Sync Scores to Canvas

After adding activity links from Canvas™, your students' MindTap scores sync to Canvas based on your settings. If needed, you can also request a manual score sync to Canvas.

  • You can request a manual score sync only once every 24 hours.
  • Manual score syncs are performed after all current automatic syncs, not instantly.

    Scores sync automatically when assignment attempts are submitted in MindTap and when you enter or edit scores in your MindTap gradebook.

  • MindTap scores overwrite the corresponding scores in Canvas.
  • Changes made in the Canvas gradebook are not synced to MindTap.
  • MindTap category grades are not synced to Canvas.
  1. To open the gradebook, click Progress > Gradebook.
  2. Click Gradebook Actions > Force LMS Sync.
  3. Select the assignment scores to sync to Canvas.
    • To sync an individual assignment, select Selected Assignment and select the assignment from the dropdown.
    • To sync all assignments, select Full Gradebook.
    Note If you previously chose to sync only the overall course score to Canvas and not the individual activity scores, these options are not available to you.
  4. Click Sync.

The selected assignment scores are queued for synchronization to Canvas. Syncing your entire gradebook might take up to an hour.
