What can I do on the Class List page?
The Class List page is used as an administrative tool in which you can add, move, remove and edit pupils that are signed up to your class account. To easily access your class list, select Class List in the left navigation bar.
Adding a Class
To add a class, select + New class on the Class List page.
After selecting + New class, you will be prompted to name the class and select the years of pupils in your class. You may select one year or multiple years depending on whether you teach a single year or a class with pupils from multiple years. This will not limit the content you or your pupils have access to.
Finally, you will be prompted to add pupils to your class. You can also choose to turn on password protection, which would require pupils to enter a unique password when they log in to Freckle. (Learn more about pupil login.)
Otherwise, select + Add Pupil and enter each pupil's full name and select his or her year. Continue to add pupils in this way.
After creating a course, you will see instructions for how to get your pupils logged in to Freckle.
Adding Pupils to Class List
To add pupils to an existing class, scroll to the class in your class list, select the gear icon and then select Add pupils.
Once you have selected Add pupils, a screen will pop up that looks like this:
This will help you determine whether you need to add a new pupil or whether you were actually trying to move a pupil from one class list to another.
If you are trying to add a new pupil, you will see the following:
Select + Add and enter each new pupil's full name and adjust his or her year (if needed). Continue to add pupils in this way. Select Edit Class to finish adding pupils to your class. You will now be able to see that pupil listed in your class. When that pupil logs in to use Freckle, they will have to use the name that you gave them, so make sure the spelling is correct.
Editing Pupils on Class List
If there is an error with a pupil's name or year, you can edit the name by selecting the gear icon to the far right of the pupil's name and then selecting Edit pupil.
From here, you can edit the spelling of a pupil's name, for example, or change the name to an agreed-upon nickname that the pupil prefers to be called. You can also change a pupil's year if you entered it incorrectly, or change the language settings to include Spanish support. Note: Spanish supports are only for Freckle's Maths program. Select Save after editing.
Transferring Pupils to Another Teacher
The share and transfer options in the gear icon drop-down list make it easy to pass pupils along to another teacher/class. This action is useful if pupils in your Year 4 class are moving to another teacher for Year 5, for example. It is can also be used when a pupil changes teachers at any point in the school year.
Start by selecting the pupils that you would like to transfer. Pupil names will appear blue with a tick next to them when they are going to be transferred to another teacher. You can select as many pupils as you would like to transfer to a teacher.
Next, select the teacher to transfer the pupils to. If you do not see the teacher's name in the drop-down list, it means the teacher is not signed up with Freckle or has not affiliated their account with your school. Ensure that the teacher creates an account or chooses the correct school affiliation before proceeding.
Once you are finished selecting pupils and have the teacher chosen, select Transfer in the lower-right corner of the page. A pop-up will prompt you to double-check the pupils you are transferring and the teacher to whom you are transferring them.
Select Transfer Pupils when you have confirmed the move.
Your pupils will move along with their data, ensuring that they transfer seamlessly to their new class. Their new teacher will have access to this data and have a good understanding of these pupils' progress and performance.
To transfer an entire class list to another teacher, select the gear icon for the class list and then select Transfer class to a teacher. A pop-up window will prompt you to transfer pupils. Use the drop-down list at the top of the screen to choose a teacher at your school to whom to transfer your pupils.
Removing Pupils from Class List
To remove a pupil from your class list, select the gear icon to the far right of the pupil's name and then select Remove pupil from the drop-down list. This function is useful if a pupil leaves your school and moves to a different school that is not in the same school network (within the same school network, we encourage teachers to transfer pupils and their data to the new teacher).
A pupil account with no data will be completely deleted. However, if the pupil has practised on Freckle at all and has data, this pupil's account will stay saved in the system (though the account will be removed from your class list and reporting pages). It is possible to get a pupil back on your class list and get the pupil's data back on your reports once removed.
To do this, scroll to the bottom of the page and select See my removed pupils . You will then see a list of all of the pupils you have removed.
To move a pupil back onto your class list (and to see his or her data in your reports again), select Restore to the right of his or her name. That pupil will now appear back on your active class list in your first class. From there, you can move the pupil to any of your classes.
The reason we remove pupils this way is that our target is to help teachers retain pupil data and track pupil progress over several years. Instead of deleting pupils from the system entirely, you can remove them from your class list and reports or transfer them to another teacher. You are still removing pupils from your class list with both of these actions.
We encourage our teachers to transfer their pupils to their next teacher at the end of the school year, helping those teachers to understand the progress and performance of the pupils in their new, incoming class.
Removing a Class List
It is a new school year and you are looking to start fresh. We highly recommend transferring pupils to next year's teacher so that their data and progress on Freckle is not lost. To learn how to do this, scroll up to the Transferring Pupils to Another Teacher section. If you do not wish to do this, for whatever reason, (because pupils are going to a new school or because next year's teacher does not use the program, etc.) you can remove your class by simply selecting the gear icon for the class list and then selecting Remove class from the drop-down list.
As the section before mentioned, pupils who have practised on Freckle and have data will stay saved in the system but will be removed from your class list and reporting pages. You will no longer see these pupils on your class list, and it will appear empty if you remove them all. You can then add new pupils to your class list for the upcoming year.
The gear icon for each pupil will allow you to reset their data on Freckle. Resetting pupil data will delete it completely, and you will be unable to retrieve this data.
When you select Reset pupil options in the drop-down list, a pop-up window will open. In that window, you can reset specific maths domains for a pupil. Choose the subject(s) or domain(s) that you would like to reset. The pupil to whom this account belongs will have to retake the diagnostic in whichever domain was reset.
See this topic for more information on sharing pupils.
Setting Password Protection
There are two options for pupils to log in to Freckle. The first option is to have pupils use their first name, surname and a class code associated with their classroom. The second option is to enable password protection. When password protection is turned on, pupils log in using their first name, surname, class code and password.
Print Login Cards
You can print login cards for your pupils to help them learn how to log in to Freckle or to send home. You can select to Print Login Cards for all of your classes, one of your classes or one pupil.
To print login cards for all of your classes in your class list, select Print Login Cards in the upper-right part of the page. Select Print at the top of the page that opens, and you will have all of your logins for all of your classes.
To print login cards for one class list in your account, select the gear icon for the class list and then select Print login cards. On the page that opens, select Print at the top of the page.
To print a login card for an individual pupil, select the gear icon to the right of the pupil's name and then select Print login card. On the page that opens, select Print at the top of the page.
