Easily deactivate students not in the roll (and keep current Students Active)

This is definitely a great week for Accudemia, it’s the 3rd update we've published!

This time the update was to make data administrators’ lives easier.  Whether for software security or licensing purposes administrators have to deactivate students that are not longer in the current enrollment data for the semester.  If you have a list of active students, now you can check this checkbox option in the Accudemia Data eXchange (or ADX - our import tool) that will inactivate any student that is not in that import CSV file.  This option states “Inactivate students not being imported” and is disabled by default so that you'll have to enable it to use this feature.

Import options

As an example:
  • In the first import CSV file for the semester you have four students (A, B, C and D) and you upload it to Accudemia all those students will be active.
  • And the next CSV file you’re uploading only has A, C and D which will keep them active.
  • The end result using this option will have B become inactive in Accudemia.
Please note that the students you are uploading will not get activated automatically however unless you specify it in the CSV file.  To make the students you upload active you still need to add an “Active” column in your CSV file with the value “Yes”, "True" or “1” on each record.  Here you have an example of how to do so:

StudentID,Active
123123,Yes
849848,Yes
266484,Yes

Referrals and Early Alert System Quick Start

I decided to write a quick step-by-step guide to start using the Referral and Early Alert System (AREAS). I hope it will help you get started with the software in just a couple minutes. In this post everything is done by hand, that means that you are going to have to type all student names, subject areas and all the information you might need. Once you have the whole thing up and running you probably will import all the other information; so I suggest you to start creating one or 2 students, one or 2 instructors, and so on. If it’s the first time you access Accudemia, maybe you went through the initial Configuration Wizard which let’s you setup the basic stuff. In this guide we will verify all the required information is there, and create it if it is not. 1. Create the Staff Accounts: It’s always a good point to start; once you have created the administrator accounts in Accudemia they can help you to setup all the other things. You can do it from the User Accounts menu. Just make su
