Once you have created your file, you can modify it as you wish, as long as you stay within the guidelines above.
Tip: You can download a CSV file that includes the student usernames under Gradebook > All Grades > Export as CSV (or from Gradebook > Tools > Export). You can also download a CSV file that includes the student usernames under Roster > Export.
