Importing and Exporting Data to Other Applications
 
Class Action can import a student list or complete student information.
 
To import a list of names, save your list in .csv (comma separated value) form using a spreadsheet such as Excel. From the File menu, select Import/Student Names and import your .csv file.
 
To import student information, a .csv file must be created with the following headers:
 
student_name, student_id, year_in_school, phone_number, parent_name, address_street, address_city,
address_state, address_zip, email_address1, email_address2
 
If your students' first and last name are in different fields, you can use first_name and last_name instead of student_name.
 
Order is not important, and it isn't necessary to have each field.
 
From the File menu, select Import/Student Information. 
 
Class Action can import scores from spreadsheets. Save your list in .csv (comma separated value) form using a spreadsheet such as Excel. From the File menu select Import > Scores from Spreadsheet (.csv) and either Add (if you want the assignments added to your existing assignments) or Overwrite (overwrites current assignments). You spreadsheet should be formatted as follows (the first column contains student ID's):

Class Action Can import assignments from Blackboard, a popular online teaching tool. In the File menu, select Import/Blackboard to open a Blackboard file saved in .csv form. Assignments will be matched with existing students and new students will be added. When Blackboard assignments are imported, all previously entered scores and assignment data in the selected assignment category will be overwritten.
 
Student lists, summary, and category information can also be exported in .csv format. Select "Export" from the File menu.
 
HTML documents can also be created by Class Action. See How to Create a Web Page.
