Add Students

If you need to add students, click the blue Add Students button along the top.

Note: If you don't see the Add Students button, that means we are uploading your students directly from your school district's Student Information System. If there's no Add Students button and your class list is out of date, please contact or your school district's tech department.

Set Reading Levels

Make sure that each student is set to your best estimate of his or her instructional reading level. Next to each student's name, you'll see a Level dropdown with a Guided Reading Level and a grade level in parentheses. This dropdown indicates the level of the student's next assessment. To change the level, click the dropdown and select a new level. As soon as you've set levels, you are done setting up your teacher account.
