How to compare students to merge

Who can do this with default user permissions?

District Level Administrators, School Level Administrators

This page opens after you select the student records that you would like to merge. The page shows you detailed information about both student records so that you can compare the records and decide how to merge them. If the two records shown are not the ones you intended to select, select < Back to choose other student records.

Merging records can be helpful if the same student has been entered or imported into your database with a slightly different name.

After comparing the student records, choose one of the options at the top of the page:

  • Merge with student A as the primary: Choose this option to merge the two records, keeping the personal and demographic information from the student A record. The program merges the characteristics, class enrollment, and any data specific to a particular program (such as Accelerated Reader quiz scores) from student B's record into student A's record. Note that unscored Accelerated Math assignments will not be merged.
  • Merge with student B as the primary: Choose this option to merge the two records, keeping the personal and demographic information from the student B record. The program merges characteristics, class enrollment, and any data specific to a particular program (such as Accelerated Reader quiz scores) from student A's record into student B's record. Note that unscored Accelerated Math assignments will not be merged.

After you choose an option, select Confirm and Merge > to continue. If you do not want to continue the process, select Cancel instead.
