Setting up an integration between EP and Schoolbox

Schoolbox can integrate with Education Perfect, and offers ways to show and assign EP content as well as store EP grades in Schoolbox directly.

This article outlines the steps to set this integration up, which may require an hour so of time from your school’s IT Team or LMS Manager.

How does it work?

This integration enables teachers to embed lessons from EP into the Schoolbox dashboard without needing to log into EP. Students can then work through their classwork from within Schoolbox, instead of needing to log in to EP.

To view results, analytics and recommendations from student work, teachers will still need to log in to EP. Teachers also need to log into EP to assign specific work, although once these are created they can be embedded into Schoolbox easily!

3. Match existing users to their Schoolbox accounts

If your students have already been using EP without a Schoolbox integration, their EP accounts will need to be linked to the unique identifier Schoolbox uses to confirm their identity.

This ensures any work that students do in EP is stored against their Schoolbox account. Often this is the user's school email address, but it can differ from school to school.

If we already have the unique identifier associated with teachers' and students' accounts, for example because it's their email addresses, we'll match up everyone we can on your behalf. We will then send you a list of anyone we couldn't match. Once you send us the details for those people, we'll update them as well.

If this step is not completed, your users will get an error if they attempt to access EP content embedded within Schoolbox.

Once all steps are completed, teachers are able to embed EP content into Schoolbox for students to complete!
