If you are a teacher, you can add students directly within your class if permitted by your administrator. This makes it easier to create a class, then add in new students, or simply add a single student if someone new has joined.

Students can be added in the following ways:

  • In bulk with a CSV file

  • Through Google Classroom

  • By a single student upload

  • By student self-registration (in which students create their own usernames and passwords as they enroll into your classroom).


CSV

You can upload your students via a CSV file to easily add, update and delete student information by this bulk file upload. When you import your students, you'll be given a template of how your CSV file should look. Additionally, you can download a sample template and just edit it in a spreadsheet program of your choice,



(* Note: the program accepts letters and numbers, and the special characters _(underscore), -(dash), and @(at).)

First, go to the Classes tab from your Dashboard.



Then, select the name of your classroom that you'd like to add students into to access it.



From here, select the blue + icon with the student beside it.



Now, select Import Students.



From here, you will be directed to upload your CSV file.


Syncing with Google Classroom


If you have added a classroom via Google Classroom and imported your students, you can add a singular student from your classroom by syncing.

First, go to the Classes tab from your Dashboard.



Then, select the name of your classroom that you'd like to add students into to access it.



Then, select the Sync With Classroom button.



This will add any new students from your Google Classroom.

Single Student Upload

You can add your students one at a time to either your classroom directly, one by one. This may be easy if you're only looking to quickly add a new student.


First, go to the Classes tab from your Dashboard.



Then, select the name of your classroom that you'd like to add students into to access it.



From here, select the blue + icon with the student beside it.



Now, select Add A Single Student.



Now, you can fill out the parameters to add the student into the class.


Block Student Upload

You can also add multiple students at once directly into a class by uploading them in bulk.

(*Please note: creating a block of students will give them all the same username and password and once assigned, will append a unique number to the end of each username. You can allow them to update their First Name and Last Name and/or Password upon their first log-in. This method is convenient for creating multiple accounts at once without needing to be too specific on student details.)


First, go to the Classes tab from your Dashboard.



Then, select the name of your classroom that you'd like to add students into to access it.



From here, select the blue + icon with the student beside it.



Now, select Add A Block Of Students.



Now, you can fill out the parameters to add a block of students into the class.


Student Self Registration (Class Code Required)

If your school or district administrator has allowed Student Self-Registration on your webpage, you can enable a class code. This is going to let your students sign themselves into your class, so that they will be creating their own account.

First, go to the Classes tab from your Dashboard.



Then, select the name of your classroom that you'd like to add students into to access it.



From here, select the blue + icon with the student beside it.



Now, select Add Students With Class Code.



From here, you will see that Class Code is by default, disabled. All you need to do is press Enable.



You can edit this class code or leave it as is - but this code is what students will sign in with.



When your students navigate to your school's Typing Agent page, they will see an option for Student Self-Registration.



This is where they will register, enter this code, and enroll into your class.
