Rostering Methods

We understand that no two districts are the same, and we have created several ways to build class rosters in the Quaver system. Read on to see which one is right for you and your users.

Method 1: Rostering Integration

A full rostering integration involves Quaver receiving roster data in bulk directly from your district’s SIS (Student Information System) or other roster data provider. Quaver then processes that data and automatically creates and updates classes and students in Quaver. The end result is that teachers’ rosters in Quaver automatically mirror the rosters in their district SIS or LMS (Learning Management System).

Quaver currently supports rostering integrations via three methods:

Note that any rostering integration with Quaver requires that we also integrate with a Single Sign On (SSO) system used by your district.

Method 2: Student Self-Enrollment

This rostering method requires teachers to manually create their Quaver classes and have students enroll in those classes by entering a Class Code. While this method requires effort from the students and teachers, it requires no work from the IT department and can be an effective method to get music classes up and running in Quaver quickly. Because it is not updated on any kind of continuous basis, this method is not a full rostering integration. It requires that teachers manually maintain their rosters by creating classes, deactivating old students, and enrolling new students.

Note:  If your district is using a SAML/ADFS, LTI, or Clever Single Sign On method, student self-enrollment will provide all of the benefits of rostering – GradeBook functionality, Assignment functionality, and Student Interactives access. If your district is not using one of the above SSO protocols, self-enrollment may not allow for effective GradeBook functionality, as students may not appear by name in the teachers’ GradeBook.

Method 3: Quaver Student Data Import

This rostering method requires that teachers and IT teams work together to prepare a student import file. The IT department can export music student information into a spreadsheet. Teachers can then create their Quaver classes and enter the corresponding Class Codes in that spreadsheet in order to enroll all of their students. Because it is not updated on any kind of continuous basis, this method is not a full rostering integration. It requires that teachers manually maintain their rosters by creating classes, deactivating old students, and enrolling new students.
