(C) Add Teacher Managers

You are here:
< All Topics

The person who first sets up the account is the owner (probably you).

The owner is automatically the first teacher.  The owner will always be able to see ALL the students in the dashboard and can review everyone’s progress. Hint: If you want to see only the students connected to you as their teacher use the “Search” box and filter for your name–then only your students will be displayed.  It works the same on the dashboard and Review Progress page.

WARNING: Do you need to set up a school or multiple schools?

  • If you intend to have a School Manager to oversee the whole school, you will need to set up a School and then a School Manager.
  • If you intend to have multiple schools in your account, you will need to set up Schools and then School Managers.
  •   Go here for the directions on how to add schools and school managers to your account
  • Please, you must do this BEFORE adding Teacher Mgrs–so you have a school code to assign the Teachers to the school.

To add other teachers to your account: Go to Teacher Managers tab

As owner you can set up additional people as Teacher Mgrs to help manage the seats. In the Online Game admin, choose the tab for Teacher Mgr.  There are two options to add Teacher Mgrs to your account.  Option 1: fill out the pop-up list if you only need to add a handful.

Option 2: with a CSV import if you have more than a handful. Located on a different page of this Knowledge Base.

Option 1: Add Teacher Mgrs on the pop-up list.

On the Teacher Mgr page, choose blue “Add Teacher Mgr” button in the upper right hand side. You’ll get this popup.

Just fill in their first name, last name, email address, make up a password for them and in the last column choose the school to which they belong.  [Note: Now you see why you need to set up the school or schools in your account first!] This pop-up form allows up to ten at a time, but you can repeat for more teachers, or choose option 2.

When you hit the green “Create” button the system will send an email to the address you entered for them. They can go to the https://admin.rocketmath.com page to change it.  You should probably also send them a message so they know this is coming and don’t ignore the email from rocketmath.com.

Note: You must set up your Teacher Mgrs before you input the students, but you can add more Teacher Mgrs at any time this same way.

 

WARNING: Some of your teachers may already be in our systemIf a teacher is already signed up for the Rocket Math Online game (even the free trial) then their email is in our database, they cannot be added in again.  If you try to add them it just won’t work for you.

Solution #1: Delete their account.  If they don’t have any student records they need to keep, just get them to delete their account from the upper right corner of their Account/Payment/Renew page. Or you can ask us and we can delete their previous account. If they have student data in their account we’ll need their approval before deleting.

Solution #2: Ask us to “MERGE” their account with yours.  If the teacher you want to add does have student progress records they want to keep–you don’t want to delete them.  And you cannot add them!  Instead write and ask us to “MERGE” their account with yours.  If you have enough unassigned seats, we can do that and they will become one of your teacher managers and use up some of your seats.  If that’s what you and the teacher both want, write to us and ask us to do that for you.

We send your Teacher Mgrs an email immediately.

As you create Teacher managers, we send the email below telling them: 1) Where to login, 2) Their username and the password you made up for them, and 3) Where to get help and information.  When they first login, they are required to make up their own password. I’d recommend letting them know the email is coming as they might ignore emails coming from us.

Next, you or your Teacher Managers will go on to assign student login information to your “unassigned” seats so the students can login and play.
