Quests – Integrating Google Classroom assignments

*Quests are a Premium feature

When setting up your lesson objectives in Quests, you can pull assignments directly from Google Classroom into tasks.

In your quest, click the green "+" button in the bottom right, then click on the map to place a new objective and open the Objective Creation screen. The first step is to enter an objective name and select an objective type: Google Classroom Assignment in this case. Then click "Next" in the bottom right.

*Note that this option is only available once assignments have been created in Google Classroom.

Adding a Google Classroom objective to your quest

Google Classroom objectives are similar to the "Task" option and include the story, task, assignment, discussion, and reward options.

Instead of entering a task description under Task, you must select the appropriate Google class and Google assignment via dropdown menus. Then click "Choose" to import the information from Google Classroom to Classcraft.

Once the assignment has been pulled from Google Classroom, you can use the "edit" button to go directly into Google Classroom and make changes to your assignment. "Refresh" will update your Classcraft objective to reflect the changes made in Google Classroom, while "change" will bring you back to the "Select a class and assignment" screen. (The "change" option is only available when you first create your objective, so make sure to select the correct assignment!)

Under the Assignment section, you can enter a student reward of XP and/or GP as well as set a due date. (If a date has been set in Google Classroom, it will be pulled from there.) You can also enable a early hand-in due date and reward.

The Discussion feature is automatically enabled with Google Classroom assignments.

As with regular Tasks, you can add an objective reward (XP and/or GP) that students earn when they’ve completed the objective.

 

Following students' progress in the Quests Progress Center

You can use the Quests Progress Center as you normally would to view and manage student progress. The difference with Google Classroom assignments is that you can click "View Class" to view your assignment in Google Classroom and "View All Files" to view all student files in Google Drive.

Similarly, you can click the "Google Classroom" button across a student's name to view their assignment page in Google Classroom or the "Drive" button to view their Google Drive files.
