iCEV & Schoology Integration

LTI integration is designed for implementation at the district level. If the district has not installed iCEV as an external tool, the best option for assigning coursework is by copying links from iCEV and pasting them into your Schoology courses. Click the "Without LTI Integration" button below for instructions. 

If your district has an LTI integration already established, click the "iCEV as an External Tool" button.

NOTE: LTI integrations are not available for iCEV pilot users at this time. Instead, follow the steps in section 1 to use iCEV in Schoology without an LTI integration. This will require the student to log in to iCEV to complete the assignment. In addition, the grades will only be stored in iCEV and will not be transferred to Schoology.
