How to create a new student account?

To complete these steps you must be a site or district administrator. If you do not have permissions to create a new user, it is recommended to contact your site or district administrator for Classworks. 

If you are unsure who your district has identified as the administrator, contact the Success Team (hello@classworks.com) and we will be happy to provide a list of site or district administrators. 

If your district is utilizing a rostering system such as PowerSchool or ClassLink, you will want to reach out to your district or school technical team so they can ensure any missing students are being shared with Classworks. If you choose to manually add a student, they may be automatically disabled overnight.

To create a new student user account, complete the following steps: 

1. In the top right, click on your name and select Manage Classworks.


2. Within the Users sub-tab, click "Create New User" at the bottom.


3. Fill in the following required fields: 


  1. First and last name 
  2. Username (must be unique for each user) 
  3. District ID (a unique district ID is required for each user - typically the state testing ID number)  These IDs are important as they connect our assessment partner data to Classworks. If you don't know that ID, check another student that has data to confirm the type of ID needed. 
    1. Use State or Alternate ID to include an additional ID for the student (this is typically used when multiple third-party assessments will be used)
  4. Password 
  5. Grade
  6. Date of Birth, Gender, Race, and demographics (Optional)


4. Add the student to the School Group. This group adds the student to that school and allows teachers at the school to find and add the student to their class. 






5. Once everything is filled out, click Save at the bottom!
