Before You Begin

Part 1: Pull Google Classroom API Data into Sheets

For this example, we'll pull in a list of the courses you have access to.

  1. Open up Google Sheets and click Extensions > API Connector > Open > Create request.
  2. In the request form enter the following:
    • ApplicationCustom
    • MethodGET
    • Request URLhttps://classroom.googleapis.com/v1/courses
    • OAuth: Google Classroom
  3. When you select Google Classroom from the OAuth menu, you'll see a blue Connect button if you haven't already authorized the connection. Click through to enable.
  4. Create a new tab and click Set current to use that tab as your data destination.
  5. Name your request and click Run. A moment later you’ll see a list of your courses populate your sheet.

Part 2: More Example API Requests

For the full set of endpoints check the API documentation here. If you want to get an idea how it works, you can also check these examples:

  • List course announcements (get your courseId value from the previous request):
https://classroom.googleapis.com/v1/courses/{courseId}/announcements
  • List class coursework
https://classroom.googleapis.com/v1/courses/{courseId}/courseWork

Part 3: Handle Pagination

By default, Google will limit records to 30 unless the pageSize parameter is used.

To cycle through additional pages of data, set up pagination handling like this:

  • Pagination: cursor
  • Next token parameter: pageToken
  • Next token path: nextPageToken
    googleclassroom-pagination-cursor
