1. Ensure that you are the MARK Access Co-ordinator for your centre.
Only the Access Coordinator has the required permissions to set up the connection with Wonde. If you are not the Access Coordinator, you can find out who holds this role for your centre by logging in to MARK, and hovering over your account dropdown in the top right hand corner:
2) Review the data you currently hold within MARK.
a. Are there any duplicates of users? If so, these should be deleted (please contact our support team for help with this).
b. Are your class names up to date?
c. Are your pupils in the correct year group? If they are not, you may need to promote them.
By reviewing your current data first, this will help to pre-empt any issues that you may encounter when you sync your users.
3) Ensure that your school has a live Wonde account.
If your school does not use Wonde, the Wonde Support Team will be in touch to help you get connected. The request from the Hodder Education Group Admin Hub as described in this setup process triggers its own request to our integration team to get the connection approved, and if there isn't an existing link the Wonde team will get that in place as part of the process.
International schools, please be aware that Wonde requires a UK URN and Department for Education (DfE) number to set up a connection.
If you are already connected with Wonde and require support, you can contact the Wonde Support Team via email@example.com or 01638 779 144. There is also plenty of helpful guidance within Wonde’s Useful Documents.
It is important for schools to know what data is being shared via Wonde and so Wonde provide a portal to allow schools to take control of this. When setting up your connection with Wonde you will be asked to view the data (the permissions) being shared and approve the connection.
All third-party Apps that have direct connection with Wonde API must first register on Wonde's Developer’s Portal. To connect to Wonde schools, they have to define a Permission set (the list of data necessary for the two systems to function properly together). The data that the Hodder Education app requires from your Wonde account can be seen in the next section.
Hodder Education have defined a Permission set (the list of data necessary for MARK to function ie. Student data, groups and classes). The data that the Hodder Education app requires from your Wonde account can be seen below
*Contextual information is comprised of the following statuses on: Pupil Premium, Service children, Free school meals, More able, and Looked after.
The default is for all of the categories of optional data required to make contextual groups work in MARK to be sent through. However, if you do not want to have this data synced from Wonde then you can contact Wonde (on 01638 779 144, or at firstname.lastname@example.org) to suppress this.
If you're happy that you have everything you need to get started, proceed to: Setting up your Wonde connection.
