Adding new student accounts/Reactivating archived student accounts in the Literacy and MyPath suite


This article applies to the following products:

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

In order for your students to use Imagine Learning products, they must have a student account. Administrators can add new accounts (or reactivate existing accounts) for any students, and Teachers can add new student accounts (or reactivate existing accounts) to their groups.

A student account is reactivated (unarchived) if the Student ID matches what was previously in the account. All other data fields remain the same if they match what was previously in that student's account. If they are different, the new data overrides the previous data. For example, if the student's name was Jonathan in the archived account and is Jon at the time of reactivation, the student's name will be listed as Jon from now on. The student's lesson progress and Placement test score will also be reactivated, but usage and achievement data, Benchmark scores, and Booster Bits will not.


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 as outlined in this article if your school performs self-managed or one-time assisted rostering

The most common use case for following the steps below is for new students who enter your class or school after initial rostering is complete.

When you add a student account manually, you'll need to enter the following information:

  • School or organization
  • Group(s) to which the student should be assigned
  • First and last name
  • Student ID
  • Alternate ID (Optional)
  • Grade level
  • Username
  • Password
