Today’s Tip is for all users with Teacher Administration access!
To kick off the 2016-2017 school year with a bang, we are sharing back-to-school tips that will help you dive right into Quaver’s resources!
Are students able to keep their QuaverMusic.com accounts, but be associated with a new class in the GradeBook?
The answer is – YES! Students can keep their QuaverMusic.com accounts and move to a new class in your GradeBook for the new school year!
If you use the Teacher Administration Tools to organize your students into classes and give assignments at QuaverMusic.com, it may seem overwhelming to think about migrating all those students to new classes next year. Do not fear. It’s much simpler than you think!
We recommend naming your classes by school year and classroom teacher and setting an end date for each summer so that you can “Archive” the class and then enroll them for the new school year. This would allow you to keep any historical data but not confuse students!
How to enroll students with QuaverMusic.com accounts into new classes in GradeBook:
1) Head to the Teacher Admin Panel
After you’ve signed into your QuaverMusic.com account and clicked the yellow TEACHER TAB, click on the TEACHER ADMIN icon located on the School Bulletin Board.
2) Go to Manage Classes
Once in the Teacher Admin main menu, access your list of classes from the green MANAGE CLASSES guitar pick.
3) Add a new class
Click ADD at the bottom the screen to add new classes.
4) Fill in your class information
Complete the fields – few are optional but you want to make sure to fill in the Class Name, Grade, Period, Start, and End Dates. Click SAVE to add to your Class list.
5) Enroll Students
Now that your classes are setup, all you have left to do is enroll them in their new classes. Select the yellow ENROLL STUDENTS guitar pick from the Teacher Admin main menu.
6) Receive the Class Code
Select a class from the Select Class dropdown and notice the Class Code that appears in the top left corner of the screen.
This Class Code is the key to enrolling your students in one simple step! There’s no need to add students manually or create new accounts.
7) Distribute the Class Code
The next time your students visit QuaverMusic.com to log in, instruct them to enter the NEW Class Code in the Log In Screen.
Once logged in, you should see students appear in your Class List on the Enroll Students screen, and they will have access to any assignments created for the new class!
