Schoology and QuaverEd

QuaverEd supports Schoology LTI Single Sign-On (SSO) access to our resources. We support various methods for automated rostering that can be paired with Schoology LTI SSO.

Otherwise, teachers can use student self-enrollment with Schoology LTI SSO to manually manage their rosters in Quaver.

Schoology SSO Integration Setup

This section is directed toward IT administrators looking to set up an External Tool in Schoology to allow Single Sign-On access to QuaverEd resources directly from Schoology via LTI using the instructions below.

How to set up QuaverEd as an LTI External Tool in Schoology

Step 1: District requests integration

Your district IT team should contact QuaverEd’s integration team at integration@quavered.com!

Step 2: QuaverEd configures our system to support your district’s Schoology SSO integration

We’ll need to set things up on our side first. We’ll generate unique keys and secrets for your district, configure your LTI parameters, and more. Once we have everything ready, we’ll provide you with the key, secret, and launch link you need to set up QuaverEd as an LTI External Tool in Schoology.

Step 3: Set up LTI External Tool in Schoology

  • In your Schoology Admin account, add an External Tool Provider.

    You should be able to find this area via Tools > School Management > Integration > External Tools > Add External Tool Provider. Please see Schoology’s instructions on this for details.
Schoology Provider
  • On the Add External Tool Provider configuration panel, use the following settings:
    • Tool Name: QuaverEd (or QuaverMusic/QuaverSEL/etc. as preferred)
    • Privacy: Send Name and Email/Username of user who launches the tool
    • Configuration Type: Manual
    • Match By: URL
    • Consumer key, Shared secret, and Domain/URL will be provided by our integrations team. They may be specific to your integration and should not be copied from another source.
    • Custom Parameters may be left blank unless otherwise specified by our integrations team.
Schoology Integration

Note that QuaverEd will default use the Schoology user’s email address as the unique identifier and key value to roster data. If your users do not all have unique email addresses in Schoology, please notify the QuaverEd integrations team during the setup process.

Step 4: Testing

Once you have QuaverEd set up as an External Tool in your district’s Schoology instance, we’ll proceed to test. Please note that your SSO integration will be set up in a local testing state, so only a limited number of users can come through. Once we confirm everything seems to be working as expected, we’ll go ahead and release it for everyone to use.

To test the integration, please have a licensed QuaverEd teacher add the External Tool to their Schoology course and select the link to log into QuaverEd through Schoology. They should land on our SSO account provisioning page.

Note: The first-time users log into QuaverEd via Schoology; they will have to go through a one-time account provisioning step. This process allows users who have used QuaverEd in the past to link their existing QuaverEd accounts with their Schoology SSO account. This is particularly important for teachers with registered licenses or customized resources to an existing QuaverEd account.

Learn more about QuaverEd’s SSO account provisioning process.

If you are setting up automated rostering with us as well, when a licensed QuaverEd teacher has successfully logged in through Schoology and reached their Quaver account they should see their rosters activated in QuaverEd.

Step 5: Release

When we have confirmed everything is working as expected, we will release your integration on our end. Teachers can then add the QuaverEd External Tool to any Schoology course to support SSO from Schoology.

Step 6: Support

QuaverEd will continue to support the SSO integration with your district throughout our contract term. We are committed to providing responsive support for our SSO integrations and will work with you to resolve any issues that may arise; if you need to alter your district’s SSO configuration at any time, please notify us before making any changes so that we can provide uninterrupted access for your QuaverEd users.
