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.
If you need help, as owner you can set up additional people as Teacher Mgrs to help manage the seats.
Note: You need to set up your Teacher Mgrs before you input the students, but you can add more Teacher Mgrs at any time with these same directions.
Go to the Teacher Manager page by clicking on the Teacher Managers link in the left hand navigation.
There are two ways to add Teacher Mgrs to your account, either individually if you only need to add a handful, or with a CSV import if you have more than a handful.
WARNING: Some of your teachers may already be in our system. If 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.
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.
One way: Add Teacher Mgrs Individually.
On the Teacher Mgr page, click the blue Add Teacher Mgr button in the upper right.
You’ll see this dialog box (to the right) in which you enter their first name, last name and email. Give them a password. 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 where to go.
WARNING: If the teacher is already signed up for their own account you won’t be able to add them. Their account will have to be deleted or merged.
Second way: Import Teacher Mgrs with a CSV file.
WARNING: If any of your teachers have already signed up for their own account they will have to be deleted before your csv will work. Or if they have students and want to be “MERGED” take them off your csv import list and we will merge them after you are done importing the other teachers.
Click on the blue button that says “+Import teachers from CSV.” Open the template that is provided in blue print “Excel template to fill in and then use the SAVE AS command to save the file in the format of Comma-separated value (CSV)”
In the file: you just enter each teacher manager’s first and last name, their email address and a password. (Keep track of the password because you have to tell them what it is!) After you fill out this information save the file, but use SAVE AS and choose CSV (Comma delimited) as the file format. See what that looks like to the left. (You don’t need to change the name of the file–just change the format from excel file to csv. It will put a dot csv at the end of the file name.) If you don’t choose SAVE AS and choose the file format of CSV (Comma delimited) then your file will NOT import.
2) Click on the blue button at the bottom that says Parse CSV.
3) Wait for it! If you don’t include any teachers who already have accounts, it will work. Another pop-up will appear with the Teacher Mgrs info on it. Go to the bottom and see another blue button which says “Import Managers” Click on it to finish importing your teacher managers.
Send your Teacher Mgrs an email–soon
Send an email to your teachers with their password. Tell them where to logon at https://admin.rocketmath.com . Don’t wait too long to let your teachers know about the incoming information or they’ll miss the email and then they won’t know how to enter the system.
Repeat as needed to add more Teacher Mgrs to help you monitor students.
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.
