You may be wondering if there's a simple way to copy existing classrooms and students from Typing Agent into Yeti Academy - and there is! To do this, here are the following conditions you'll need to be mindful of and make sure are met:
When copying classrooms and students from Typing Agent into Yeti Academy:
The only user in Typing Agent that can transfer to Yeti Academy is a School Administrator. This means that teachers and district administrators will not have the ability to transfer a school over to Yeti Academy. As a District Admin you do have the ability to "Login As" the "school admin" and perform the function to create each schools instant Yeti Account.
Only one school can be moved at a time.
Yeti Academy does not use SSO from Typing Agent, Clever or Classlink.
Yeti Academy is only mirrored from Typing Agent's current classroom structure and students.
A unique username is needed for each school that is transferred to log into Yeti Academy as a school Administrator. We suggest using this format: [schoolname] + firstname.lastname@example.org. This way, you'll have a unique username for each school that is created when transferring.
A unique web address will be made for each school automatically when transferring data from Typing Agent to Yeti Academy, and each school will get a custom school domain. Students will have to log into Yeti Academy by going to the Yeti Academy site. When the school's domain is set up, students will go to https://[yourschooldomain].yetiacademy.com and enter their username and password.
Students can only be in one school with their unique username.
Additionally, if you're rostering with Clever, there are more special conditions to be aware of:
Clever rostering only works with Typing Agent but you can still create your free Yeti Academy account by creating a school admin account with a csv. (Yeti Academy will have additional rostering methods available soon.)
District Administrators should ensure that School Administrators are associated with their current Typing Agent account. This way, the school administrators will see the banner that allows them to transfer their schools into Yeti Academy.
School Administrators are rostered in Typing Agent from Clever only using their Clever ID as their username. School administrators will need to enter in a new username, and it is recommended to use their e-mail address.
Teachers are not moved when setting up a school in Yeti Academy. They can be rostered after moving over using a CSV file. For further assistance on adding your staff to Yeti Academy, click here.
(If your district has rostered using Clever, be sure that your teachers' and students' usernames follow the credentials.district_username format. If they don't, they will have to put in that 16 character alphanumeric username that Clever assigned to them. You will need to have your Clever admin adjust their usernames then when the nightly sync is done, they will be updated then we can pull that data over into Yeti Academy.)
