Student Upload Tool

Student rosters can be uploaded into ESGI using an .xlsx or .csv file, using our provided template or your own!

  • This feature is available to teachers only, but not available to teachers that have their rosters automatically imported into ESGI.
  • Students that have previously been tested in ESGI will need to be added using Student Manager.
  • Specialists are able to add students using Student Manager or the + icon if the student has never been tested in ESGI. 
  • Files can be uploaded from the Home Screen.
