Yes! You can import your Google Classroom classes and student rosters into CommonLit, post assignments straight to your Google Classroom stream from CommonLit, and export scores to your Google Classroom gradebook.
To access our integration, you must first import your classes and students with Google Classroom. To do this, go to your Manage Classes page and click "Create a New Class" followed by "Import Classes from Google Classroom."
Then, select the Google account associated with your Google Classroom account. We'll walk you through the rest of the steps.
If you add more students to your Google Classroom classes later on and want those students to appear in your connected CommonLit class, just click on the sync button that appears by the number of students to the right of the class name on your Manage Classes page. It looks like this:
Make sure to refresh the page after about a minute to see your updated roster.
After you create an assignment, you have the option to post your assignment and scores, or just the assignment, to your Google Classroom stream.
Post Assignment and Scores to Google Classroom will create an assignment in your stream, update to show students' assignment statuses, and export grades to Google Classroom.
Post Assignment to Google Classroom will create an assignment in your stream and update with students' assignment statuses, but will not show your students their scores on CommonLit.
You'll be given the opportunity to edit your post before sharing it, including editing how many points the assignment will be worth in your Google Classroom gradebook. We will be sure to include a link on it that sends your students directly from Google Classroom to their CommonLit assignment.
You can also leave the share window and reopen it later from the Assignments page or the Assignment Dashboard by clicking the share button:
If you decide later on that you do want to export grades to your Google Classroom gradebook, you can turn on this setting from your Assignment Dashboard. We'll prompt you to share the assignment on Google if you haven't yet to set up this exporting.
