May 2021 – Keyboarding Online Pro Tips for Fall 2021
We are hopeful that the pandemic will be a fading memory by the Fall. Communications with our educators seem to point to much more in-person learning this next school year. We have a few suggestions as you wrap up this school year and prepare for the next.
Download & Archive
Though Keyboarding Online saves deleted student data for a limited time to allow educators to restore accidental clicking we suggest creating PDF copies or downloads of reports for your classes. These become invaluable when a student or parent wishes to challenge a grade, sometimes a year later. You may also want to use Access Schedules to set an 'End Date'. Apply this Schedule to the students in your classes (see Teacher Manager -> Classes -> select class) to apply a Schedule. This will prevent students from working on their account and changing their grade/scores after the grading period has ended. Helpful reports for archiving:
- Class Summary Report: This will show the class roster, average scores, effort, etc.
- Class Progress Report: This will show the class roster along with the average for each lesson.
If you need more details archived, you will want to save:
Progress Reports (individual): This will show all scores for every lesson/line completed along with the lesson average.
Preparing for Fall 2021, do some SYNCING!
