What is OneRoster®?

OneRoster is an open standard developed by IMS Global Learning Consortium® for sharing class rosters and related data between a student information system and other applications used across the edtech industry. Clever is certified by the IMS Global Learning Consortium for the latest 1.1 version of the OneRoster global standard, as well the previous 1.0 version. Districts and applications use the IMS OneRoster standard with Clever’s Secure Sync to easily roster classroom accounts. Learn more about Clever Secure Sync and simple student data management.

Implement IMS OneRoster standard

Step one

Send your OneRoster files to Clever (version 1.0 or 1.1). Whether you’re already using the popular global standard or if you’re thinking about adopting it, Clever makes it easy.

Step two

Districts use Clever's simple data rules to select which users, classes or grades need access to each resource. Then accounts are automatically created in the apps.

Step three

Clever groups students into correct classes, teachers see the right students for each app, and everyone uses a single login to access software.


Schools implement IMS OneRoster standard

to automatically roster their software via Clever's Secure Sync.
