Deleting an assignment on CommonLit deletes that data from both CommonLit and Google Classroom. Deleting an assignment on Google Classroom, however, does not automatically delete an assignment on CommonLit. Here are two things you can do if you looking to post an assignment to your Google Classroom after previously deleting it:
Option 1: You are searching in the CommonLit Library for an assignment you deleted on Google Classroom
Since deleting an assignment on Google Classroom does not delete it on CommonLit, you will need to delete it on CommonLit as well if you would like to create a new version of it to post to Google Classroom.
To delete an assignment in CommonLit, go to your Assignments page for a class and click the trash can icon in the top-right corner of the assignment. Please note: You will need to repeat this for every class you want to delete this assignment from. Then, you can create the assignment again using the Create Assignment button on the Assignments page.
After you create the new assignment, you have the option to post your assignment and scores, or just the assignment, to your Google Classroom stream and coursework pages.
Option 2: You need to unlink your existing assignment with student data from Google Classroom so you can post it to Google again.
If you've deleted an assignment on Google Classroom, you will see your "Share Assignment" buttons to post an assignment and its scores to Google Classrooms is disabled.
If you are having trouble posting your assignment to Google Classroom, please reach out to our support team. They will be able to unlink your assignment from Google Classroom and allow you to create the post again.
If you have any questions about sharing your CommonLit assignments, please feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org or use our live chat feature from 9 - 5 PM EST, Monday - Friday!
