Restricting Student Access to Renaissance Place Software by IP Address

By following the steps below, you can restrict students' access to Renaissance Place software to the computers you identify. You can use these restrictions to make sure that students can only log in to the browser-based Renaissance Place software from authorised computers in your school or school network. This can prevent students from doing practice, taking quizzes or taking assessments from home. These restrictions apply to students only, not teachers, staff members or administrators.

These restrictions do not affect separate client programs that you download and install from the Renaissance Place software. However, students still cannot log in from home using these programs if they do not have the programs installed at home.

Who can do this with standard capabilities?

School Network Administrators

  1. On the Home page, click Product Administration.
  2. Click Set Security Options for Students.
  3. In the Restrict Student Workstations section, you can enter the IP addresses or a range of IP addresses for the computers that students may use to access this software. You can enter a list of individual IP addresses, a range or a subnet range (IP addresses that begin with the same numbers). See the examples on the left side of the page for details. Be sure to include all computers in the school or school network that students may use to access the software. For assistance, contact your technology/computer coordinator or network administrator.
  4. Be sure to use the external, not internal, IP addresses when you set the restrictions. For more help with this, see the Knowledge Base article at

  5. When you have finished entering the IP addresses, click Done to save your changes.
