How do I use Writable together with Ed and Schoology?

Guidance for HMH Ed users who also use Schoology to roster and assign to their classes.

Updated over a week ago

If your school or district uses both HMH Ed and Schoology, we recommend choosing to either use Ed rosters or Schoology rosters, not both. You may have already imported classes when you logged into Writable for the first time!

Choosing one source for your rosters helps to prevent duplicate assignments and avoids confusion for students. To help in deciding whether to use Ed or Schoology, let's look at these two questions:

1. Where do students typically access their assignments?

2. Do you want Writable assignment grades to be synced to your gradebook?

  • If students access most assignments through Schoology and you would like to sync grades to your Schoology gradebook, follow these steps to use your Schoology classes.

  • If students access HMH Ed for their assignments, but you would still like to sync grades to your Schoology grade book click here to use your Schoology classes.

  • If students access HMH Ed for their assignments and you do not use the Schoology gradebook, follow these directions to use your Ed classes.

Still not sure which to use? Check with your school or district Writable Admin or reach out to us at support@writable.com for more guidance.

NOTE: Your school or district must be set up with a Writable and Schoology integration in order to import and assign to Schoology classes and for grades to sync to your grade book. Read more about setting up a Writable-Schoology link here.


Option 1: Use Schoology Classes

Check out these resources if your students access most assignments through Schoology and you would like to sync grades to your Schoology gradebook. If students access assignments through HMH Ed but you would still like grades to sync to a Schoology gradebook, we recommend these steps as well.

  • How do students find their Writable assignments?

    • Students will follow these steps to find their Writable assignments in Schoology. (recommended)

    • Once students have signed in to Writable through Schoology and connected their account to your roster, they can then log in to Writable from HMH Ed to access assignments.

      Note: If you plan to assign HMH Curriculum assignments in Writable (Into Literature, Into Reading etc.) students will need to launch Writable from Ed to view the digital student edition in their Writable assignments.

  • Where can I see my Writable grades?

    • Writable grades will sync directly to your Schoology gradebook.


Option 2: Use HMH Ed Classes

Check out these resources if your students access most assignments through HMH Ed and you do not want Writable grades to sync to a gradebook.

  • How do students find their Writable assignments?

    • Students will log into HMH Ed and follow these directions to launch Writable and view their Writable assignments.


      Note: At this time individual Writable assignments do not show in Ed. Students must launch into Writable to view and complete their writing assignments.
