Quick Tips: Emailing Student Results
September 13th, 2012 Kirby
Now that your students are back in class and using USATestprep, you’ll want to track their progress. Of course, you can do this by using the Student Results tab on your Teacher Home page. But you can also have these results sent directly to your email’s inbox.
All you have to do is:
1. Click the Student Results tab.
2. Check the Receive Nightly Email Results box.
Checking this box will create an automated email from our system each night (around 2am Eastern) containing detailed data regarding all of your students’ results for the past 24 hours.
You might want to take a moment, as well, to verify that your email address is accurate and up to date. You can do this by clicking Edit Account underneath your avatar on your Teacher Home page.
One last thing: students will NOT be able to email you directly. They will not be able to see or access your email address through USATestprep.

Quick Tips: Create a Class
September 6th, 2012 Kirby
Creating a class is an easy and necessary step in using USATestprep. By creating a class, you can not only assign students tasks- from the Assignments tab- but you can associate your name with a test subject.
Why is this important? By doing this simple step, students will be able to see your name from a pull down list when completing an activity such as a test, practice activities, or games. This will allow you to see their scores on all of these activities. If you ever hear a student say that they didn’t see your name in such a list, this is the reason why.
To Create a new class:
1.Click the Classes tab.
2.Click the “Create New Class” link.
3.Then type in a name for your class…
4.…and pick the test subjects that you want to associate with that class.
5.The final step is to add students to your class. (You do not have to do this in order to create a class, though: you can always add them later.) You can search for students who have created an account on USATestprep in a few ways. A) You can search by the first letter of their last name (click on the appropriate letter) or B) you can Search by typing in their first, last, or full name.
6.To add a student, just click “+ Add.”
7.You will see all enrolled students on the left.
8.Once you have added everyone, click the green Save and Close button. You’re done!
