How do I roster students into classes?

Sadlier Connect administrators and teachers can add students to a class individually or import a class roster file. You will need to set up teachers, students, and classes before completing the steps below.

Your Sadlier Connect administrator can turn off the functionality described below for teacher users. If you cannot complete the task as an instructor, please check with your Sadlier Connect administrator.

Manage Classes Page

  • Log in to Sadlier Connect using your teacher or administrator account. 
  • Click the settings icon on the screen's top-right corner.
  • Select Manage Classes.

If you already created your class and need to edit the students in the class, click the pencil icon and select Edit Class on the Manage Classes screen.

Adding Students to a Class Manually

  • Check the box next to the students you want to add to the Class.
  • Click the Update Students in Class button.
If you are looking for one student or a few, it may be easier to use the filter to enter the student's last name.

Class Roster Import File Template

  • In the Manage Classes screen, click Import Class Rosters.

The template file is a   Comma Separated Values (CSV) file. A CSV is a plain text file with a list of data. Use Excel, Google Docs Spreadsheet, Numbers (mac application), or similar software to edit the CSV.

Creating the Class Roster Import File

Most import file columns are required. Do not alter the columns' order or leave out information in a required column to avoid errors. The first two rows are example data.

Column Letter Column Label Description
A Teacher User Name (Required) The teacher's username entered in the file must match the username loaded into the system.  
B Class Name (Required) The class needs to exist for the specified teacher in Column A.
C School PID (Optional - District Only) Leave this field blank.
D Student User Name (Required) The student username is the one you set up when you created your student accounts.

Saving the Class Roster Import File

  • Please remember to remove the example rows before saving your Class Roster Import File. 
  • Save your Class Roster Import File by selecting  "File > Save As..."
  • On the File Format section of the Save As screen, set it to Comma Separated Values (.csv).

Sadlier Connect will only import Comma Separated Values (.csv) file formats. Please be sure to select the correct file format, Comma Separated Values (.csv), when saving your file. 

Uploading the Class Roster Import File

  • Return to the Import Class Rosters page in Sadlier Connect.
  • Click the "Choose File" button and find the CSV file you created. 
  • Click the Continue button.

Sadlier Connect will check the import file for errors. The example below shows the teacher's username does not exist. Please notice the scroll bar above the columns if you need information on an error. If you receive an error on any rows, they will not import, and you should fix them in the file and upload the new saved CSV. When the file is error-free, click the Import Classes button.
