Admin and Faculty users can establish students' accounts in ExamDriver. This requires two steps.
Step 1: Set up a class.
Go to the Classes tab, and select the Add Class link in the upper right.
A pop-up menu will appear where you can enter all the class information. Class Name refers what your users wish to call the class. A year is recommended, but you can abbreviate any way you wish. Duration is the length of the program, Year is the year students will graduate, and the Graduation/Completion Date is the anticipated day of the program's completion.
Step 2: Add Students.
After the class is set up, you can populate it with students. There are two ways to do this in the Students tab.
For your initial setup, it is easiest to select the Students tab, then click Mass Add Students. A large spreadsheet will appear. You must enter each student's name, email address, and select a class from a drop-down menu in the row. Student ID numbers are not required, but may be useful if you choose to upload scores from your ExamDriver reports to gradebook software. You can add more rows in the bottom left of the screen for classes over 15 students. Unfortunately, you cannot upload a spreadsheet at this time.
If a single student has been added to the class, or was left out of the Mass Add Students attempt, you can click Add Student in the upper right of the Students tab. This will prompt a pop-up window with the same fields.
You can override a single student's graduation date if a student needs to defer graduation, for instance. This is also the window that appears when you want to edit a student's account.
After completing this setup, students will receive an email stating that an account has been created. They have five days to activate that account and setup a password. Note: These messages have a tendency to be caught in spam filters. Have students check their junk mail folders if they have not seen their invitation.
Once the students have been entered, their status will read Invited. If they do not activate their account within five days, it will show up as Invitation Expired. To re-invite them for an exam, click Edit and then click Send a New Invitation Email in the pop-up window.
If you need to edit a student's account, you may do so from the Students tab. Click on the Edit link next to the student's name. The pop-up window will appear, and you can make necessary changes, such as fixing a typo or change their graduation date. You can also update the student's name or email address should any of that information change; their results will stay tied to the account.
