How to set up the classroom for K12 students

You can easily set up a classroom for K12 students by creating individual student accounts using their email addresses.


However, at times students may not have email addresses. In such cases, you can create usernames and passwords, so that your students can access your online classroom without email addresses.


To create student accounts by assigning them usernames, please read the how-to article below:


How to add students to the classroom with their usernames instead of email addresses?


It's important to note that after you've created student accounts, you can also manage their scores and grades through online classroom reporting features. For example, if your course contains a quiz, which consists of essay questions, then you can hide the scoring of the quiz from your learners until you've graded their answers to the essay questions.


To do this go to "Advanced Setting" of a quiz and under "Report Availability," select "After all essay are graded manually." Save your settings, once you're done.


Once you've updated the settings, learners will not be able to view their scores after they complete the quiz.
