Create New Accounts

 


Required Account Information

Administrators can create and modify student and teacher accounts.

Both types of accounts require specific user information.

 

Student Information

  • First name
  • Last name
  • Email or Username*

  • Password (minimum of 8 characters)

Passwords can also be randomly generated. 

 

*Student Usernames vs. Emails

While not mandatory, using email addresses instead of usernames allows for students to reset their own password. 

On the other hand, usernames accommodate for students lacking an email address, but require teachers to reset the password for the student.

Usernames are particularly helpful when students lack an email address, but have something like school ID numbers or codes they can use instead of an email account. There is no length or character requirement for usernames.

 

In some cases it may be necessary to add a school specific "tag" if the desired username is particularly common. 

For example:

Desired username: jsmith

Accepted username: jsmith+PittMS 

 

Teacher Information

  • First name
  • Last name
  • Email
  • Password (minimum of 8 characters)

 

 

Single Account Creation

 

  1. From a school page, select either Student or Teacher accounts using the side navigation. 

 

 

 

 

 

After selecting the type of account, the steps to create either a student or a teacher account are almost identical.

 

  1. To create a single account, click the 'Create New Account' button.

 

 

  1. Enter the required information for the desired account type, either student or teacher. 

If creating a student account, choose either a username or email type account.

If creating a teacher account, an email address must be used. 

If you have an intended password you can specify or have Revision Assistant create one. 

Passwords must be at least 8 characters in length.

 

 

 

 

  1. Click ‘Create Account’ at the bottom of the page to complete the process. 

 

 

 

  1. The created account credentials will be displayed on the success page.

 

 

You can navigate back to the account list or create another account by clicking the corresponding button.
