Alma Delivers Seamless Classroom Data Sync for Microsoft Teams

Alma SIS now offers seamless integration with Microsoft Teams Assignments, streamlining data entry for teachers. With Alma’s School Data Sync (SDS) integration, administrators can easily provision user accounts and roster teachers and students in Microsoft Teams. Now, every Alma teacher can effortlessly sync assignments, grades, and feedback entered in Microsoft Teams Assignments directly to their Alma gradebook. This eliminates the need for redundant data entry and ensures that students and parents have access to accurate and up-to-date information through the Alma student and parent portal, as well as on report cards and transcripts.

By leveraging the powerful education APIs available in Microsoft Graph, Alma syncs essential details such as assignment titles, instructions, due dates, grading categories, and point values on demand. Once assignments are graded and returned, teachers can sync the earned points and any feedback they’ve provided. Moreover, teachers have the flexibility to choose which grading categories’ assignments they want to sync, ensuring that only the most relevant information is added to their gradebook.

This integration empowers both teachers and administrators to focus on individual student achievement with confidence, knowing that gradebooks and report cards will always be up to date for all students and classes. With Alma and Microsoft Teams Assignments working seamlessly together, educators can dedicate more time to supporting their students’ success.
