Rostering

 

Blueprint is now called Imagine Math Pre-K-2 and can be found at math.imaginelearning.com

Overview

There are different ways that you can roster your students in Imagine Math: self-service rostering, assisted rostering, or rostering through third-party integration with a SIS provider.

  • Self-service rostering (where you use the Imagine Math portal to roster your staff and students in bulk or individually)
  • Assisted rostering (where you prepare your data files using specific roster templates and then upload them to the Imagine Learning Rostering team to be rostered)
  • Third-party integration (where you integrate with a SIS provider using a third-party service to load and sync roster data)

The rostering method that you choose depends on how many student accounts you need to add and whether your school or district is using a third-party SIS provider. If you are adding 50 or less student accounts, we recommend that you use self-service rostering. If you are adding 200 or more student accounts, we recommend that you use assisted rostering. If you are using a SIS provider, we recommend that you follow the third-party integration instructions to sync data from your SIS provider.

If your roster file has more than 200 rows in it, it may not look like it's uploading correctly. To upload large roster files, please contact rostering@imaginelearning.com or create smaller files for your roster data.

Assisted Rostering

Assisted rostering allows you to roster students using templates populated with your roster data. Then you can upload your roster files to the Imagine Learning Data Rostering team to ensure that all your staff and students are rostered successfully. You and your district might be good candidates for Assisted Rostering if you have a better-than-average understanding of data file management and data manipulation and:

  • You have at least 3 schools that you need to onboard.
  • You're already extracting multiple files from your SIS and providing them to 3rd party application providers or SIS integration services.
  • You understand data relationships.
  • You're comfortable manipulating rows and columns on comma separated value (CSV) files to accurately represent data relationships.

Download the roster file templates

Download the roster file templates below. You can use the Simplified Roster templates or the Traditional Roster templates to prepare your data. Use the OneRoster™ templates only if your SIS can export data in the OneRoster™ format.

Populate the roster file templates with your data

Depending on the templates that you downloaded, click the file specifications below for instructions on how to populate your roster files with the correct data.

Upload your roster files to Imagine Learning

Upload your roster files to the Imagine Learning Rostering team using the secure form below. The files you upload are securely transferred via HTTPS to an Imagine Learning Box account, where these files are protected with best-in-class security and accessible only to members of the Imagine Learning Rostering team.

Third-party integration

 

If you are using a SIS provider, you can work with the Imagine Learning Rostering team to sync and load roster data using a third-party integration service like Clever or ClassLink.
