Creating Classes

In order to get the most out of your Read Seed data, it's important to create classes within the course to keep students organized. Watch the video and read the information below for a brief overview of creating classes in Read Seed.

When visiting Read Seed for the first time, you will be prompted to create a class or classes.

Clicking the Add class button will take you to the class creation screen. Give your class a name and click Save changes.

Next you will be taken to a screen where you can add users to your class. If you create your class before the students have attempted their first Read Seed activity, then you might not find them among the list of users. In most cases, accounts on Read Seed are created when users click on the Read Seed link in the school's learning management system. The picture below shows a class before any student accounts have been made. In this situation, the teacher simply clicks on the Back to Top button at the bottom left.

If the students have already visited Read Seed, their names will appear in the list of Potential users. Add students to you class by clicking their names then clicking the Add button. If there are too many potential users to display, you can search for your students individually by typing their names in the Search box. 

When you've finished adding students, click the Back to Top button to return to the Teacher Dashboard.

Any time you wish to add or remove students from your class, you can do so by clicking the Assign members button in the summary statistics area of the Teacher's Dashboard.
