Overview of Rostering

GradeCam provides 3 options for rostering that include a nightly automated sync with Clever or ClassLink and an import file method to update terms, staff, classes, and students. The benefits of using a roster sync solution (Clever or ClassLink) are:

  1. Your setup of Gradient is a breeze taking minutes not weeks
  2. Your leaders don’t burn out because they can set it and forget it when it comes to their rosters each term
  3. Your teachers (and students) can login with Google, Clever, or ClassLink and don’t have to learn a new password
  4. Your reports are consistent and your data is reliable because it’s not being manually entered
  5. Your staff can take advantage of integrations with Canvas and Schoology

Sync with Clever

  • Once you and your Clever Lead have verified that the data in Clever for the terms and schools you need looks accurate, contact support@gradecam.com and we will enable the Clever sync from our end.

  • Sync with ClassLink

  • Import a File

    Gradient rostering can be completed by importing a file containing the schools, terms, staff, classes and students.
