Editing Characteristics Assigned to Students

Who can do this with default capabilities?

School Network Administrators, School Network Staff, School Administrators

Note: Students must be enrolled in a school before you can assign characteristics to them. If you are a school administrator, you can only assign characteristics to students who are enrolled in your school.

If you are a school administrator and you are assigned to more than one school, on the Home page, select your name, then select Change Role to choose the school you want to work with before following these steps.

  1. On the Home page, click Users.
  2. Click View Students.
    • In the School drop-down list (if available), choose whether to search in all schools or a specific school. Do not choose Students Not Enrolled in a School; only students enrolled in a school can have characteristics assigned.
    • School administrators cannot search for students outside of their school; they do not have a School drop-down list.
    • Choose a year from the drop-down list or leave All selected.
    • Choose a class from the drop-down list or choose to search for students in any class, those not in a class or all students. (You can only choose a specific class if you are searching in a specific school.)
    • If you want to find a specific student, enter the student's first name, last name, ID and/or user name. You do not need to enter the entire name or ID; the software can find partial matches.
  3. Click Search.
  4. The students who matched your search will be listed under the buttons. Click the name of the student whose characteristics you want to edit. (If the list is long, you will see only a part of it; you can click and to move forward and back in the list.)
  5. Note: If the student is assigned to more than one school, the student may be listed once for each school and will be marked with an asterisk (*). Be sure to click the student's name for the school where you want to assign the characteristic(s). Characteristics will be assigned only at the school you select.

  6. Click the Characteristics tab on the Student Information page.
  7. Tick the box by each characteristic you want to assign to this student. The characteristics apply only at the school that is listed.
  8. If you do not see a characteristic that you would like to assign to your students, you can add it by managing characteristics.

  9. Click Save to save the characteristics you have selected. If you want to change information on other tabs before saving, click those tabs and make your changes before you click Save. If you do not want to save your changes, click Cancel.
