How to Search for Students
Open any of your classes. It does not have to be the class your student is in, because the search function will show you results from all your classes.
On the left-hand menu of your class, type in the student's name, ID, email address, or other identifier into the search bar.
If the student you are searching for shows up, click their name to be directed to the student's dashboard.
Otherwise, click See all results... to see a full list relevant to your search terms.
What actions does the student search provide?
The search returns information for students from your school or district, even those in other teachers' classes. It will also return emails or usernames that partially match your search terms.
This is great for finding a student when you aren't sure what class they are in or, troubleshooting why a student's email or username don't seem to be registered.
There are two common actions you can complete from the student search.
- Viewing the Student Dashboard
- Adding the Student to Your Class
Viewing the Student Dashboard
You can view a student's dashboard by clicking the View Student button.
It's important to note that this button is only available if you are currently in a class the student is enrolled in.
The student dashboard includes student management options in the Student Details box. You can use the Student Details to edit the student's account.
Adding a Student to Your Class
It's important to note that the Add to This Class button is only available if you are not currently in a class the student is enrolled in.
In the screen capture above, you can see only one student found in this search is enrolled in the current class.
Three other students are in classes that belong to other teachers and can be added to the current class.
Adding a student to your class, will not remove them from other classes they are enrolled in.
