CoursEval comes equipped with several import templates that can be used to populate and update data.

The templates are available here (see below) and on each import screen. The Data Dictionary is also available on each import screen.

When developing your import files take care to ensure the column headers match the templates. This will save you time when manually importing files since CoursEval will match the columns to the known column names. This will also set you up for future automation.

Core Imports

  • Faculty - adds/updates faculty records
  • Course - adds courses to the system each period/term
  • Enrollment-Student - ties the students to the courses for the period/term
