Creating your class

  3. Click on the “New Class” button.
  4. Enter your class name, year group, and choose the course.
  5. Click on the “Add” button.

You will be returned to the Classes page, and you now need to add your students.

Adding a few students

If you just need to add a few students follow these instructions but if you’ve got quite a few and don’t want to do too much typing then follow the instructions below for adding your class’ students.

  1. Go to the Classes page.
  2. Click on the “New Student” button.
  3. Fill out the form.
  4. Press the “Add” button.

Repeat steps 2 – 4 until you have added all the students.

Your pupils can now login at https://game.rodocodo.com and start using the system.

Adding your class’ students

If you’re adding your whole class (e.g. 30 pupils) then it is much quicker to use a CSV file.

Preparing the CSV file

Your CSV file needs to be in the following format:

username,password,forename,surname,gender

So for example if you have have two pupils (Scott Summers and Jean Grey) the data might look like this:

usernamepasswordforenamesurnamegender
jeangpasswd2JeanGreyF
scottspasswdScottSummersM

Exported as a CSV file it would look like this:

username,password,forename,surname,gender
jeang,passwd2,Jean,Grey,F
scotts,passwd1,Scott,Summers,M

Importing the CSV file

  1. Click on “Import Students”.
  2. Click on the button below Upload file and select your CSV file to upload.
  3. Click on the “Create student accounts” button. Note: Only click once!
  4. Wait.

If there are errors in the file, the page will display an error message stating which line(s) of the CSV has the problem. Please fix the errors and save your changes then go back to Step 2 to upload your updated file. If you’re unable to solve the issue then please get in touch with us at [email protected], and we’ll be happy to help.

If there are no errors the data will import and your class will be created.

By default, the system chooses the “Original (KS1/KS2)” course, but you should change this. The instructions for this can be found here.

  1. Click on the “Students” button to view the class username and passwords.
