How to edit the characteristics for multiple students

Who can do this with default user permissions?

District Level Administrators, District Staff, School Level Administrators

  1. Use the drop-down list to choose how you want to search for students. If you choose any option besides All, a second drop-down list will open so you can choose a specific school, grade, teacher, or class - you can also type the name of the item to find it faster.
  2. Option What It Does
    All Search all students that you have access to (all students for district users, or your students for school-level administrators). For district users, this option also finds students who aren't in a school or class.
    School Search for students in the school you specify. This option is only available for district users and for school-level administrators who are in more than one school.
    Grade Search for students in the grade you specify. This option is only available for district users and for school-level administrators; for district users, students who aren't in a class or school will be included.
    Teacher Search for students by the teacher of their class(es); you can enter the teacher's name or click the field and select the teacher from the list. This option is only available for district users.
    Class Search for students by the class you specify.

  3. If you want to find all students that meet the criteria in step 1, select Search without entering anything about the student.
  4. If you want to find a specific student, enter part or all of the student's name, user name, or ID; then, select Search.

    Search tips:

    • If you include a space, the software assumes you are looking for a first name and last name (such as "John Smith").
    • If you enter a last name first and then a first name, include a comma (such as "Smith, John"). This is especially helpful if you are using a last name that includes a space (for example, "Del Castillo, Miranda").
    • If you enter characters without a comma or space, the software will look for names, user names, and IDs that start with that text. For example, "ann" might find students with the first name "Ann" or "Annabelle" or the last name "Anning", user names like "ann32", or IDs like "ann36278".
  5. The search results will appear, showing each student's name, grade, student ID, and currently assigned characteristics.
  6. 50 results are shown at a time. If the search finds more than 50 students, select the arrows above or below the list to go to the next or previous page of results.

  7. Check the box for each student you want changes applied to. At the bottom of the page, a banner will open; select Add if you want to add characteristics to the checked students or Remove if you want to remove them.
  8. In the window that opens, check the characteristics that you want to add or remove for the students. Then, select Add Characteristics if you are adding characteristics or Remove Characteristics if you are removing them.

    You will see your changes in the table.

  10. Repeat steps 1 to 5 as needed. When you are done, select < Back at the top of the page.
