FAQ: What do teachers need to know about student accounts?

4

How are student accounts created?
kids
Students can create individual accounts to access Curriculum Pathways. Teachers—with parental permission—can provide students with a quick link or sign-up code to help create an account. When students use this link, their accounts are automatically affiliated with the school. With the exception of Reading Records, student accounts are not affiliated with individual teachers.

To get the quick code for a school, go to Settings > Students and follow the directions to accept the Educator Terms of Use. The student quick link and sign up code will then be displayed.

Why should students create individual accounts?

Students (and teachers) with individual accounts can save and reload work for each of the tools in the Writing Navigator series. Similar functionality is available when using resources such as Flash Cards and Reading Recs. Moving forward, we will add this save/reload feature to new resources.

Can students still use the school-wide username assigned to their schools?
Longtime customers who already have school-wide usernames assigned to their schools will continue to have this login option. Note, however, that work cannot be saved within Curriculum Pathways if a student logs in with the school-wide username. Work must be saved to a local folder on the student's computer.

Can I view a list of usernames and passwords for all of my students?
Currently, we do not offer that functionality. If students forget their login credentials, they can retrieve their username and generate a new password. (See this FAQ: How can I recover my username or reset my password?)

Is there a way for a teacher to create a class, enter student names, and create individual accounts for students?
With the exception of Reading Records, student accounts are not affiliated with individual teachers.

      Many school systems assign students email addresses for Learning Management System use, without actually providing email accounts to students at that level.
