To link a Grasple test to your Canvas course just follow the six easy steps below!

Creating Grade items

  1. Add an assignment to your course in Canvas

    *NB: No restrictions should be placed on the test in Canvas. Use the Grasple settings to apply restrictions.

2. Under Submission Type, select External Tool and click Find

3. Select Grasple as your External Tool

4. Select the Grasple Test you want to link to your Gradebook

5. Save and publish your test to make it available for your students

IMPORTANT: The link MUST be published for the integration to work. If not, Grasple won't be able to send the grades to Canvas.

6. As soon as students complete the test, their highest score will sync with your Gradebook

Keep in mind

  • Grades can only be synced for tests, not for practice modules

  • If students are allowed multiple test attempts, we will always sync their highest grade to Canvas

  • All restrictions (e.g. start + closing time, max attempts, etc.) should be applied within Grasple, not within Canvas. This is to prevent students from accessing the test in Grasple via another route (e.g. SURFConext or LTI link to another part of the course)

  • It can take a couple of minutes before grades are synced and visible in your Gradebook

  • Adjusting the grade manually in Grasple as a teacher, will sync the highest grade to Canvas again in case this has changed

  • All types of tests can be linked to a Canvas gradebook, so there's no distinction between e.g. formative and summative tests
