The more details of the issue you give us, the faster we can work out what's gone wrong and how to fix it.
Common causes and fixes
See the following table to see fixes for our most common issues:

For more information on how our points and scoring system works, you can read through our help guide: How does the points/scoring system work?

Screenshots and videos
Show us what's happening. Screenshots and videos are easy to take and tend to provide us with a better understanding of an issue than a description would.
Taking a screenshot on Windows
- Hold down the +PrtScn
- Paste the image directly into the body of your email (right-click→Paste or Ctrl+V).
Taking a screenshot on MacOS
- Hold down ⌘ Command+Shift+4
- Click the Capture Entire Screen button in the onscreen controls. Your pointer changes to a camera.
- The image should save to your Desktop. Attach it to the email.
Providing Additional Information
The following questions outline what other details it'd be helpful to include:
- Are all the students in your class affected by the problem or just individual students?
- Approximately what time did they experience the issue?
- What is the model of the device they are using?
- If they are encountering the issue when using the app, do they still have trouble when they try using the website?
- Is the screenshot you've provided before the error occurred or after? Ideally we would like screenshots of both instances to refer to.
