Schoology: How do I add TeacherMade to my Schoology Course?

Has your Schoology Administrator already set up TeacherMade as an External Tool in your system? TeacherMade must be installed as an External Tool Provider by your Administrator before you begin using it in courses. If it has not been set up yet, have your Schoology administrator contact us at for a consumer key and shared secret.

The BEST thing about adding TeacherMade to your Schoology Course, is that your students can view and complete their assignments without ever leaving Schoology…and their grades will be automatically entered into your Schoology gradebook!

Here’s how to get started…

  • Create a TeacherMade worksheet, or select one that you’ve already created. 
  • Click on the 3 dots next to the worksheet, and then select Assign Worksheet.

  • Edit the Assignment Name (if necessary) – this is the name your students will see.
  • “How will this assignment be delivered?”  –  Select Schoology from the list beneath and click Next.

Score and grading options. 

Select your options for what your students will see, and then click Next in the bottom right corner.

  • Choose tools and options for the student, and select Save. TeacherMade will give you the External Tool URL that you will use to set up the assignment in Schoology.

  • COPY the External Tool URL

Now you’re ready to create the assignment in Schoology

  • Login to Schoology and go to the course where you want to add the worksheet.

  • Select Add Materials, and then choose Add File/Link/External Tool from the dropdown menu, and then choose External Tool.

This is the last set of steps. Take a look at the image below before you begin:

  1. Select TeacherMade as the Tool provider. (If you don’t see this choice, your Schoology administrator has not set up the integration yet. Click here for more information.)

  2. Give your assignment a Title.

  3. Paste the External Tool URL you copied from TeacherMade in the URL box.

  4. Check the Enable Grading box. If this box is NOT checked, the work won’t show up in your gradebook.

    1. You should assign points. TeacherMade will tell Schoology what percent the student received., then Schoology will take the percentage and multiply it by the number of points that you assign here to arrive at the score you see in the Gradebook. The Gradebook score will be updated any time it changes in TeacherMade, such as when you enter a custom score, or re-open a worksheet for a student.

  5. Fill in any other options you want, and then click Submit.
