Understanding the Product Portal and manual rostering tools in the Literacy and MyPath suite


This article applies to the following products:

  • Imagine Language & Literacy, Imagine Español, Imagine Reading, and Imagine Lectura
  • Imagine Galileo K–12
  • Imagine MyPath, Imagine Science Corner, Imagine Purpose

If your school or district has selected to use the manual rostering tools to import new student accounts and make changes to existing student accounts, you will access these tools via the Product Portal available immediately after login.


Check with an administrator if you're unsure whether you need to roster your own students or if your students will be rostered for you.

The Product Portal

When logging in to your Imagine Learning products, the Product Portal opens, with a tile for each product your organization has purchased.

On the right side of this page, Administrators have a direct link to the Cumulative Performance report for Imagine Language & Literacy, Imagine Español, and/or Imagine MyPath.

Also on the right side of the page, both Teachers and Administrators can access the tools needed to create classes/groups and roster students. There are 2 sets of tools:

  • New tools introduced in the summer of 2024: Use these for a streamlined, updated manual rostering experience. Later this year, these will be the only manual rostering tools available.
  • Legacy tools: The original manual rostering tools. These will be removed after back-to-school season. In the meantime, use these if you want a "tried-and-true" rostering experience to start the new school year without a learning curve.

Legacy Rostering Tools

The available Legacy manual rostering tools are:

  • Setup Wizard - import new students, edit or reactivate/unarchive existing students, and assign students to groups and products. You also have the option to create new users or edit existing users in bulk by uploading a spreadsheet. 
  • Manage Students - add new student accounts, edit existing student accounts, reactivate archived student accounts, and, depending on the product, change product settings such as language support or session time.
  • Manage Staff - add new staff accounts one at a time and edit existing staff accounts. This option is available only for Administrators.
  • Manage Groups - create new groups (classrooms) or edit existing ones. 

Once student accounts are created, you can assign and manage access to multiple products simultaneously.  Follow the directions in the Self-Managed Rostering sub-sections of the Setup and Account Management page of the Help Center for more detailed instructions. 


If your school uses a Student Information System (SIS) that syncs regularly with Imagine Learning, all new students should be added to the SIS and their information will be sent to Imagine Learning on the next file, thereby creating their account. You should only add students individually if your school performs self-managed or one-time assisted rostering

The same is true for many types of account edits—the changes must be made in the SIS and this will carry over to the Imagine Learning products via file synchronization. In fact, for SIS customers, certain fields will be locked from editing within the Imagine Learning products. 

Fields without a lock may be updated within the program at any time.
