The Student Portal is a website (students.allinlearning.com) where students log in with Chromebooks, computers, tablets, or smartphones to participate in class and remote, complete homework, enrichment activities, and assessments, and see feedback, remediation, and reports.
See our 10-minute training video on the Student Portal on this page.

Ways Students Can Log In
Assessments with Student Devices
- To get to the student login screen, students can either:
A. open a web browser, go to allinlearning.com, and click Login > Student;
B. open a web browser and go to students.allinlearning.com;
C. click a link their teacher posted in their SMS, a calendar, an email, etc.; or
D. click a link in a school student portal (Clever, for example).
- On the login screen, students can either:
A. scan their QR Code;
B. type in their QR Code sheet ID number;
C. sign in with email and password; or
D. use Sign In with Google or ClassLink.
Login Options A and B: Scan QR Code or Type in 10-Digit ID Code
Students will need a QR code to scan or they can type in the ALL In Learning ID found on their individual QR code sheet.
To print QR Code sheets, go to your teacher account > Classes > [choose class] > [select the student or click "select all" at the top] > Print > [choose bubble sheet or QR code sheet](the QR code on bubble sheets is the same, but the QR Code Sheet includes extra info that may be needed).
Students will simply put the QR code up to the camera like this:
If they can't scan for some reason, they can enter the 10-digit ID number from the QR code sheet.
The first time they scan their QR code or enter their ID number, they'll be prompted to create a 4-number passcode (like a PIN), which they'll use each time they log in by scanning their QR Code.
If students forget their passcode, reset it in your teacher account under Classes > [choose class] > [select student] > "Reset Passcode."
C. Sign In To The Student Portal with Email and Password
If your students' email addresses are synced from your SIS or admin student import (you can check in your classes tab or add them), your students can click "First time signing in? Set password here," enter their school email address, and create a password. Then they'll get a validation email to follow. From then on, they can log in with email and password. If they forget their password, they can click the "forgot your password" link to reset it themselves.
D. To Login with Google:
If students have Google accounts and their Google email addresses are in ALL In Learning, they can click “Login with Google.” If they’re currently signed into Google, they’ll be automatically logged in. If not, they’ll be prompted to use their Google email and password.
WebClickers let you use student devices (smartphones, tablets, Chromebooks, and computers) the way you use clickers to engage and assess students daily. It works in person or remotely. You can even have some students with real clickers and some with WebClickers at the same time!
See the WebClickers how-to article here.
Administer an Assessment with Student Devices
You can use your student devices with on-screen content chosen from item banks, imported from Word, PowerPoint, or PDF, or custom-created using our PowerPoint-like interface. You can use hard copies of tests and simply use the device as an electronic bubble sheet. You can have essays, student performances, uploaded pictures, short answers. You can grade submitted work with rubrics. And we've got numerous testing security features as well!
- Teacher Activates the Assessment
In the Lessons/Assessments tab of your ALL In Learning account, find your lesson and click Activate >"Post to Student Portal," choose your class(es), and click "Start for selected classes." (If you haven't yet created a lesson, see this article for creating a lesson with on-screen questions or this article for a quick key to go with a printed test you already have.)
Note: For steps on using WebClicker for live engagement with student devices like computers, Chromebooks, tablets, or smartphones, see this article.
Next, you'll be prompted with a settings screen.
Once you've made your selections, click "Activate."
Then, tell Students to log into the Student Portal at students.allinlearning.com and give login instructions from section above called "How Students Log Into the Student Portal." They'll then select their assignment from the list.
Or, on the grading screen (where you should be after step 2 (above)), click "Embed This Assessment," copy the link, and paste it wherever is most convenient for students: In your SMS, an assignment calendar, online message board, email etc. They'll click the email, login at the prompt, and immediately start the assignment.
- Students Complete Their Test
Students follow instructions in the assignment. When they are finished with the assignment, they can click the "next" button or the "View Summary" button to review their answers and click "I'm Finished." Only their first submission is saved in the report. If they need a "redo," the teacher will need to end the session and reactivate it.
If the Lock Out security feature is turned on for the assessment and students click outside the browser tab the activity is in, they'll see a notification screen saying they are locked out, and to see the teacher. On that notification screen, any teacher or admin can restore their access by typing login credentials.
- Teacher Can Monitor Progress
You will be able to see the results in real-time - as students finish their activities, you'll see their names turn green. If you leave the page, you can get back to it by following step 3 (above) again. You will not see any reports until you get into the grading screen (whether you stay in it after activating or if you click "Leave Session Open" to do something else and come back to it) and click End Session. (Learning activities can be left open for students to access repeatedly.)
- Teacher Can Deactivate the Assessment (If needed)
This is a useful feature if your students haven't finished completing the assessment but the class has ended. As long as the assessment is activated for Engage & Learn, the students will have access to it in their student portal. That means they can log in at home and finish the test. This might be useful for homework, but a lot of teachers want to make sure the test is only completed in the class.
To keep students from having access to the assessment outside of class, you can click on "End Session" to produce a report, or if they need more time and you want them to finish the assessment in class tomorrow, deactivate the assessment for Engage & Learn.
You can deactivate the assessment for Engage & Learn by clicking the Engage & Learn settings button above your list of students and then clicking the Deactivate button. Notice that the Student Portal Settings button turns from green (activated) to red (deactivated).
Tomorrow, when you're ready for the students to complete the assessment, just click that same button and activate it again. The students will be able to pick up right where they left off.
- Teacher Grades Student Work, Short Answers, and Views Annotations
Before you end the session and produce reports, you'll need to score any student work questions.
Click here to learn how to grade student work with a rubric.
Click here to learn how to grade student work with a simple slider.
Also, short-answer questions are automatically scored as correct if the student entered their response exactly correct (case sensitive). You may look at incorrect responses in case you want to make exceptions. Any answers you change from incorrect to correct will automatically apply to all students in the session who entered that same exact response. See here for more info on short answer grading.
If you enabled the "allow student annotation" setting, you can view a student's annotations in the grading screen by clicking the "hand" icon by their name, then click the question mark icon on the question, then "Show annotations." They will also be visible in Reports > Item Analysis > View Question after grading is completed.
- Teacher Clicks "End Session"
Once all student scores are green and you've done any rubric grading or checked on their constructed responses, click "End Session" to close out the activity and see the detailed reports show up in the Reports tab!
