6. Sync your data

Choose all your students from the list, and click 'sync'

(Note: if students are added to your course partway through the year, you will need to come back and sync the roster again to add new students.)


7. You are now ready to start adding simulations!

Click on 'simulations' to browse the catalog and click 'add' to publish a simulation to your Google Classroom Course.

(Note: You will have to publish simulations to each of your Google Classroom courses if you have multiple sections.)


8. Set up the publication's details

Once a simulation is published, you can '+ set attempts' for students to limit the number of times they can play a graded attempt for a simulation.


9. Your students can play the simulations!

The simulation will appear in your Google Classroom course where students will be able to click to play the simulation.

They will likely be redirected to a login page from which they'll need to select the "Log in with Google Classrooms" button

10. Follow their grades & progress

Once students begin to complete the simulations, you will be able to see their final scores in the Google Classroom gradebook, and you can also navigate to and click on 'Grades' to learn more about their attempts.

Google Classroom Gradebook

It's important to note that we're always sending a percentage and setting the maximum score to 100. In the Gradebook view, it's easier to compare results when simulations are normalized to percentages since each can have a different maximum score.

Our system does not support points, and changing the maximum score in GC can result in incorrect scores.

Experiencing a grade syncing issue?

In case some of the grades don't sync with your Google Classrooms grade book, you can go back to your Labster course, go to grades and click on the 'Sync Grades' button in the top right corner of your screen.

Does the error continue?

Unfortunately, there can be a multitude of reasons why the simulation fails to launch. This is due to errors happening either on a user's LMS or internally in Labster. Please contact your student to retrieve the error message they receive and forward it to your Labster representative, or reach out to our support team by clicking on the button below.
