How do I import grades from PowerGrade into my Grades page?

Importing Grade Records from PowerGrade

  • Open your grades file and select "Reports" > "Custom Export". 

  • In the window that appears, select the fields you want displayed in the order you want them displayed. The first field must be the Student Name field (e.g., "Last, First"), and the second field must be the Student Number field. You can then select other fields that contain student information. To select the appropriate fields, drag each field name from "Student Fields" to "Export Fields". You can drag the field names under "Export Fields" to reorder them. 

  • At this point, please make sure that under Delimiters, "Tab" is selected for Field and "CR" is selected for Record. Also, place a check mark in the box next to "Column titles on 1st row" (these are the default settings).

  • Click on the "Export" button. In the Save window, give your file a name that ends with the ".txt" file extension (e.g., Sample.txt), choose an easy to remember place to save your file (such as the Desktop) and click "Save".

  • To import this file, go to your Update Grades page, select "I want to import a file I have created, or a file that my gradebook exported", and then select "PowerGrade" from the "How would you like to load your Grades information" drop-down box.

  • Make sure "First Row in File contains important header information" is checked, select the text file that was exported from PowerGrade and click "Upload File".  Your grades will be imported and an "Import Succeeded" message will be displayed at the bottom of the page.
