As a standalone single school administrator , you have the ability to reset your student data and update your time settings so your students can begin a new year in Typing Agent. You will log into your account and see the following interface. In order to reset your students, navigate to the green “Admin” button at the top right of your dashboard:
From here, navigate to “School Management”:
You can then select the school that you are looking to reset. In the right flyout menu, locate the “New Year Reset” option to toggle the list of specifics for your reset:
Reset Students for a New Year Options:
Important Note: Some New Year Resets may require a 24hr turnaround time to run. The email address listed in the account profile will receive a status email once complete.
Archive ALL Student Data: Recommended
Selecting this option will save a summary of students’ stats into a specific school year that you have set under time settings. Since you can only do this once annually, it is recommended to do so at the end of the year.
Move Students to the Next Grade Level: Recommended
Selecting this option will move your students manually up a grade. If they are in 12th grade already, they will remain in 12th grade. Note: Advancing a students’ grade level does not change the curriculum itself, but will alter the target settings inside the already assigned curriculum by increasing expected WPM/accuracy.
Remove ALL unused Student Accounts:
This will delete all students who have not yet logged in. This is irreversible.
Reset ALL Student Passwords:
This will allow you to reset all students’ passwords to a specific password of your choosing. Like the option prior, this is also irreversible.
Delete Existing Student Progress: Recommended
This action is irreversible and allows you to delete all progress without deleting the account itself. You may want to archive your students’ data with the first option to save a record of any progress they have made before you take this action in resetting them for the next year.
Important Final Step: Time Settings Update
Once your student data has been reset your next step is to update the Time Settings for your school to the current educational year.
From your admin dashboard navigate to Time Settings. Update Set school year duration & School Educational Year to the current year. Click Save.
After you have reset your students’ progress and updated your Time Settings, you can feel confident that your Typing Agent account is ready for the new school year!
