How to upload students to your school account
Step 1 – Add student information
Please click on the link students-nps.csv and save this file to an easy-to-find location on your computer.
Open this file in Microsoft Excel, OpenOffice or a compatible spreadsheet application. The document allows you to upload student information to Math-Whizz, and will look like the example below. Enter information in each column.
- When entering a year group, you can either enter the number of the year group. I.e. Year 5 could be entered as 5; Foundation could be entered as F.
- You can enter your own password (5 digits or more) in the ‘Password’ column. If you leave the password column empty, a random 5 digit password will be generated automatically.
- The two examples that are highlighted in yellow can be deleted from the spreadsheet; please do not delete the heading in row 1.
Step 2 – Save to CSV format
Once you have finished entering information for each student you are now ready to upload the file. Save the file first – select “Save As”, and specify ‘.csv’, or ‘comma-separated values’ file. Please name the file so that you can easily find it when you are ready to upload.
