    Starting on the right side:

    Top box – teacher name, password – please do not change passwords – trying to keep them consistent – school code info

     

    Under Mendon Center Elementary (or name of your school) box – settings: - where you see list of teachers, classes and students – ask your ITSS( or myself) for assistance if you need to add class or students etc. Since we now pay for this we have set number of slots so we need to keep track of how many etc.

    Skills – modify skill plan

    What is a skill plan?

    The skill plan determines the order in which your students progress through your standards.

    Here’s the info from company about the changes:

    Sumdog must determine each student’s level

      • When the students first login they will be “tested” to determine the correct level for them to work at. You can also set assignments, reorder skills, create assessments that will set them at the right level.
