Jupiter can exchange data with your school's 3rd-party Student Information System or other software to:
• Load student names, contact info, demographic data, etc.
• Load student rosters into teachers' gradebooks
• Export final grades into your SIS
• Export attendance data
The standard method is to manually import and export data files between the two systems. Jupiter uses a general tabular data format, not specific to any particular SIS or software. See Import and Export for technical details.
For an additional fee, we can do Custom Integration. Usually this involves custom data formats to your specifications. We may also automate our server to upload and/or download data files to your server through FTP at scheduled times. Your IT staff would need to set up the FTP accessible directory on your server, and automate your own SIS or other software to import/export the data files. Because of the costs and technical coordination required, custom integration is usually cost effective only for larger schools or districts. Please contact us to discuss your requirements and request a quote.
To match your data with other software, set these data codes:
Student ID or Alternate ID — See Add/Edit Students
Course Code & Section Code — See Schedule
School Code — See Setup Schools
Staff Code — See Setup Staff
Term Code — to identify quarters, semesters, exams, etc. See Schedule Terms
Embed Parent/Student Portal
Jupiter has an API to embed student grades, homework, etc. inside your own website, so when parents or students log into your website, they do not need to login separately into Jupiter.
