If your district is just starting with Literably and you have current reading levels for your students (e.g. F&P, DRA, STEP, Rigby PM Benchmark), we can work with you to upload those levels to Literably, and Literably will start each student off at the appropriate level (under the "Next Assessment" column).
Note: If reading levels are not provided, then by default Literably will start each student at the beginning of his/her grade level.
Here are the instructions for uploading reading levels, depending on how your district handles rostering:
Manual Upload If your district is manually uploading teachers.csv and students.csv, then please complete the Initial Level column in the students.csv file with each student's current reading level. Literably can accept F&P, DRA, STEP and Rigby PM Benchmark levels and will auto-detect the leveling system used as long as the same system is used for all students.
OneRoster SFTP If your district is sending us OneRoster files via SFTP, then please include this column in the users.csv file: metadata.literably.
Clever If your district is using Clever to roster teachers and students, then please create a spreadsheet (.csv format) with two columns: sis_id and score. In the sis_id column, put each student's SIS ID. In the score column, put each student's current reading level. Literably can accept LEXILE, DRA, and F&P levels via this method; make sure to indicate to us which scheme the levels are stored in. To send us the CSV file, please submit it as an attachment to a support ticket: https://literably.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/requests/new.
