How can I export assignment scores to my gradebook?

If you are using an online grade book or LMS that is not yet integrated with CommonLit, you can download CommonLit scores as CSV files as a workaround. Here are two ways to download scores for your external grade book.

Option 1: Assignment Download to CSV Feature

To upload CommonLit assignment scores to your external grade book, you will need to use the Download CSV feature. To do this, go to your Assignments page and select an assignment. From your Assignment Dashboard, click on Assignment Report on the top left-hand side. Then, scroll down to the Assessment Results table and click Download to CSV.

This will generate a CSV file for the assignment sorted by students' last name. The file will include all of the color-coded assessment data found on the Assignment Report. You can edit the CSV file as needed before uploading it to your external grade book or LMS.

Option 2: Student Performance Download to CSV Feature

Alternatively, you can download multiple grades for your students across multiple assignments from the Student Performance page. On the Student Performance tab, click on Class Performance and scroll to the Performance by Assignment chart. From there, you can download data using the Download to CSV button. 

After downloading those scores, you can edit the CSV file if needed to upload any data to your LMS or external grade book.
