Your district IT department can work with QuaverEd’s integration team to get this functionality up and running in your district. To begin an SSO integration, have your IT administrator contact QuaverEd at implementation@QuaverEd.com or (866) 917-3633.
QuaverEd understands that no two districts are the same, so we have created several ways to build class rosters in the QuaverEd platform. Below we explain different methods for rostering.
Method 1: Rostering Integration
A full rostering integration involves QuaverEd receiving roster data in bulk directly from your district’s SIS or other roster data provider, usually on a nightly basis. QuaverEd then processes that data and automatically creates and updates classes and students in Quaver.
QuaverEd supports rostering integrations via four methods:
- OneRoster CSVs delivered via sFTP (1.0 or 1.1)
- ClassLink OneRoster API
- Google Classroom API
- Infinite Campus API
Note that any rostering integration with QuaverEd requires also integrating with the Single Sign-On protocol used by your district.
Method 2: Student Self-Enrollment
This rostering method requires teachers to to create their QuaverEd classes manually and have students enroll in those classes by entering a Class Code. While this method requires effort from the students and teachers, it requires no work from the IT department and can be an effective method to get music classes up and running quickly in QuaverEd.
Note that if your district is using a SAML/ADFS, LTI, or Clever Single Sign-On method, student self-enrollment will provide all of the benefits of rostering – QuaverEd gradebook functionality, assignment functionality, and student Interactives access.
Method 3: QuaverEd Student Data Import
This rostering method requires that teachers and IT teams work together to prepare a student import file. The IT department can export student information into a spreadsheet. Teachers can then create their QuaverEd classes and enter the corresponding Class Codes in that spreadsheet, in order to enroll all of their students.
Access to QuaverEd resources is granted via login to a secure website experience by a teacher or student account.
To ensure teachers and students are able to access their curriculum resources and assignments, please ask your IT department to whitelist all subdomains of the following domains:
Whitelisting these domains will prevent students and teachers from experiencing any barriers to their QuaverEd resources, including the possibility of the website being restricted or blocked by a school or district server.
If an IT professional needs additional information, please contact us, and we will be happy to offer additional answers or support!
All QuaverEd curricula operate on most desktop, tablet, or mobile devices. There are certain minimums that must be met and versions of the browsers that are supported.
The teacher can access the material through their own device and share resources to students. We use QR codes and resource links that students can scan or click with their own device to get access to screens – without having to log in.
Apple, for example, has stopped supporting older versions of their iPads that may not function well with our curricula. But our online platform is fully compatible with Chromebooks, Microsoft, Android, and Apple computers, tablets, and mobile devices currently supported by their manufacturers. The table below shows the recommended specifications for different devices.

Classroom Technology Requirements
QuaverEd works with all interactive boards, including SmartBoards, Promethean Boards, Mimio, and others. If you are having a problem operating Quaver using one of these devices, call our Customer Service hotline at (866) 917-3633. Since most of our curricula are for elementary students, we recommend that the interactive board be mounted lower on the wall so that the students can reach the drag and drop activities.
The teacher can also use a flat panel TV screen to display QuaverEd screens. This screen will not be interactive but can be effective regardless. This is especially true if the students can share a device.
The teacher can also use a standard projector against a pull-down screen or a plain wall. Be sure to place the projector far enough from the wall so that the visible area is as large as possible for the students.
We also strongly recommend a good set of speakers. Much of our curricula involves music, and computer speakers typically don’t provide the best listening experience for students. The investment will be well worth it!
Data Sharing Agreements
QuaverEd is willing to sign Data Sharing Agreements that protect student and teacher data. We will comply with FERPA, COPPA, and any state laws regarding data sharing.
QuaverEd will not sell or otherwise use the data for marketing purposes. We further agree to report any breaches of the data to the district upon discovery and present our plan for remediation.
If you still experience issues after performing the steps and checks above, please email us at TechSupport@QuaverEd.com or call (866)917-3633 on weekdays from 7am-6pm for immediate phone assistance.
