What is RIC One?

RIC One is a family of services that enable districts to utilize student data systems more efficiently and effectively, and to improve school operations and classroom instruction, while ensuring the privacy of sensitive student data.

RIC One can sync classes, teachers and student data to Hāpara daily or on demand. Hāpara can only read data from RIC One, Hāpara does not write any data to RIC One.

How does RIC One sync data with Hāpara?

Hāpara obtains necessary data like the StudentEmail address from the emailAddress field of the Student record, via the RIC One API.

Hāpara constructs a ClassEmail address by combining the following fields in the Roster record of RIC One:

  • courseTitle
  • schoolSectionId
  • refId (last four digits only - provides uniqueness)

The ClassEmail is also repeated as the ClassName

How to set up Hāpara to sync with RIC One

Note: If you are syncing multiple schools, we recommend enabling School Separation before setting up your RIC One integration.

School Separation allows for easier organization of classes and students, improved performance across all Hāpara applications, and more flexibility for assigning visibility and administrative privileges at the school level.

To setup School Separation:

  1. Login to the Hāpara Admin Console
  2. Click Configuration > School Configuration
  3. Ensure all schools are configured here as per our School Separation setup article.  The school codes you set should match the codes coming through from RIC One.
  4. Our support team can assist you with this setup.
