How do I import my student roster for a district wide implementation?
District Administrators can import a student roster for all students at all schools in a district. Student accounts will be assigned to the appropriate grades levels, classes and schools.
Make sure your data conforms to the specifications for each Track My Progress field
For example, you cannot have a hyphen in the first name filed, and usernames must be at least three characters.
Prepare your import sheet
Prepare a spreadsheet with student first name, last name, username, password, grade, class and school ID. Student middle initial and Student ID are optional fields. Save your file in csv format. Please refer to this article for information on importing students to multiple classes.
Click your name, then click District
Locate and choose the spreadsheet that you have prepared for your import.
Click File Contains Headers if the top row of your file has headers
If your csv file has headers for each column, then you can click the check box next to 'File contains headers'
Match each title to the corresponding column
The title is the information that Track My Progress requires to import accounts. The value is the data from the columns on your uploaded spreadsheet. If the titles and values do not match, use the drop down menu to select the appropriate title.
If there is an error in your spreadsheet, it will appear in red and will need to be corrected and then uploaded again. If you are updating student accounts with a new grade level or class assignment, a warning will appear in yellow letting you know how many accounts will be updated.
