Feature or Product Area


PowerSchool SIS Role Types Now Display in the SIS App in Schoology

Role origin types of Security Group or User Access Role will now display as a label in the PowerSchool SIS app in Schoology. This will allow administrators to clearly distinguish how roles are sourced from SIS to inform how they will sync in Schoology.

District Mastery - Sort Order Within Parent is not honored for PS SIS Provisioned Standards

When standards are provisioned from PowerSchool SIS for use within Schoology, Schoology does not display the standards in the same order as set in the SIS.

In order for this change to take place, Standards need to be synced from PowerSchool SIS to ensure that the Sort Order Within Parent is properly mapped to the standards in District Mastery. Once a new sync has occurred, the sort order within all District Mastery locations will update:

  • Aligning Objectives to Materials

  • Mastery Gradebook

  • Student Mastery View

  • District Objectives Library View

Bug Fix - Some Scales Provisioned from PowerSchool SIS for Standards Passback Cause Errors

To prevent grade calculation issues, grade scales provisioned from PowerSchool SIS as part of the Standards Grades Passback will no longer be available for other uses in Schoology at this time. Materials and Courses that have these scales selected may continue to use them.
