LTI 1.3 Integration - Setting up activities for grade return

Student Learning & Licensure's (SL&L) LTI 1.3 integration supports an optional "grade return" feature that allows the score submitted in SL&L to be sent to the gradebook in your Learning Management System (LMS). This article will walk you through the process of setting up a SL&L template and activity for grade return.

Creating a template

  1. To begin, go to Academics & Offices in your administrator account, click on the Organization that you would like to create the template in, and click the Templates tab
  2. Click Create Template
  3. Select Activity as the Template Type, enter a title for the template, select a workflow, and click Next

*Please note: In order for grade return to work there must be a submission from the student. This means that you cannot use grade return with observational workflows.

  1. In the Assessment Panel on the right side of the page, add a Scoring component
