How do I set up semester/quarter long courses?

If your school does not follow a year-long schedule, we can change students' Year page so that it fits your school's semester or quarter schedule. After following the below steps, courses will adjust on student Year page to match the semester or quarter schedule:

To change the course dates:

  1. Admins will need to ensure the courses are set up. You can either use existing courses or copy desired courses. Retitle these courses to distinguish the semester. We suggest using an easy format such as "Course Name-Grade- Semester/Quarter- Year" (example Math 4-Spring 2019).

  2. After setting up the courses, create a .CSV to show the course name, course ID, start date, and end date.

    Here is a template that you can use to start your .CSV file. 

    See below for an example of what the spreadsheet should look like:

    You can find course IDs in the URL. Click into each course and the Course ID is the 6 digit sequence at the end of the URL.

    The Data Uploader tool is highly case-sensitive and requires exact spelling. Please double-check that your course name and column names such as "Course ID" is spelled correctly and exactly the same as it is on the platform.

    For example:
    https://www.summitlearning.org/v2/teacher/courses/111111
    Course ID: 111111

  3. Submit a ticket to the Help Desk with the .CSV file.
