Amplify Admin Portal

Admin Portal is a place for all districts, no matter the rostering data source, to: 

  • View summaries of rosters. Teachers will see rosters of their classes. Administrators will see rosters of their campuses and/or districts.
  • View program access.
  • Provide staff members with access to Admin Reports.

Admin Portal as enrollment source: This is the place to manually add or batch upload rosters for staff, students and classes. 

External enrollment source (Clever, Classlink, etc.): This is the place to manage staff and classes.

Rollover

What is rollover?

Rollover is the process Amplify uses to prepare districts for the new school year. Each district needs up-to-date programs for their licenses, as well as up-to-date enrollment data for the new school year.

The rollover process automatically promotes students to the next grade and dissolves all the classes created for the previous school year. No student data is lost during this process. Staff members will continue to have access to Amplify’s programs. Once rollover occurs, students will need to be placed in classrooms for the upcoming school year.

What can I expect?

Timeline:

  • May
    • System access users at the district level will receive an email in May announcing the default rollover date.
  • Mid-June to Aug. 22
    • These users will have the ability to change their rollover date (from mid-June to Aug. 22), so that summer programs are not interrupted. We advise selecting a rollover date occurring one week after your summer programs end, to ensure that all summer data is collected.
  • July 19
    • Traditionally, the default rollover date for Amplify’s products is the third Friday of July (7/19/24).

Important rollover notes:

  • Once a rollover date is selected, it cannot be changed.
  • Once rollover occurs, the school year cannot be “rolled back” to the previous one.
  • Make sure there is at least one System Access User at your district level to receive the notification email.
  • After rollover occurs, you may begin enrolling your new students, including your kindergarten students.

For additional information, please review the Admin Portal: Amplify rollover help article.

Permissions

Certain permissions allow for more capabilities within Admin Portal. Explore the various permissions below.

Standard permissions: 

These are permissions that everyone will see within Admin Portal.

Users will be able to:

  • See the students and classes assigned to them.
  • Generate usernames and passwords for their classes.
  • See rosters for classes they are assigned to.

Reporting permissions:

  • Users will be able to see reports at specific campuses or districtwide.
  • Users will have access to historical data within the mCLASS® system through download your data (DYD) within mCLASS Reporting. 

Enrollment permissions:

Users will be able to:

  • Upload names of staff, students, and classes (if Admin Portal is your rostering data source).
  • Manage staff and classes (if ClassLink, Clever, or GG4L is your external rostering data source).

System permissions:

  • Users will have reporting and enrollment permissions.
  • Users will manage yearly Rollover settings for the district (provided the user is enrolled at the district level).
  • Users can set permissions for other staff members.

License management:

For Amplify English Language Arts (ELA), Amplify Core Knowledge Language Arts®  (CKLA), Caminos, Math, Science, and Boost Close Reading, the Amplify support team designates at least one licensed staff member at your district who can provide access to classes as needed. Amplify will set up access to programs during the onboarding process for all programs, but License Members are given additional permissions to grant access if new classes are added or other users need access and were not granted access during onboarding. 

License Members can: 

  • Receive programs and apply them to classes.
  • Access the programs independently from their assigned classroom.
  • Issue shared student and teacher logins when needed.

Note: Boost Reading and mCLASS are exempt from this, as access is granted for the programs to districts by Amplify upon setup.

Click here for more information.

Shared teacher logins:

The shared teacher login feature enables license managers to grant their teachers and other appropriate staff earlier access using a generic username/password. 

Please note that with these accounts, teachers and staff won’t be able to save data, submit work, or provide feedback to students, as the accounts will be shared by multiple users.

Click here for more information.

Shared student logins:

The shared student login feature enables license managers to grant students earlier access using a generic username/password until their setup has been completed. Shared student logins provide digital program access to students who aren’t yet enrolled by their school or district. One shared student login is generated for each of your programs. This login is shared with all teachers who are associated with the license. Students will not be able to turn in classwork with the shared login credentials.

Shared teacher and student logins are not available for mCLASS products. You can request a demo username and password from your Account Executive or our sales team until your enrollment is completed.

Clever

Important notes

  • Please share: Schools, Students, Teachers, Staff/District Admins, Terms, Sections, Subjects, Grade Levels

Amplify Admin Portal (CSV Upload)

Important notes

  • When filling out a user.CSV file, everything should be unique. (For example, no Class ID should match any other Class ID; emails should be unique to each specific user; user IDs should be unique to each specific user.)
  • The column headers and file name for the .CSV should not be modified 
  • Schools must be created in the Organization pane prior to batch uploading Students, Staff, and Classes
  • If you’re creating users.CSV in a spreadsheet app like Excel or Google Sheets, format columns as text when the requested value could begin with a leading zero. This will prevent leading zeros from being dropped when you save the file in CSV format. To ensure that your leading zeros persist, please cross-verify using a text editor.
  • For Subjects, please copy and paste using the following values: English/language arts, science, math, homeroom/advisory, and other
