Simplify student login and manage class rosters through secure Clever integration

CommonLit has partnered with Clever to simplify online learning for students using CommonLit. Through this partnership, schools and districts using Clever can sync their class rosters to CommonLit and log in with Clever’s single sign-on feature for free.

Is your school or district syncing data with CommonLit through Clever? If so, check out our simple instructions below for taking advantage of this integration. If not, email partnerships@commonlit.org and let us know who we should contact to get your school or district set up.

Getting Started with CommonLit’s Clever Integration

Important reminder about CommonLit’s Clever integration: students and teachers do not immediately have accounts created for them in CommonLit when their school or district begins syncing with CommonLit through Clever.

Instead, once a school or district begins syncing data with CommonLit, it is then up to each teacher to decide when they want to onboard their teacher account and associated student accounts through Clever.

To do so, teachers simply have to click on the CommonLit icon in their Clever Portal.
