Added TeacherPlus Gradebook and Google Classroom Integration
Teachers can link their TeacherPlus Gradebooks to Google Classrooms they've created, allowing them to retrieve scores from Google Classwork assignments. To enable this integration, navigate to General Settings > Google Classroom.
Click the Allow teachers to use Google Classroom Integration check box.
Added Skill Codes to TeacherPlus Management Site
The AP skills text that displayed to the right of linked standards in the Link Standards to AP Skills dialog box has been replaced with AP skill codes. These codes make the AP skills easier to identify when several skills have identical text.
Improved Handling of Duplicate AdminPlus Skills Attached to a Course
Earlier this year, Rediker Software added a feature to TeacherPlus Management Site that allowed standard-based grades to be returned to AdminPlus for inclusion on report cards. This was accomplished by TeacherPlus Management Site automatically matching the text of the standard with the text of the AP skill. The system admin would then simply confirm the link. If, however, the text from two or more AP skills is identical, TeacherPlus Management Site cannot distinguish which AP skill is intended to be linked to the standard. This release solves this issue. When duplicate AP skills occur, TeacherPlus Management Site will not link the skills and instead will highlight the duplicate skills in red (see below).
