Keyboarding Online

May 2021 – Keyboarding Online Pro Tips for Fall 2021

We are hopeful that the pandemic will be a fading memory by the Fall. Communications with our educators seem to point to much more in-person learning this next school year. We have a few suggestions as you wrap up this school year and prepare for the next.

Download & Archive

Though Keyboarding Online saves deleted student data for a limited time to allow educators to restore accidental clicking 😉 we suggest creating PDF copies or downloads of reports for your classes. These become invaluable when a student or parent wishes to challenge a grade, sometimes a year later. You may also want to use Access Schedules to set an ‘End Date’. Apply this Schedule to the students in your classes (see Teacher Manager -> Classes -> select class) to apply a Schedule. This will prevent students from working on their account and changing their grade/scores after the grading period has ended. Helpful reports for archiving:

  • Class Summary Report: This will show the class roster, average scores, effort, etc.
  • Class Progress Report: This will show the class roster along with the average for each lesson.

If you need more details archived, you will want to save:

Progress Reports (individual): This will show all scores for every lesson/line completed along with the lesson average.

Preparing for Fall 2021, do some SYNCING!

We are not talking about taking a dance class. If you really want to make things easier, take advantage of one of the many class rostering solutions we support https://support.keyboardingonline.com/categories/sync-options/.

These rostering options are performed at the teacher level (see Teacher Manager -> Classes -> 3rd Party Sync):

  • Google Classroom
  • Canvas
  • Clever Classroom

These rostering options are performed by district level staff:

  • Classlink
  • Skyward SIS OneRoster is our newest addition
