Manually assigning students to a Course

Note: BetterExaminations Online integrates with third-party user management systems like your Learning Management System (LMS), Student Information System (SIS) and Active Directory.
Using a third-party integration method is the best way to manage users.

When a Course has been created an Administrator can assign Students to it. Administrators can also add and remove Students from a Course while it's in progress.

1. Go to Courses and select the Course name you intend to add the Students to:

2. Select Students from the options on the left. A list of students already assigned to the Course will be listed on right. To assign students to or remove students from a Course enable Modify students by toggling the switch.


3. Select the checkbox next to the Student's name. To select all, click on the checkbox on the top left (the one beside "Given name") and select Save changes:

You also have the option to assign students via a CSV file to the course. To do this, you must create a .CSV file that contains a list of all the email addresses associated with the students you wish to assign to the course.  These students must already exist globally on BetterExaminations within your organisation.  Your CSV file should have one column and just one email address per row (see example below)

Once you have prepared your CSV file, simply click 'Assign via CSV' and upload your CSV file.

Once you have uploaded your CSV file, you should see the list of email addresses appear below in a table. To assign the selected students to the course, simply click 'Assign students' (see below)

That's it – the selected Students have now been assigned to the Course.
