How should I set up my classes on the Second Step dashboard if I’m teaching multiple classes of students in a given grade or across grades?
We recommend creating a class for each group of students you teach. Use any naming conventions that will help you most easily tell them apart, following any naming convention norms set by your school or district, if applicable. Setting up your classes this way helps you track which lessons you’ve taught to each group of students. It also ensures that the lesson completion report accurately represents progress for each group of students receiving instruction.
How can I access the lesson completion report if I want to monitor progress across all classes I teach?
Second Step program users who have been assigned as an Administrator can access the lesson completion report. It is often the case that educators who are teaching classes across multiple grades are designated the role of Administrator within Second Step programs for lesson completion monitoring purposes. If you do not currently have access to this report, check-in with your school’s leadership to request a role change.
