At the beginning of each school year, returning account holders need to advance students from last year’s grade to their new grade in school. Because students are still listed as their previous grade in school, the tests they took last year, in that grade, have already been taken. The program will not let a student take a test twice so in essence, it will not assign benchmark tests nor let you assign progress monitoring measures. One you advance your students to their new grade in school, the tests will become available.
To edit student information, login to your account and click on the “Student” tab. In the Students column, to the right of the student’s name, is a blue edit button. Click on this button and a pop-up window will display the student’s information. Here you can edit the student grade and advance it to the next grade. After you make changes, be sure to click on the “Update” button in order for the changes to take effect.
You may also need to re-assign students to groups if they have changed from last year. Groups can also be edited under the Student’s tab. To determine which students are assigned in a group, click on the group name. The students that are active in that group will appear in the right-hand column under students. Students who belong to a group will have a check in the box next to their name.
Also at the beginning of a new school year, it may be helpful to first click on each group name, then uncheck each box next to a student’s name. If you deselect each student in a group, this will clear the student-group connection from the previous year. Now you are ready to re-assign students to this year’s groups.
To assign students to groups, select the group you would like in the “Groups” box. Then in the “Students” box click on the small box to the left of the student’s name (this adds a √ check mark and assigns students to that group). Once students are assigned to a group, when you click on the group name, only the students in that group will be highlighted.
