Can I share Flocabulary Assignments to Google Classroom?
Teachers who import classes to Flocabulary from Google Classroom can share assignments they create on Flocabulary to these Google Classroom classes. Follow these steps to get started!
Step 1: Import your classes from Google Classroom
If you have not already, the first step is to import your classes from Google Classroom to Flocabulary. Follow the steps here to import your classes.
Step 2: Create your assignment(s) on Flocabulary
You can create assignments from Flocabulary lesson pages, from within a class in My Classes, or from the homepage.
First, ensure you have pop-ups enabled in your browser. Then, to create an assignment from a lesson page, click Assign, and select the class(es) or individual student(s) you want to get the assignment.
Select the activities you’d like to include in the assignment. If you’d like, you can select a visible starting date and due date, as well.
Step 3: Set the share-to-Classroom toggle on
You’ll see a toggle that lets you indicate whether or not you’d like to share your assignment(s) to Google Classroom. If you’d like to share the assignments, keep the toggle on. If not, turn it off. If you turn it off, the assignments will not be shared to Classroom.
We’ll save your preference for the next time you create an assignment. You can change your preference at any time by setting the toggle on or off when creating another assignment!
Step 4: Select your email address and grant Flocabulary permission to manage coursework
Click “Create Assignment.” At this point, you will be asked to select the email address for your Google Classroom classes. The first time you do this, you’ll also have to grant Flocabulary permission to manage your Google coursework. If this does not work, make sure you have pop-ups enabled in your browser, refresh the page, and try again.
After selecting your email address and granting permission, you’ll see a message letting you know that the assignments are being created and shared to Classroom, and another message when the process is complete!
When you log into Google Classroom, you’ll then see the Flocabulary assignment posted in your classes’ Stream and Coursework pages. The title, scheduled date, and due date (if applicable) will be copied from Flocabulary. If you select individual student(s) for the assignment on Flocab, only those students will see the assignment on Google Classroom.
Step 5: Tell your students to log into Google Classroom to see their Flocabulary assignments!
When students log into Google Classroom, they will see the assignment in their Stream and Coursework pages on the scheduled date.
When they click the link, they’ll be redirected to Flocabulary and prompted to sign in. They will then complete the assignment on Flocabulary.
This integration supports the initial sharing and access to the assignment. There are some features that are not included:
- When students complete the assignment on Flocabulary, it will not register as “turned in” on Google Classroom. Students can go to the assignment on Google Classroom and mark it as “done” when they are finished with it on Flocabulary.
- Only the details included in the assignment when it is initially created on Flocabulary will be shared to Google Classroom. If you change the due date, delete, or add/remove students from the assignment on Flocabulary later, these changes will not be reflected on Google Classroom. Likewise, if you make changes to the assignment on Google Classroom, they will not be reflected on Flocabulary.
- The grade field for the assignment on Google Classroom will say “ungraded.” Grades on activities in Flocabulary will not be passed to Google Classroom. You can always change the point value of the assignment on Google Classroom yourself.
