How do you create or add to a list of students assigned to you? By using the roster and roster tags feature. How do you view students in your roster? And how do you add more students to this list?
To start, go to the 'Students' page by selecting 'Students' in the navigation. Most schools will upload a Roster file at the beginning of the school year that will assign various students to teachers. So, you will probably already have some students assigned to you. To view them, check the box that says 'Show My Rostered Students.'
A box called 'Students Assigned to Me' will appear with a list of your assigned students by name, and with their roster tags. To add another student to your roster, you'll first need to search for the student, by using the alphabet search feature. Select the letter that corresponds to first letter of the student last name. All students with this as the first letter of their last name will appear in the 'Students not Assigned to Me' box.
To add a student to your roster, you'll first need to create a tag. This could be a tag for a new group of students, or maybe you want to add this student to a current roster. Type the tag name into the space that says 'Enter One Tag', and then check the box next to the student you want to add. This will automatically add this tagged student to the 'Students Assigned to Me' box. This student has now been added to your roster.
In addition, you can add more tags to students in your list, by typing in the empty label under 'tags'. Simply type the tag, and select the 'Tab' or 'Enter' key on your keyboard. To delete a tag for any student, select the 'x' on the tag.
