  • HOW TO SYNC USATESTPREP GRADES TO GOOGLE CLASSROOM

    Students will need to follow these steps.

    Step 1: Students must connect their USATestprep accounts to Google, just as you connected yours.

    Step 2: Students should click the "Mark as done" button in Google Classroom, assuming the assignment has been completed in USATestprep.

    Note: USATesetprep grades are synced every couple hours to Google Classroom, so there may be a delay from the time the student completes an assignment and when the score appears in Google Classroom. You can always refer to your USATestprep gradebook for the most up-to-date scores.
