Getting Started with Kuder Galaxy®

Welcome to Kuder Galaxy, an online career awareness system for elementary students, their parents, and schools!

Galaxy makes learning about the world of work fun by igniting the playful spirit of young explorers through a series of engaging games, videos, and activities. Rooted in grade level-specific career readiness goals, students experience missions as they step foot on planets, each representing a different work environment, theme, and objectives.

Add students incrementally.

Follow these steps to add additional students to your existing Galaxy student database. Remember that this should be used when you already have students in your database and want to add more.

  1. Select "Students" from the navigation pane.

  2. Select "Download Student Template".

  3. Populate the template with your students’ information. Please note, student passwords must be eight characters in length. Save a copy of your student upload file in a safe place. Name it "incremental" to differentiate it from your complete list.

  4. Select the upload mode as "Incremental" because you are electing to upload information only on the students listed on your template.

  5. Select "Upload Student File" to finish the process of uploading your incremental student template file. Student information that was contained in your student template file will be added to the existing list of students, and appear on your screen.

Quick Tips

  • Be sure to download a new student template each time you upload students to your database rather than trying to reuse an old template. Copy and paste from a master excel sheet into the new template.
  • Add the student information from your Incremental upload to the saved copy of your Complete student upload file. This way you’ll have an accurate list of student information that is also contained in your Kuder Galaxy® database containing in one place for your future reference.
  • When completing the student template, do not leave any required fields blank. Student information that contains blank fields will not be uploaded. You will receive an email message notifying you that the student(s) were missing information.
  • You cannot upload a student file that was created from a previous session. You must start and complete steps 1-4 in one session, or the upload will fail. If this happens, you simply need to download the student template again, save a copy, and transfer your data to this new template.
  • Want to view the student side? You can view the student experience — any grade, planet, or checkpoint (game, video, or activity) — from your admin account.  To do this go to "Student Views", and select the grade, planet, and Checkpoint you would like to view. Then, click "View As Student".

Step 3: Add Students to Your Classroom 

Now that you have your classroom(s) created and students uploaded, you may begin moving individual students into the appropriate classroom. This will need to completed from a school admin account or by a district admin viewing as an appropriate school admin.

  1. Select "Classrooms" from the navigation pane.

  2. Find the classroom and click the Edit icon.

  3. You’ll be directed to a page divided into three sections: Name of Classroom, Classroom Students, and Students. This page allows you to change your classroom name, assign additional teachers to the classroom, and add students to your classroom.

  4. If you've already uploaded students to your school, you will see them in the Students section. When you see the name of a student that should be in your classroom, click on the (+) icon to the right of that student’s name. You’ll immediately see that student’s name move up to the section entitled "Classroom Students".

  5. If you have not uploaded students to your school you can manually add them to your class one-by-one in this section or follow the instructions on uploading students.
