CHANGING THE NAME AND GRADE OF YOUR CLASS

To change the name or grade of your class, navigate to the Details section of Class Settings.

NOTE: In this section, you can also see which school you're a member of, as well as who currently has access to your class as a "teacher" (which may include your TA/co-teacher and/or school administrators).

VIEW, PRINT AND CHANGE STUDENT PASSWORDS

To view student passwords, navigate to the Students section of Class Settings.

To print all student passwords, click the Print Passwords button above the list of students.

Alternatively, you can click the checkbox to the left of students' names, then click Print Passwords to only print selected passwords.

To change a student's password, hover over the student whose password you'd like to change, then click on the small blue gear icon that appears to the right of their password. Click Change Password, and a new password will be randomly generated for them.

REMOVE STUDENTS FROM YOUR CLASS

To remove a student or students from your class, first navigate to the Students section of Class Settings. Then click the checkbox to the left of the student(s) you'd like to remove from your class. Finally, click the Remove Students button near the top right of the page.

NOTE: Removing a student from your class will not delete their account. They will still exist as a student within your school, and can be added to any other class within that school. They will simply no longer be associated with your class.

EDIT STUDENTS' NAMES

To edit a student's name, first navigate to the Students section of Class Settings. When you hover over the student whose name you'd like to edit, a small blue gear icon will appear to the right of their password image. Click the gear, then click Edit Details to change the student's name.

NOTE: In the current version of the platform, you will not be able to change students' emails. This is because they are used as a unique identifier for the student within the platform, and so must remain constant. If you need to change a student's email, please contact us at help@9dots.org.

FIND THE STUDENT LOGIN LINK FOR YOUR SCHOOL

The student link is the URL specific to your school that students will navigate to in order to find their class and log into their account. To find the student link, navigate to the Student Link section of Class Settings.

From here, you can copy the link and paste it into a new tab or window to navigate to the student login page for your school.

NOTE: If you have a TA or co-teacher, they will bookmark the link on every student computer for you so that students have easy access to the login page. If you are an independent teacher, you will need to do this yourself. Alternatively, you can create a TinyURL for the student link that will be easy for your students to remember.

NOTE: Click the arrow at the top left of the screen to exit the Class Settings section.
