As the school administrator of a single, standalone school, you are responsible for loading your classrooms, staff, and students into Typing Agent. The most efficient and error-proof way to get your school's data set up is to load them in this order:  classrooms, then staff, then students. 

Staff can be added in the following ways:

  • In bulk with a CSV file (which can be automated using our SFTP nightly upload process - please contact us at support@typingagent.com if you would like to set this up)
  • Through a third-party rostering system such as ClassLink, Clever or Google Classroom
  • By individual staff upload
  • By teacher self-registration (in which staff create their own usernames and passwords as they enroll into your school). 

CSV

There are two methods of uploading your staff using a CSV file. Sample CSV templates are available wherever the uploading of staff is permitted. They detail the information required to complete each column to have a successful upload.

Note: the program accepts letters, numbers, and the special characters _ (underscore), - (dash), and @ (at).

Method 1:

You can upload your staff via CSV file by navigating to Upload from your Dashboard.

From here, you will be directed to upload your CSV file.

 

Method 2:

You can upload your staff using a CSV file by navigating to User Management from your Dashboard.

From here, select the green + Students & Staff button.

Now, select Import Staff. 

From here, you will be directed to upload your CSV file.

Individual Staff

You can add your staff one at a time to your school so that you can assign them a classroom.

First, navigate to User Management from your Dashboard.

Then, select the green + Students & Staff button.

Now, select Add Individual Staff.

Now, you can fill out the webform to add a single staff member into Typing Agent.

 

Teacher Self-Registration (School Code Required)

There are two steps required to enable teacher self-registration with a class code. First, you will need to enable a self-registration link on your accounts unique login page.

 To do this, navigate to your Admin button, then to School Management.

From here, select School Portal.

 

Scroll all the way down until you see a checkbox under Sign up Options - select Allow Teachers Sign up. The school code is the code that they will sign in with.

 

 

When your staff members navigate to your school's Typing Agent page, they will see an option for Teacher Self-Registration. Click Teacher Self-Registration button

 This is where they will register, enter the school code, and enroll into your school.
