The SE 2 database utilities will import your SE v1.6 data into SE v2.0, as long as the SE v2.0 database does not include any teachers, classes, or students. To make sure the import process is successful, you should follow these detailed instructions:
Before You Begin...
Before you can use the database utilities to import 1.6 data, you must have completed the following tasks:
Note: You do not need to uninstall Read Naturally SE 1.6
|Installation Type||Location of the Data Folder|
|Windows Stand-Alone||\Program Files\Read Naturally|
|Mac OS 9 Stand-Alone||Hard Drive/Applications (Mac OS 9)/Read Naturally|
|Windows Network||Server\Shared Folder Name\RN Server|
|Mac OS X Network||Server/Applications/Shared Folder Name/RN Server|
|Operating System||Location of the rnse_DBUtilities Application|
|Mac OS X Network||Hard Drive/Library/RNSEServer|
|Windows Network||\Program Files\RNSEServer\RNSEServer|
|Mac OS 9 Stand Alone||Hard Drive/Applications (Mac OS 9)/Read Naturally SE 2|
|Mac OS X Stand Alone||Hard Drive/Applications/Read Naturally SE 2|
|Windows Stand Alone||\Program Files\Read Naturally SE 2|
Double-click rnse_DBUtilities to launch the application, enter the Read Naturally Administrator password, and click OK. If you are using Mac OS X, you will then be prompted for an administrator password. Enter your Mac OS X administrator password, not your Read Naturally administrator password. If prompted to fix the database, click Yes and then click OK when the fix is complete.
Note: In order to import SE 1.6 data into SE 2, the SE 2 database must not contain any teachers, classes, or students. The import process does not affect the information on the School tab in SE 2 Teacher Management (school name, district name/number, and administrator password). If the SE 2 database does contain teachers, classes, or students, you can remove them by restoring an empty database from the Backup/Restore tab of the SE Database Utilities. For more information, please refer to the SE Database Utilities instructions for "Restoring an Empty Database."
|For this type of installation...||The Data folder is generally in this location:|
|Windows Stand-Alone||\Program Files\Read Naturally\Data\|
|Mac OS 9 Stand-Alone||/Applications (Mac OS 9)/Read Naturally/Data/|
|Network (all platforms)||\RN Server\Data\ on the network server|
Note: Read Naturally SE automatically creates a backup file of the current data before importing the new data. That way you can restore the original data if there is a problem during the import.
The students’ Level and Goal fields in Story Options will be blank in Read Naturally 2.0 after you have imported the Read Naturally SE 1.6 data. To print out a Levels Report with the students’ level and goal, please log into the Read Naturally SE 1.6 Teacher Management program. Select Teachers, click the Scores and Reports button, and then choose the Level Report. You will need to perform these steps for each individual teacher. The Levels Report lists the students’ current levels and goals which you will need to enter into Read Naturally SE 2 after importing SE 1.6 data.
