Get Started with Google Classroom Integration

Before you can connect to Google Classroom™, ensure that you have a Google Classroom account, and that you have provided Google Classroom accounts for your students. For information about Google Classroom, see About Google Classroom and verify that you meet the latest requirements for sharing.

You can then follow these steps in Realize:

  1. Click your name on the menu bar, and then select Settings.
  2. In the Account tab, scroll to the Account Linking section and click the Get Started button.

    If you do not see the Account Linking option in your Realize settings, Google™ integration may not be enabled for your school district. Contact your administrator.

  3. When prompted, select or enter your Google Classroom sign-in information.
  4. Click Allow in each Google Classroom prompt to grant Realize access to your Google Classroom account.

  5. After the previous step has been completed, your Realize account is now connected with Google Classroom. We will automatically take you into the process of connecting your first class. You can repeat this process in the future from the Classes page as needed. To continue with this process, continue with the next step below. To exit this process, select either Back to Realize if there are no Google Classroom classes to select or select Cancel at the bottom of the Google Classroom class list provided.

    Note the option to Link and/or Import classes is based on your EasyBridge type (Plus, Auto, Basic) and configuration (Google Class Linking). All customers will have access to Import classes and by default, EasyBridge Plus customers will have the ability to Link classes if Google Class Linking is On as seen on the EasyBridge administrator schools page.

  6. Select the Google class you want to connect with Realize and then select the Next button. On the next screen select to Link or Import the class. Linking the class is recommended and will match the class to an EasyBridge class and add it to Realize if not already present, Importing the class will add the class to Realize.

  7. Select the Realize programs you want to use with the class, and then click Review.
  8. Review the full summary of the planned class to Link or Import with Realize. Check the selection box for confirmation of the planned class to be connected with Realize, and select the final confirmation button presented to complete the process.

  9. Click Go Back to Classes. Classes that were connected with Google Classroom appear in your class list with a Google Classroom icon to the left of the class name.

    The first time students access a Realize assignment from Google Classroom, they are prompted to provide their Google Classroom sign-in information and grant Realize access to their Google Classroom account. Until they grant Realize access to Google Classroom or link their account, they will either display as Needs to connect on the Students & Groups page or will not yet be present in the class roster on this same page. If they are not present this is expected for Imported classes as noted at the top of that page in Realize.
