My school is using Clever. How do I match courses with sections in my SIS?

Note: The Summit Learning Platform team is currently in the process of improving enrollment through Clever. The instructions below are only for those schools who have already been using Clever. If you're interested in using Clever in 2017-18, stay tuned for updates!

If your school isn't using Clever, you'll need to manually set up courses with signup codes.

If your school is using Clever, you’ll need to sync the Summit Learning Platform with Clever to ensure that your teachers, students and sections stay up to date. We recommend that you begin this process at least 3 weeks before the school year begins. Once the platform is synced with Clever, teachers, students and sections from your Student Information System (SIS) will automatically update on a daily basis. However, keep in mind that you’ll need a process to share any new teachers, students or sections (ex: if a new student enrolls, or a new section is created) with Clever throughout the school year so that the platform remains up to date. Learn more about syncing sections with Clever, and matching courses in the Summit Learning Platform with sections in your SIS.

Once your district has connected to Clever, you can sync the platform with Clever. We recommend that you designate one person on your team to do this for your school.

Once you’ve synced sections, you’ll need to match courses you plan on using in the platform with the sections you teach. For example, if you teach M101, you’ll want students enrolled in M101 to be assigned to the Math 6 course in the platform.

Matching Courses with Sections

To match courses in the platform with sections:

  1. Click on the Setup section from the menu on the left.
  2. Click Courses. You’ll see a list of all courses in the platform.
  3. Under Course Number, enter the course number of the section from your SIS that you’d like to match to a course in the platform. If you don’t know your course number, click on Setup from the menu on the left, then click Sections. Course numbers are listed next to their respective section names.
  4. If each course you plan on using in the platform can be matched with a course number of a section from your SIS, you don’t need to include any information about Specific Sections. If course numbers aren’t available, or if you want to assign students in certain sections to an entirely different course in the platform, you can enter section names in the Specific Sections column.

Once you’ve matched courses with sections, click Save Changes. It will take about 10 minutes for students to appear in their courses.

Note: These changes will affect all teachers at your school. You can come back to this page to make changes throughout the school year.
