Student Preparation and Passwords

Students can use MAP Skills either at school or at home. As a teacher, you play an important role with getting students ready.

Student User Name and Password

You only need to generate passwords once, but you can generate new passwords at any time, as needed. If students use MAP Skills with multiple teachers, beware of overwriting passwords.

Prerequisite and User Name—Your student roster for this term must be imported by your school or district. Or, someone with appropriate permissions needs to add the student individually. The Student User Name is specified at that time (for details, see: Roster for Students and Teachers).

  1. Open the Passwords tab within MAP Skills.
  2. Select your class or student group.

  3. Choose either method or combination of both:
    1. Custom—Useful if you already have passwords that your students will remember. Type it for each student, one at a time. It can be unique or the same for each student.

      Note: Press Enter or click the check mark——to apply each edit (if ****** still appears, make your edit again).

    2. Auto-generated—Useful for quickly assigning multiple passwords (will be an easy word with four or five letters). Select one or more students (checkbox on left), and click Auto Generate Selected Passwords.
  4. Either print or copy/paste the user names and passwords for students.

Custom Student Groups

If you work with a wide variety of students or a select group, you can save time by creating a custom group. For example, you could have a custom group as part of an intervention effort, and then modify or remove the group when students advance.
