Imagine Language & Literacy



If you are new to Imagine Language & Literacy, you'll need to create student accounts. The method you use depends on how many students you need to add, and the Imagine Learning Data Integration team can help with the rostering process.

Add students in Imagine Learning Portal

Small groups

When you are adding fewer than 50 students, you can easily create students individually using the Imagine Learning Portal's Management Tool. This method is ideal for teachers who are creating their own student accounts.

To create a new student

  1. Log in to Imagine Learning Portal.
  2. Go to Management > Students > Add, then click Create new student.
  3. Populate the required fields, then click Create.

Large groups

When you are adding more than 50 students, accounts can be created in bulk by uploading a spreadsheet directly to Imagine Learning Portal using the Management Tool. This process creates schools one at a time, and does not create groups or teacher accounts. This feature is available to Imagine Language & Literacy administrators.

To create students in bulk

  1. Log in to Imagine Learning Portal.
  2. Go to Management > Organization > Add, then click Bulk Create Students.
  3. Download the spreadsheet, then populate columns with student information.
  4. Save and upload the file. See Imagine Learning Portal Help for more information.

Add students with import templates

For large implementations of 200+ students, using import templates to add organizations, groups, students, and users is the best solution. These templates are populated by the school or district from a SIS export, and the templates are imported by Imagine Learning. If you're using this method, you should understand data file management, manipulation, and relationships; be able to extract multiple files from your SIS and provide them to 3rd party application providers or SIS integration services; and be comfortable manipulating rows and columns on comma separated value (CSV) files to accurately represent data relationships.

Download file templates

Choose the file templates you'd like to use and click to download the files. Select OneRoster™ templates only if your SIS exports data in OneRoster™ format.

Submit your files

  1. Download the import templates you'd like to use and prepare your files. See Imagine Learning file specifications, OneRoster™ 1.0 or OneRoster™ 1.1 file specifications for details on populating the import files.
  2. Use the secure form to submit your files to the Imagine Learning Data Integration team.

Upload roster files


Files uploaded with this form are securely transferred via HTTPS to an Imagine Learning Box account, where files are protected with best-in-class security and accessible to members of the Imagine Learning Data Integration team.

Third-party integration

Imagine Language & Literacy can integrate with Clever to load and sync roster data.
