How do I view or manage classes/groupings?

In your account, you will have one or more classes/groupings that contain all of your students. These classes/groupings are where you will assign practice tests and assessment sessions, view student reports and manage students. To view or manage your classes/groupings, follow these steps:

1. Log in to your teacher account.

2. Once you are logged in, you will be able to see and manage your classes/groupings by selecting the Classes/Groupings tab on the left-hand sidebar.

3. In this view, you will see your classes/groupings. To open a class/grouping, click Select Class or Select Grouping.

4. Once you have opened your class/grouping, you will be able to review key information about the class/grouping and assign assessments. The image below shows a sample class/grouping. The descriptions beneath the image correspond to the numbers in the image.

  1. Access Code (for Class/Grouping): Your class/grouping will have an access code. This access code gives students access to the class/grouping.
  2. Class/Grouping: Your class/grouping is school-board assigned, meaning the information about it has been uploaded by your school board. Although you can create multiple groups of students, your class/grouping is where you will run the live assessment with your students.
  3. New Assessments: Click Start or Schedule Assessment Session to launch new assessment sessions and sample tests.
  4. Manage Students: Students currently in the class/grouping are listed here.

How do I view my students?

1. Log in to your teacher account.

2. Once you are logged in, you will be able to see and manage your classes/groupings by selecting the Classes/Groupings tab on the left-hand sidebar.

3. In this view, you will see your classes/groupings. To open a class/grouping, click Select Class or Select Grouping.

How do I add students to my class/grouping?

Your school board will have pre-loaded a class/grouping into your account. This class/grouping will already have all your students in it. The board-assigned class/grouping is also where the assessment session must be administered.

However, you may need to add students to your class/grouping after the initial upload. This can be done directly from your class/grouping. 

Follow the instructions below to add a student to your class/grouping.

1. Log in to your teacher account.

2. Once you are logged in, you will be able to see and manage your classes/groupings by selecting the Classes/Groupings tab on the left-hand sidebar.

3. In this view, you will see your classes/groupings. To open a grouping, click Select Class or Select Grouping.

4. Select Manage Students.

5. In this view, you can click New Student Account and enter the student’s personal information and OEN. This will add the student to your class/grouping.
