As the school administrator of a single, standalone school, you are responsible for loading your schools, 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: staff, classrooms, then students.
Classrooms can be added in the following ways:
- Manually loading CSV files as School Admin or as a Teacher
- Through a third-party rostering system such as ClassLink, Clever or Google Classroom
- By individual class upload
(Note: In order to format correctly, CSV files needs to be saved as a UTF-8 encoded file.)
CSV files are comma-separated files that can be made and read in an Excell spreadsheet. Many schools export these files from their Student Management systems.
You can upload your classes in bulk via a CSV file to Typing Agent. Upon the prompt to upload, you will be able to download a template in order to ensure all the correct fields are filled.
Note: the program accepts letters, numbers, and the special characters _ (underscore), - (dash), and @ (at).
You can upload your classes via CSV file by navigating to your Admin button from your Dashboard, then selecting School Management from the drop down.
Now, select Upload Your Classes.
From here, you will be directed to upload your CSV file.
Individual Upload or Importing From Google Classroom
You can upload your classes individually by navigating to the green + Classroom button from your class bar on the left-hand side of the screen.
Now, you can choose to either add a class individually by choosing Enter your class name, or import your class from Google.
Adding an individual class will allow you to fill out a webform to simply add a class. If you choose to import your class from Google classroom, you will be asked to link a Google account.
