Teacher Import

9/13/20

The Teacher Import will populate the Teachers’ first name, last name, teacher ID and teacher email in the Teacher tab area without having to create a full data file. This will not assign the teachers to any classes or students. If only a Teacher Import is done in the account, the staff will need to manually add their own classes and students. GradeCam recommends the Combined Import for the account set up.

The Data File that was extracted from the Student Information System (SIS) can be used for the Teacher Import.

The Teacher Import file should include the following data fields:

  • Teacher First Name – List teacher’s first name  
  • Teacher Last Name – List teacher’s last name 
  • Teacher Email – List teacher’s email address (Note: A teacher email is required to be able to connect the staff to the school/district account with an Invitation Email).
  • Teacher ID – A name or number the school/district uses to identify a teacher (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.

01. Import Teacher File

Note: The same data file extracted from the SIS for the Combined Import can be used for the Teacher Import, a file can be extracted with just the teacher information from the SIS for the import or manually create a spreadsheet with the required fields.

1.1 In Admin Mode, select "Teachers" tab on the home page.

1.2 Select the "New" button (1) and choose "Import Teachers" from the drop-down menu (2).

1.3 Select or drag the Data File (formatted .csv, .tsv, .xls or .xlsx).

1.4 Select the row from the data file that contains the field header information (1) (if there is no header row then choose "No Header" from the drop down menu) and then select the "Next" button (2).

1.5 Select the correct "Teacher" information for each field from the drop-down menus (1) and then select the "Next" button (2).

1.6 Preview the changes listed and then select the "Run Import" button.

1.7 You will be asked to verify that you want to run the import before moving on to the next step.

1.8 Once the import has been completed successfully select the "Done" button.

02. Teacher Invites

Once the Teacher Import has been successfully completed, the admin will want to send out the Teacher Invitation Emails to allow the staff to join the school/district GradeCam account. Once the invitation email has been accepted, the classes and students will be available for the staff in Teacher Mode.
