Getting Started – Student Access

Once your class lists have been uploaded to the site, Mangahigh will generate individual log in details for each student.  You can find these log in details by going to “Admin” in the top navigation bar and clicking on “Teacher Admin” in the drop-down list.

 

Select the relevant class from the drop-down list, and each student’s Backup User ID and Backup Password will be displayed next to their name. You can print a PDF of these log in details to distribute to your students.  To do this, tick all the students and click on “Print All Logins”.

To log on to Mangahigh, your students will need to go to your Unique School URL.  To find this, look at the top of your Teacher Admin page:

“Your pupils should access Mangahigh via: http://schools.mangahigh.com/(Your URL ending)”

When students first log on, they will have the opportunity to create personalised log in details that are more memorable. Once this has been done, students will be able to log on with both their backup login details and the login details they have specified.

If you specified personalised usernames and passwords on your .XLSX or .CSV document when you uploaded your student roster, please note that these will not be displayed on the site; you will need to keep a separate record of these. The Backup User IDs and Passwords will be displayed next to your students’ names, and these will work in addition to the log in details that you provided.

Additional teachers can be added to your Mangahigh account by selecting the “Faculty” button on the Teacher Admin page.

Click on “Add Teacher” and enter your colleague’s first name, last name and email address. Once you have clicked save, they will be emailed with their own personal log in details. Each teacher added to the site in this manner will have exactly the same access to your School’s Mangahigh account as you currently have.

Getting Started – Adding Your Class Roster

Adding a class to your Mangahigh account is very simple. You will firstly need to create either a .XLSX or .CSV file with your students’ first names, last names and their class in 3 separate columns. You can also specify usernames, passwords and unique identifiers if you wish.  All classes you want to upload should be listed on the same worksheet of the spreadsheet.

Go to “Admin” in the top navigation bar and click on “Teacher Admin” in the drop-down list.

On the Teacher Admin page, go to the “Bulk Import/Update” tab. Upload your spreadsheet at the bottom of the page and select “Import New Roster”.


When your spreadsheet is uploaded, you will need to input the column headings by selecting the correct column header in the drop-down boxes.

The next step is to specify whether the roster you are uploading is a Full Student Roster or a Partial Student Roster.


If the spreadsheet you are uploading contains the names of all pupils at your school who will be using Mangahigh, you should select “Full Student Roster”.  With this option, any pre-existing students who are not listed on your new spreadsheet are identified as having left the school and are moved to the Leavers folder.  If you are adding additional students to a pre-existing Mangahigh account, you should make sure to select “Partial Student Roster” to avoid sending the rest of your school to the Leavers folder.

You will then be taken through the update wizard, which will automatically upload the students from your spreadsheet.

Next, you will be taken through the matching process. The system will pair up names with similarities, and ask you to confirm if the names in question represent the same student or not.  If they represent the same student, they should remain linked.  If they are two separate students, you need to deselect the link in the middle of the two names.  This process is essential for ensuring that student data is maintained and that multiple accounts are not set up for the same student.  The matching process is particularly beneficial when you come to update your students’ classes at the start of a new academic year.

When you get to the manual matching section at the end of the update wizard, you need to specify what should happen to each student account in question.  For existing records, you can designate the student as a leaver or as an unchanged account.  For new records, you can designate the student as a joiner or ask the system to ignore the new entry.  You also have the option to pair up names that the automatic matching process has not picked up.

Once the process has finished, click “Confirm All Changes”. You will be redirected back to your class overview with the new entry loaded. You can view all your classes from the drop-down box.

Alternatively, you can always email us your class rosters to support@mangahigh.com and we can get your students uploaded asap.
