(E) Add Students = Assign Logins to seats
Note: You don’t need to do this if you use Clever to roster your students. If you have Clever you can roster your own class by connecting with Rocket Math in the Clever Library.
To add students to your roster, you just have to assign logins to available seats.
Here are 2 options for adding student logins to your available seats. If you don’t automatically get the pop-up, in your dashboard click on the brick red button that says + Add Students (assign logins). Up pops the D-I-Y Student Logins dialog box with an empty row for each unassigned seat, ready for you to create the logins for each student you want to add to your class.
Note: there is an option to import students from a CSV file that is explained in another article.
Option 1: D-I-Y Student Logins
Here’s the default popup after setting up seats or when you click on the +Add Students (assign logins) button. Using this pop-up, you can simply assign login information to seats by typing them in (up to 30 seats at a time).
Just create the usernames and passcodes yourself with the D-I-Y (Do-It-Yourself) option.
CREATE a simple username for each student. It only has to be unique to your school or family, so make it simple and easy to enter.**
Please note: We do not want to collect personally identifiable student information, so you see there’s no place for the student’s name. Be sure your usernames help you remember who goes with which username. You do need to know that, but we don’t! Thanks.
CREATE a short student passcode for each student.
Your Account number is already filled in. Your students will enter that as they login. Then select a Learning Track.
SELECT A LEARNING TRACK
Select one of the 16 Learning Tracks from the pull-down menu (see it in the picture). Most people start with Addition or Multiplication. If you need help choosing a Learning Track, you can go to this section in the directions about the Learning Tracks for help deciding where to start.
SELECT A TEACHER MGR
You’ll see your name already set up as the Teacher Mgr if you are a Teacher Mgr or if you are an owner with no other Teacher Mgrs–then you’re it. There’s nothing to select, so you can ignore this column.
If there are multiple Teach Managers in the account, you must select a Teacher Mgr for each student. This could become tedious, so we’d recommend one of the other options if you have big account. Perhaps the Auto-created Logins (below) or Importing student logins with CSV explained here.
If you have a school or a school manager you want to select the school for each student, so they are connected to your school and your school manager can see their data.
If you are doing a multiple school account, this is not the way to go. Get these student accounts set up by Importing student logins with CSV explained here.
+ Assign the Student Logins below to the seats
After you have entered as many as you want, please hit the green button + Assign the Student Logins below to the seats Then your students will be ready to play! They login with the credentials you have just created at https://play.rocketmath.com and begin to play.
Option 2: Auto-created Logins.
We now have an automatic way to make up the usernames and passcodes. Have the system “auto-create” student logins (usernames and passcodes) and just export the result. Watch this video to see how this works.
Export login list. To help you keep track of the logins you’ve created go back to your dashboard and click on the blue “Export Students” button. That will give you all the logins you have created for your account. That has the advantage of having an empty column entitled “Student Name” where you can type in their names to keep a copy for your own records. We don’t record that information on our website, but you’re welcome to save a copy for yourself.
**BE KIND. Your child has to enter the username, passcode and Account number every time they login to play. So be kind and make these short, easy to remember, and easy to type in. Initials or nicknames for username, a short word or 3 or 4 digits for a passcode would work great.
