If you are assigned to instruct a class, there are plenty of cool things you can do right from your roster. From assigning curriculum to managing individual students' settings, you can do it all in a few clicks.
To do this, first, go to your Classes tab on the left-hand side of your Dashboard.
Then, select the class you'd like to adjust the settings for.
Then, you'll want to go to your Students tab.
Now, you should see the roster of all your students.
Single Student Actions
By selecting a single checkbox next to a single name, you also have the option to individually edit that student and their enrollments. This can be especially helpful for a name change, logging in as that student, or enrolling in different classrooms.
Enrollments: Here, you can select which classrooms you would like the student to be enrolled in.
Reset Password: Here, you can reset the selected student's password.
Disenroll Student(s): This is what you'll choose to remove the student from your classroom. (Note: This will not delete the student from Yeti Academy, just disenroll them from your classroom!)
Delete Student(s): Here, you will delete the student who has been selected. (Note: Once you delete your users, this can't be undone!)
Login As: Here, you can log in as your student and work as them in their account.
Edit Student: Here, you can edit the selected student's username, password, e-mail address, etc.
Classrooms: Here, you'll be able to view all the classrooms the selected student is enrolled in.
Bulk Student Actions
By selecting the checkboxes next to the names of the multiple students you'd like to edit, you can reset passwords, delete the students or manage enrollments in classrooms.
Reset Password: Here, you can reset the selected students' passwords.
Move Student(s): Here, you can move students to different or additional classrooms.
Print Login Cards: If you'd like your students to have a card that gives their username, password and where they are to login, you are able to print login cards with that information here.
Disenroll Student(s): This is what you'll choose to remove the students from your classroom. (Note: This will not delete the student from Yeti Academy, just disenroll them from your classroom!)
Delete Student(s): Here, you will delete the students who have been selected. (Note: Once you delete your users, this can't be undone!)
If allowed by your administrator, you can add students directly into your classroom. First, select the blue student icon with the + sign
Now, you will see a menu containing the different ways to add your student/students.
Adding A Single Student
When you select Add A Single Student, you will fill out a webform and then select Create to create the account.
Adding A Block of Students
When you select Add a Block of Students, you will fill out a webform where you are required to give give just one username and password on a form that looks like this. This method is convenient for creating multiple accounts at once without needing to be too specific on student details.
After this form is completed and saved, based on the username you've used and number of students you stated, the program will append a unique numeral at the end of each username (because each student needs a unique username!) The password doesn't change because that doesn't have to be unique. Here's an example:
We suggest that you permit students to update their First Name and Last Name and/or Password upon their first log-in, so it's totally unique to that student. A suggestion is to give students the unique username generated by the program and the password. (i.e., we give Johnny the account associated with teststudent1 and password Qwerty, as per the screenshot above.) Then, they'll put that information in the appropriate areas when the log in at your school's secure Yeti Academy page, the same web address that you use to enter the program.
Once putting in their generic username and password, another form will pop up where they put in their first and last names and a new password then save that. (Teachers and admins may view whatever changes students have done when they click on a classroom, then its students. They can edit these should they see fit.)
Adding Students with Class Code
If your administrator has allowed Student Self-Registration on your webpage, you can enable your class code by selecting Add Students with Class Code. This is going to let your students sign themselves into your class, so that they will be creating their own account.
You will see a button that says Enable under the automatically generated code. You'll need to select that in order to activate the class code. You can also change this code here.
When your students go to your school's Yeti Academy page, they will see an option for Student Self-Registration.
When you select Import Your Students, you will be doing this via a CSV file upload. CSV templates and instructions on the exact data required can be found by within the program by selecting Download Example .CSV file.
When you'd like to upload your own CSV, select Upload.CSV .
(Note: the program accepts alphanumeric numbers, and the special characters (underscore), -(dash), and @(at).)_
From your student roster, you can assign curriculum to individual or multiple students. To do this, select the checkboxes next to the names of your students you'd like to have a certain curriculum. Then, select Assign Curriculum.
From here, search for the curriculum you'd like to assign or remove from those students. In this example, we're going to assign the students Super Citizenship. Now, select Assign to finalize this.
Now, you'll see the selected students have the Super Citizenship curriculum assigned to them!
Viewing Student Progress
The ability to view your student’s progress is a powerful and easy option. It allows you to edit student lessons, manage badges, delete specific progress and generate an overview for that specific student. This is great tool for parent-teacher conferences, for send-home reports and to hone in on any specific student’s curriculum in general.
From your classroom, click the hyperlink of the name of the student whose progress you’d like to view.
The top of the page will display the students name, the last date/time they logged in and 5 tabs for you to choose from: Summary, Curriculum, Badges, Accessibility Options and Logins.
Here, you can see the student’s progress compared in average minutes and lessons the student has spent working in the program per month.
Here, you can view all of the lessons as well as the scores and when they were completed. This is also where you will go should you chose to delete a lesson. First, you'll select a curriculum category (e.g., code, digital literacy, etc.). Then, select the curriculum from the drop-down menu (e.g, Yeti Code Level 2, etc.). From here, you can select a date range and view the students' lessons and the grades they have received. By selecting Archived Data, you will be able to view data from years past.
Here, you can award and remove the student's badges and view the ones they've already earned.
Under the Typing Accommodations tab, you can view either Benchmarks or Settings. The benchmarks will allow you to decide what earns a student 1, 2 or 3 stars in any keyboarding curriculum as well as the speed requirements to earn a Bolt Badge:
Under the Settings option, you can choose various settings to optimize your students' keyboarding experience:
Accessibility Options Tab:
From here, you will be able to adjust the physical settings for that individual student. Under the Accessibility Options tab, you can adjust the curriculums according to the physical needs of the selected student.
Font Family: From this menu, select the font that will be most legible to your students. (Note: There is a font made specifically for dyslexic students that helps them with often problematic letters.)
Font Size: From this menu, adjust the size of the font that will be most visible to your students.
Hands: From this menu, you can select both hands, left hand only or right hand only to accommodate single-handed typists.
High Contrast: If selected, the students will see a high color contrast in their lessons to improve readability.
Closed Captioning: If selected, all videos will have captions for your student to read.
Text-To-Speech: If selected, the students will hear a voice read all text on the screen.
Here is where you can view all dates, times and IP addresses of any student's logins.
Here are some videos if you need help with any of the above.
