Add Students to Classes

If the admin chooses not to upload classes and students with a Combined Import, students can be added to each class manually or with a Student Import file.

Any related demographic information for the students will need to be added as demographic fields to the data file for the Combined Import. The admin will need to set Custom Fields before starting the Combined Import process.

The Student Import file should include the following data fields:

  • Student First Name – List student’s first name (Note: Create one line for each class a student is enrolled)
  • Student Last Name – List student’s last name (Note: Create one line for each class a student is enrolled)  
  • Student ID – Unique ID for each student (Note: This ID should match the oen used in the school’s SIS and should be unique for each student)  
  • GradeCam ID – Does not have to be unique to each student but it is recommended that the student Unique ID is also used for the GradeCam ID. (optional)

Note: This option is not available on free or paid single-teacher accounts. Please contact sales@gradecam.com to upgrade to a school or district license.
