How to Add Multiple Classrooms





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, it is possible for students not to have email addresses. In such cases, you can create usernames and passwords so your students can access your online classroom without email addresses. You can simply put student usernames to add them to a classroom.


It's important to note that after you've created student accounts, you can manage their scores and grades through online classroom reporting features. For example, if your course contains a quiz consisting 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,


Step 1: Go to Settings >> Advanced of your quiz.


Advanced Settings of a Quiz


Step 2: Scroll down to the Release Report option and select "Manually, after essays are graded."


Save your settings once you're done.


Release Report


Once you've updated the settings, learners cannot view their scores until after you’ve graded their answers.
