Google Forms: Auto-Submit Grades in Classroom

Very recently, Google released an update to Classroom allowing users of Google Forms to import grades from assessments.  This is a huge time-saver in terms of recording assessment scores when using Google Classroom in conjunction with your SIS or District Gradebook.  Very simply put, this means that once your students click submit, not only will Forms grade your assessment, but a button has been added allowing you to import those grades into Classroom in one click!

  1. One teacher that I work with has this feature and another teacher I work with does not. Any help that you can give would be much appreciated.


    • The Google Form they use must be set up as a Quiz. Also, the post they attach the quiz to must be an Assignment. Doing this should cause the Import button to show up in Classroom when the Form is added to an assignment.


  2. This is great news! I have the option to import grades, but it tells me that the form settings are no longer compatible with import 😦 Do you know why?


    • It was a quiet release by Google. My guess is that your school is set to a delayed release. You might check with your Google admin.
