Using Student Logins
To streamline the login process, students can log directly into FastBridge and begin an assessment without staff intervention.
Note: Students will only be able to log in to take aReading, aMath, AUTOreading, CBMmath Automaticity, COMPEffiency, SAEBRS Student, and CBMMath CAP. If you are unsure of how an assessment should be administered, please review the training section in the Training and Resources Tab.
This feature is automatically set up after the first Roster upload of the year. However, if you do not want to use this function, District Managers do have access to enable or disable Student Access. You may also need to maintain it over the course of the school year.
In order to use Student Login Access you will need to a) set classroom availability parameters in Student Login Access and b) create passwords for the students in Student Passwords.
STEP 1. Setting Classroom Availability Parameters Through Student Login Access
This screen will default to show all the classrooms in your district. To set access you will need to specify the date a school, grade teacher, and class should be able to access the system.
Note: Start Time, End Time, and IP address are optional fields.
(A) To see a more condensed view, use the filters at the top of the page to narrow down the list of available classrooms listed below.
(B) If you are looking for something in particular you can also use the search feature in the right-hand corner to look up a teacher or school
(C) If a classroom has access that was already set you will be able to see it in the list. If a classroom does not have access set, the classroom will still appear but the fields will be blank.
(D) To edit the login parameters for a row (classroom), click on the pencil icon. You can adjust parameters that have already been set or enter new parameters for a classroom.
To set access for multiple classrooms at once:
(E) Use the filters in (A) & (B) and either check the boxes next to the classrooms you wish to edit or click the check all box at the top of the grid to edit every classroom currently on your screen.
(F) Click the pencil icon to edit multiple rows at once. This will edit any rows you selected in (E).
Once you have selected to add or edit a parameter you will see this screen:
You will want to:
(A) Select which assessments a student can access. These will appear on the student's screen when they login to take.
(B) Specify the dates these should be available. * Please note- if setting dates for a specific screening period, be sure to change the date again when the next screening period begins.
(C) The time of day in which they can access the assessments
(D) The IP address from which they can access the assessments
When satisfied with the selections, click "Save Access" at the bottom of the pop-up window to complete your changes. You will then need to scroll down and hit "Apply".
STEP 2. Setting Student Passwords
Once the classroom access parameters have been set you will need to set up student passwords before your students are able to log in.
Note: The system will automatically give the students an Id as a default to log in. This Login ID will be the first name of the student plus the student ID that was uploaded with the roster. However, passwords are not automatically created. Before logging in students will have to be assigned a password.
To do this you will want to go to Student Passwords.
To set login and password information for an individual:
(A) You can filter the list that appears by using the dropdown at the top of the screen or
(B) You can filter for the user by typing their name into the search bar in the right-hand corner of the screen.
(C) Click on the pencil icon at the end of the row next to the person you want to make a login and password for.
From there a pop-up window will appear. You can adjust their login if you wish as well as set a password.
Be sure to click the Save Login and Password when finished.
To set a general password for everyone or setting mass passwords:
(A) You can filter the list that appears by using the dropdowns at the top of the screen or
(B) You can filter for the school or classroom by typing the name into the search bar in the right-hand corner of the screen.
(C) Check the boxes for those you want to edit, or click the Check All box at the top to edit every line currently on your screen.
(D) Click the pencil icon at the top of the grid to edit every row you selected in (C)
Once in the edit screen, you will have the option to have the system automatically generate random passwords for your students or you can set a single password for everyone to use:
Be sure to save or set your passwords when satisfied with the changes.
Note you can also print a PDF file of all the passwords. This will be found in the lower right hand corner of the Manage Student Passwords grid. Some schools like to print and cut the document to provide the students with a paper copy of their login and password as they enter the testing lab.
