The course profile is where you enroll your students, quickly evaluate assignments and review student progress on class work.

Add Students

Clicking the “Add Student” button will open the Add a Student window. There are two primary ways to enroll students in your course:

1) The course invites link, which you may provide to students you wish to enroll in this specific course. Each course has a unique invite link and it is important to keep track of who you are providing the link to.

2) You may enroll your student manually using an email address, first name, last name and a temporary password so that the student may enter their account.

When you manually enroll a new student to Passport, an account is created for them and the only way they can access Passport is the temporary passcode you provide. Remember to communicate with your student so they have access.

If the student already has a Passport account, the form will auto-populate when you enter the student email.

Pencil Icon / Trash Can Icon

You may remove a student from your course by selecting the trash can icon. This is appropriate if the student drops the class or if the student was accidentally enrolled using the wrong course invite link.

Selecting the Evaluate Submitted Assignments button will bring you to the Evaluate tab for this specific course, where you can review the assignments that have been assigned to students in this course.

Student Profile

You may select the name of a student from your course roster to review a student’s profile. The student profile will provide an overview of the assignments that have been assigned and displays the status of the assignment. Reviewing the student profile is a convenient method of checking up on a student and making sure they receive the attention they may need.
