The SE v2 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.
Note: You do not need to uninstall Read Naturally SE v1.6.
Before you can use the database utilities to import v1.6 data, you must have completed the following tasks:
Before importing the SE v1.6 data into SE v2, manually make a backup copy of the Read Naturally SE v1.6 Data folder to another location. The two locations of the original Data folder varies by operating system and installation type as follows:
|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|
After you have installed the server component of Read Naturally SE v2 there should be an application named rnse_DBUtilities in the location specified below. If you do not see this file, download and install the v2.0.3 update from SE v2.0.3 Update page. The exact locations for the rnse_DBUtilities on Mac OS X and Windows operating systems are shown below:
|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|
Note: In order to import SE v1.6 data into SE v2, the SE v2 database must not contain any teachers, classes, or students. The import process does not affect the information on the School tab in SE v2 Teacher Management (school name, district name/number, and administrator password). If the SE v2 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 v2.0 after you have imported the Read Naturally SE v1.6 data. To print out a Levels Report with the students’ level and goal, please log into the Read Naturally SE v1.6 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 v2 after importing SE v1.6 data.
