Help Center : Teacher Edition

Getting Started With Your New Account.

Once you create an easyCBM account, the first place to start would be the Resource tab in your account. Once you login, you will notice a tab on the right-hand side of your dashboard that says Resources. If you click on this tab you will see a drop-down menu with options to learn how to administer easyCBM measures to your students, how to use the easyCBM system, and access downloadable user manuals. There are also tutorials and videos to assist you with using the system. Another item to utilize would be ? Help link in the upper right-hand corner of your dashboard. This is a searchable help desk that can provide you with information and answers to questions you may have.

Now that you’ve become familiar with the easyCBM program, it’s time to add your students. Starting from the Dashboard tab, click on the “Students” tab. Add new Groups or Students by clicking the green “+” button. You will be directed to a screen with two columns. One on the left marked Groups and one on the right marked Students.Starting with the Student column, click on the + button. A pop-up “Create Student” window will appear. Fill in student information, then click the Create button in the lower right-hand side corner of the box. Repeat to add each student. In the “Groups” column, click on the green “+” button. A blank box will appear at the bottom. Give the group a name then click on the green checkmark box to the right. All your students are automatically listed in the All Students group. To activate and assign a student to an additional group, first click on a Group name, then go to the Student column and check the corresponding box to the left of their name. If you do not assign a student to a group, the student’s name will not display when measures are assigned to that group, and the student will not be able to login and take an assessment.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 to add a √ check mark and assign students to that group. Once students are assigned to groups, you will see when you click on the group only the students in that group will be highlighted.To assign an online progress monitoring measure, go to the “Measures” tab and click on the grade of the test you want to administer (the numbered box located just to the right of the header “Grade”).

Now scroll down the page until you locate the name of the assessment you wish to administer. On the right-hand side you will see a “Take Online” checkbox (for those assessments that can be administered online).

Click the box, and a list of your student groups will appear. Once you’ve selected the groups you want tested, have students login to: your username, and then take the assigned test (students will have to login using the teacher’s username). Once the students are logged in, their group and individual names should appear for selection along with their test options.

If you are entering student scores instead of having them take an online test, click on the “Enter Scores” column, and a pop-up window will appear. Select the group name, then fill in the student responses or scores. Make sure to select the Save button when you are finished entering the scores.
