How to import student data (.ast file)

Go to the e-asTTle login menu on the right-hand side of the page and select "Login as a teacher".

Follow these steps to import student data:

  1. Select "Import" from the menu on the left.
  2. Select "Browse" or "Choose file" (depending on which browser you are using).
  3. Navigate to the location where your student file is saved on your computer, then select the "filename" and select "Open".
  4. Select "Submit".
  5. If all students have been successfully imported, a "Complete – no action required" message will display.
  6. If you do not receive a completion message, this could be related to the following:
    • your data file is rejected due to a validation error - contact your SMS (Student Management System) vendor to resolve the issue
    • there are discrepancies between the students’ details in the .ast data file and in e- asTTle, so a manual validation screen will display. You can either:
      • Overwrite the e-asTTle student record with the record in the .ast data file, or
      • Keep the existing e-asTTle student record. (In this case, update your SMS).

Note - The import file is a "full import". This means you must include all the school's current students and classes which you intend to use in e-asTTle. Importing partial students and classes may result in groups disappearing and other unintended consequences.

More detailed information can be found at Help with e-asTTle - Importing students.
