Giving Students a Demonstration of Literably Follow
Overview: Some teachers like to introduce Literably by giving their students a live demonstration of the program.
This can be especially useful at the beginning of the school year or when first launching Literably. Logging in as a demo student is also an excellent way to try out a Literably assessment for yourself so that you can support students if needed.
1. Log in to your teacher account via Clever/ClassLink or at literably.com/login with your email and password.
2. Some districts/schools have access to Literably's new foundational skills assessments. If this is the case, and you would like to demo the main Literably assessment, be sure to select "Oral Reading" (which should be the default) for the Demo Student in the drop-down menu under the "Next Assessment" column of your teacher dashboard:
This will assign a text (level A-Z) to the demo student:
3. Then, click the blue Log In As Demo Student button in the top left corner of your dashboard:
4. Follow the directions at the top of the screen to log in as a demo student:
Enter your email address or username in the teacher email box.
You can then select Demo Student from the drop down menu and click Log In.
5. Once you log in, you can walk students through each section of the assessment from the demo account, without needing to worry about interfering with any real students' assessment histories:
6. If you attempt to read the assessment as a demo student, Literably will attempt to grade the recording and display the demo assessment results on your dashboard.
- If your district/school has disabled the student drop-down menu method of logging in for students, the demo student feature will not work.
- For districts using Clever/ClassLink, the demo student results on the dashboard will be removed each day due to the Clever/ClassLink sync, which keeps rosters up to date.
- To demo the foundational skills assessment to students, please refer to these directions.
