Every new Edulastic account comes with a "Demo Class". The Demo Class is for "Demonstration" of product features. Its a fictitious 7th Grade Math class that shows 3 assessments in various stages of progress.
Demo class is a great tool if you wish to see Edulastic in action as a teacher OR student. We even create an active assignment for your demo students. You can first hand experience Edulastic as a student and find out how Tech Enhanced Items (TEI) work.
How to login as a "Demo Students" in Edulastic?
Your teacher account comes equipped with 10 demo student accounts. To login as a student, simply suffix a student number from 1 through 10 e.g. if your email is firstname.lastname@example.org, your demo student account will be email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, etc. The password for all demo students is edulastic.
You can also find the login information for your demo students under Manage Class menu for Demo Class.
How does the completed data looks like in Edulastic?
Your teacher account comes equipped with two completed assessments. Assessments Interim #1 and Interim #2 are in "Done" status meaning they are flagged as completed. If you wish to see how a real class data looks like once the students have submitted their work, click on the "Responses" button for these assessments.
Creating a mock teacher or student accounts, is a good idea if you're just feeling out Edulastic. You want to see firsthand how the digital assessment app works.
Here's a quick list of DOs and DONTs that will help you manage these mock accounts:
- Do use Demo Class and Demo Class students if you wish to find out the student experience. This avoids the need to create a mock teacher account. Demo class data does NOT interfere with your real class data.
- Do not create a mock student account with your instructor (school) e-mail address. If you do this, you won't be able to go back and create a teacher account without our help. Please also remember you don't need e-mail information to have students join your class (mock or real). Thus even if you wish to create a mock student account add a demo suffix to your email e.g. "email@example.com"
- Do not create a mock class and then turn that mock class into your real class.
- Do not ask you colleagues to join your mock class as students with their school e-mails. Simply give them your Class Code and URL--and then ask them to create student accounts WITHOUT using an e-mail (create a unique username instead).
Once you're comfortable with the app, you can create your real class under Manage Class and then invite all your students to join.Lastly, it's best to have all your students signed up and on your class roster before you assign your first assessment.
