Where are all my students?

< All Topics

Why can’t I see my exisiting students in Connecting Steps (CS) or Evisense?

The reason for this is classes must be updated for a new academic year in MyBSquared. The student information is still all stored within the system, and as soon as students are put in a class for the new academic year they appear again in CS and/or Evisense.

You can update classes in 2 ways: by importing students from your MIS system or setting a registration group for each student.

To import student data from your MIS system

  1. Navigate to Manage Students in MyBSquared.
  2. Click Import Students and import a .csv (Comma Separated Value) created from your MIS system. This must contain at least first name, last name, DOB, gender, UPN, reg group, date of admission.

    This automatically moves your existing students to their new classes and adds any new students to the system.

Note: When you import, ensure students who are already in MyBSquared have a UPN attached to them. This means the import can match on it. If the UPN isn’t used the system uses the first name, last name and DOB as a combination which can differ between our system and your MIS, resulting in duplicate students being added.

Setting a registration group

  1. Navigate to Manage Students in MyBSquared.
  2. Search for the required students.
  3. Click the edit icon next to the required student.

The Edit Student window opens.

  1. Click in the Next Year Group field and select the required class from the drop down list.
  2. Click Save.

Your student is added to the registration group and is now visible in CS and/or Evisense.

Note: You can add new classes Manage Groups.
