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] > [click the checkbox next to the student or click the top "select all" box] > Print > [choose bubble sheet or QR code sheet](the bubble sheet QR code is the same, but the QR Code sheet has the ID number in case they have a camera problem).
Students will simply put the QR code up to the camera like this:
If it 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 passcode. They'll enter the passcode each time they login this way.
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 loaded into ALL In Learning from your SIS or admin student import (you can check in your classes tab or add them), your students will be able to click the "First time signing in? Set password here" link, enter their school email address, and enter a password of their choosing. They'll then be sent an email with a validation link they'll need to click. 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.
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!
- Activate the Assessment
In the Lessons/Assessments tab of your ALL In Learning account, find your lesson and click Activate >"Post to Student Portal (Engage & Learn)," and choose your class. (If you haven't yet created a lesson, see this article for 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 realtime in-person or remote student engagement with student devices like computers, Chromebooks, tablets, or smartphones, see this article.
- Teacher Chooses Activation Options
Next, you'll be prompted to choose what options you'd like to use, like whether you want the questions downloaded to the device or will use a hard copy test, if you want them to see their results or not, if you want them to see which questions they missed, if you want them to see what the correct answer was, if you want students locked out if they click outside the browser tab, etc. Once you've made your selections, click "Activate."
- Teacher notifies students to complete the lesson/assessment:
Tell them 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, on their final "summary" screen, they'll click "Score."
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 be notified 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 Monitors Progress
You will be able to see the results in real time as students finish their activities. If you leave the page, you can get back to it by following step 3 (above) again. If it's a learning activity, you could leave it open indefinitely, and the students can go back in and engage it repeatedly. 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 see all the students' names turn green.
- How to 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 and Short Answer Questions
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 that 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.
- 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!
