Upload Class CSV

This topic covers how to upload multiple classes into Engrade from a CSV spreadsheet. 

  1. Select Classes on the left sidebar to view your school’s list of active classes.

  2. To create classes using a CSV upload, hover over the Create New Class button, and select Upload Class CSV from the drop-down menu.

  3. Select Download a CSV template here in the blue box on the right side of the page.

  4. Open the CSV file in Microsoft Excel, and fill out the required rows and columns. You may upload up to 100 classes at a time.

    Do not change the column headers, as this will prevent a successful file upload.

  5. The required CSV columns and their values include:

    • Class Name: Enter the name of the class.
    • Period: Enter the period of the class.
    • Grade Level: Enter the grade level of the class (0-14, 99).
    • Subject Code: Enter the subject code of the class (1-99).
    • Weight (Optional): Enter the weight of the class.
    • Honors (Optional): Enter the honors status of the class (0/1).
    • Primary Teacher (Optional): Enter the primary teacher’s Engrade teacher ID number. (see here for information on exporting Teacher IDs)

  6. If you are using a Windows computer, save the file as a Comma Separated Values (.csv) file.

  7. If you are using a Mac computer, you will need to save your CSV file in a slightly different format. If you use the default Comma Separated Values (.csv) file format, you may be unable to upload your file.

    • Open the file in Excel, and select File and Save As.
    • Under Format, select Windows Comma Separated (.csv) from the drop-down and save your file.

  8. Select the School Year and Grading Period from the drop-down menus at the top of the page in which you would like to create your new classes.

  9. Once your file is complete and saved to your computer as a .CSV, select Choose File on the Upload Class List page.

  10. Select your CSV file from your computer.

  11. Click the green Upload CSV button to upload the classes to your school account. Your new classes will then appear on the Classes page in the school year/grading period you selected.
