Setting up an integration between EP and Schoolbox
Adding support for Schoolbox is a straightforward process, which normally requires a couple of hours of work by your school's IT team/LMS manager. Education Perfect's integration may differ from other integrations your school has, because we need a way to match a Schoolbox user to their EP account. This enables us to include the work they do in Schoolbox in their learning record when teachers are writing reports and running parent/teacher interviews.

Match existing users to their Schoolbox accounts
If your students have already been using Education Perfect without a Schoolbox integration, their EP accounts will need to be linked to the unique identifier Schoolbox uses to confirm their identity. This enables any work that students do on Education Perfect in Schoolbox to be stored against their 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.
Please note that if we have not associated identifier with your users yet, your users will get an error if they attempt to access Education Perfect content embedded within Schoolbox.
