Add students to class by pasting from Excel

In this guide we use the term Excel, but other spreadsheet applications such as Google Sheets works as well.

1. Copy from Excel

The Excel spreadsheet must be formatted with the student code in the first column, and the full name of the student in the second column (see figure 1).

Note: students are sorted in the Excel sheet and not in DigiExam. If you usually sort students by last name/surname then you should write the last name/surname first, for example:

Student Code:     Name:
st2005                Johansson Johan
st2003                Larsson Lars
st2004                Robinsson Robin

To copy the data, just select the student codes and names, right click and press copy.

2. Paste the students in DigiExam

To paste the students in DigiExam, just right click in the "Paste from Excel" box and press paste (see figure 2).

3. Review and add the students

Check the list to be sure student codes and names look correct, then press "Add Students" to add them to the class (see figure 3).
