FAQ: How are schoolwide student accounts changing?

1

We strive to make Curriculum Pathways an effective resource that works within modern educational settings. In recent years that has meant a move toward individual student accounts with personalized content. Students can also access Curriculum Pathways through district-wide consent programs or single sign-on partners.

Moving forward, and to best support our users, we will phase out the legacy system of school-wide student accounts effective in Summer 2018.

We hope that our legacy users who love Curriculum Pathways will embrace this change and shift to individual student accounts, but we understand that a couple questions may arise.

What are the benefits of individual student accounts?Student Portfolio

Students with individual accounts can save and reload work for many of our new and popular resources, such as the Writing Navigator series and Reading Records. Student work is saved in their individual portfolio where they can view, reload, and share their work. The list of resources supporting the portfolio is steadily growing. Students with individual accounts can also benefit from easier navigation, using convenience features such as recently used resources and favorites.

How do we create individual accounts?

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, first go to Settings > Students. Then follow the directions to accept the Educator Terms of Use. The student quick link and sign-up code will then be displayed.
