Adding new student accounts to classes in Imagine Math PreK-2

If you are a District Administrator, School Administrator or Educator, you can add new student accounts to a class either individually or in bulk. Individually, means adding one or more student accounts to one class at a time. This method works well when you have only a few student accounts to add to one class. In bulk means adding one or more student accounts to one or more classes all at once, by importing the information from a comma separated value (CSV) file. This method works best when you have many students to add to one or multiple classes. As you add student accounts individually, you have the option to set each student's login credentials, or let the application do it. You can also indicate Individualized Education Program (IEP) students, English Language Learners (ELL), and add each student's support language preference. When you add student accounts in bulk, you can either include these additional settings in the CSV file, or manually add them to each student account later. 


Each student must have a unique Student Identification Number (SIN) within a customer organization, and a unique username within each site code. If you see an error message that says "Username has already been taken," it means that the username is already in use in Imagine Math and you need to choose a different username for the student. If you try to use the Student Identification Number as their username and it is already in use, you can append the SIN with another piece of student information, such as the student's first and last initials or the school abbreviation. 


When you see Managed by SIS next to accounts or classes, it means that your district uses a Student Information System (SIS) integration tool to manage school administrator, educator, class, and student accounts within your district. To update information for these accounts, contact your district's IT staff since they have permissions to make account changes. Even though a student is under a Managed by SIS account, non-sync managed classes assignments can still be added. 

Before you begin:

  • If you see Managed by SIS next to accounts or classes, check with your district's IT staff before adding any students to classes.
  • Review the Adding student accounts to Imagine Math PreK-2 article, to determine if this is the method you want to use for adding your student accounts. 
  • As an Educator (teacher role) who is not yet assigned to a class, you'll need to create a class before adding student accounts. As a District Administrator or School Administrator, you'll have the opportunity to add the class at the beginning of the process.
  • Make sure you have at least the following information to successfully add each student account; first and last name, Student Information Numbers (SIN) or Student ID, and grade level.

  12. Review the entries and selections.


    If you see an error message about a username already being taken, it means the username is already in use through the Imagine Math system, and usernames cannot be used by more than one student account. If you are attempting to use a student's ID number (or SIN) as a username, and it is already in use within Imagine Math currently, we recommend adding the ID to another piece of information such as the student's first and last initial or school abbreviation. These additions will help make your student's username unique. For example, John Smith, student ID 39487603 could be js39487603 or 39487603js.

  13. Click Confirm Changes if everything is OK.
