades to be synced.

  • Click the arrows to expand Modules and Lessons and see assignments

  • Then click the Google Classroom icon to assign each assignment

Syncing Assignments with Due Dates

Assignments from CodeHS will also import their due date into Google Classroom. To set the due dates and assign to Google Classroom from the same page, go to Course Settings > Due Date + Access Controls.

Here, use the arrows to expand Modules and Lessons and view assignments in the Course. Set a due date and click the Google Classroom Icon to assign this assignment to your Google Classroom. The due date will be displayed before assigning for confirmation.

Using Grade Passback

When students submit a synced CodeHS assignment, this will change their assignment status to “turned in” on Google Classroom. Google Classroom will show the grade the student received and display a link to their work on CodeHS.

Please note: Changing a grade on Google Classroom will not effect grades in CodeHS. However, grades that are changed or updated in CodeHS will update to Google Classroom.

If Grade Passback isn't working for a student, teachers can check to see which students have completed the permission requirement. Click on Manage Student Accounts from the Roster. All students who have given permission will have the Google Classroom icon next to their name:

If the score for an assignment is not showing in Google Classroom and all settings are correct, you can manually re-send the scores to Google Classroom. To do this, choose the assignment from the Gradebook, check all relevant student scores, and choose Report Scores to Google Classroom.
