1. Ensure that you are the MARK Access Co-ordinator for your centre.
Only the Access Co-ordinator has the required permissions to set up the connection with Assembly. If you are not the Access Co-ordinator, you can find out who holds this role for your centre by logging in to MARK, and hovering over your account dropdown at the top right:
If you are not the Access Co-ordinator for your school, and you need this changed, please fill out our GDPR consent form to have our digital support team amend this for you.
2. Ensure that your school has an Assembly account.
If you do not already have an Assembly account you will need to create one, to install the Assembly connector to your MIS. Enter the following invite code: "letsassemble2021" when you sign up at https://dashboard.assembly.education/sign_up.
If you need any help in setting up your account or installing the connector, you can request assistance from the Assembly team here.
3. Review the data you currently hold within MARK.
Are there any duplicates of users? If so, these should be deleted (if you need help with this, please raise a ticket with our support team):
a) Are your class names up to date?
b) Are your pupils in the correct year group? If they are not, you may need to promote them.
c) By reviewing your current data first, this will help to pre-empt any issues that you may encounter when you sync your users.
We are aware that it is important for schools to know what data is being sent and stored. When setting up your connection with Assembly you will be asked to authorise access to your MIS. The data that is stored by Assembly and by MARK to enable this connection are listed below:
Pupil premium information is required to automatically create contextual groups in MARK.
