Texas resources and documents

Program Introduction

Administrators, welcome to mCLASS Texas Edition!

Here you’ll find information about enrollment and licensing, technical requirements, professional learning resources, and more.

Onboarding: What to expect

Welcome to mCLASS Texas Edition! To help you know what’s coming next, we created the following visual that outlines the steps of the onboarding process. You can use it as a reference.

Enrollment and licensing

Amplify provides services to fit the different types of enrollment needs for various times of year:

 Self-Service Enrollment (SSE) is a batch enrollment tool that you can use to import large amounts of student, staff, and class information into the Amplify system at the beginning of the school year or any time you need to update your enrollment data.

Auto Self-Service Enrollment (Auto SSE) is a service for automatically sending enrollment data from your computer to Amplify, which does not require intervention after you initiate the process, and which can be run at any time of year. You must have the ability to run scripts in order to use Auto SSE.

Amplify also offers the Manual Enrollment tools on the Amplify Administration page, which you can use at any time of year to add or update enrollment information by entering the information directly into Amplify, rather than uploading spreadsheets.

Preparing your materials

If you need the DIBELS 8th Edition and IDEL materials, you can download them for local printing directly from the University of Oregon website. Additionally, if you need the materials for the Inventory measures (PA-Blending and FSL), they can be downloaded from the mCLASS Home Training page (login required).

If your school or district purchased materials kits, the materials coordinator at your school or district will receive a shipping logistics survey after your order is placed, to ensure a smooth delivery of mCLASS Texas Edition kits. It is critical that this survey be completed prior to the shipment of materials. If you are the materials coordinator for your school or district and have not received a survey, reach out to your Amplify implementation manager.

What’s included in the kits

Below you will find a list of the print materials included in each mCLASS Texas Edition kit.
