No, connecting your CommonLit account with your Clever account should not delete any previous data if you choose to match your existing classes and students to your Clever rosters. This process links the existing student accounts to Clever, allowing for their previous assignments and data to remain unchanged.

Sometimes students accidentally create multiple accounts on CommonLit, and then complete assignments on both. With our Clever matching process, you can actually select multiple CommonLit accounts for one student, and we will merge those accounts for you. This will collect all of the student’s data and assignments under one account.
