At the beginning of a new school year or when you first start using the Imagine Learning Literacy Suite (Imagine Language & Literacy, Imagine Español, Imagine Lectura, Imagine Reading, or Imagine Assessment: Galileo), you'll need to create staff and student accounts, assign student accounts to groups, and assign product access to students for the products that you want them to log in to.
You can create accounts and groups in bulk by importing roster data into the Imagine Learning Literacy Suite or you can create accounts and groups individually. The Setup Wizard shows you how to create staff or student accounts and groups (in bulk or individually), assign product access, and update any default product settings. If you have already created your staff or student accounts, you can use the Setup Wizard to assign existing student accounts to a group or change their product access.
Watch this video to determine if self-rostering is the right choice for you, choose whether to roster accounts individually or in bulk by importing roster data, and learn how to roster student accounts.
If you are an Administrator, you can use the Setup Wizard to create staff and student accounts; if you are a Teacher, you can create student accounts. Both Administrators and Teachers can create or import new accounts or groups, assign students to groups, and assign product access to students.
The Setup Wizard walks you through these steps:
- Launching the Setup Wizard
- Adding Staff accounts individually
- Adding Student accounts individually
- Assigning products to students
- Changing the default product settings

Assigning products to students
Once you have created any new staff or student accounts and assigned them to a group, you can assign product access to students for any Literacy Suite products that your organization (district or school) has purchased. Once you have assigned product access to students, they can log into that product and begin using it.
Staff member accounts automatically inherit the product access of the organization they are assigned to.
To assign products to students
- For each student account, click the checkbox for each product that you want to assign to that student.
To assign the same product access to all the students in the list, click the checkbox at the top of the column, next to the name of the product. (For example, to assign all students access to Imagine Language & Literacy, click the checkbox at the top of the column, next to the Imagine Language & Literacy column name.)
If you assigned access to Imagine Language & Literacy or Imagine Español for any students, you can change the default product settings.
- Click Next.
Changing the default product settings
Once you assign product access to student accounts, you can review and update any default settings for that product. Default settings include the language support that students receive while they use the Imagine Learning Literacy products and the desired student session time.
To change the default product settings
- Change the Session Time (in minutes) for the Literacy Suite product assigned to each student.
You can assign session times for Imagine Language & Literacy and Imagine Español. Session time is the minimum amount of time (in minutes) that students are assigned to use Literacy products during a single session.
- Choose the Language Support for each student.
Language Support is the audio language that each student hears when they use Imagine Language & Literacy or Imagine Español. By default, the audio language for Imagine Language & Literacy is English and the audio language for Imagine Español is Spanish.
Imagine Reading or Imagine Assessment: Galileo do not have default settings to review or modify.
- Review the Product Assignment Summary. This shows which students have been assigned products and the default product settings you chose for each student.
- Click Done.
- Verify that your students can log in to the products that you granted them access to.
