How do I reset my students' passwords?

As a teacher, you can instantly reset your students' passwords in the Control Panel.

If you would like to bulk reset passwords for multiple classes, please contact

Resetting passwords for a single student

Navigate to the Classes section of your Control Panel or directly click into a class from your homepage.

From Classes your classes will be listed on a series of tiles at the top of the page. To open one of your classes, simply click either the name of the class, or the  View Class button.

You can also scroll down to see a full list of classes or search a student's name in the search bar at the top of the page.

By clicking the reset password button on the relevant student row, you can reset their password in a couple of ways.

You can choose whether you would like to email the student a secure login link or generate a temporary password to pass on to them.

If you chose to email the student, you will see this dialogue. The email they have been sent will be valid for the next 72 hours.

If you have selected the option to generate a password, a dialogue window will open with the temporary password for you to copy and give out to that student. This temporary password will be valid for 72 hours.

After you have reset your students’ passwords, students with emails will receive an email asking them to set a new secure password, and students being given temporary passwords will be forced to set a new secure password the first time they log in.

Resetting passwords for multiple students

You can also select multiple students to reset passwords for by ticking their accounts and selecting Reset Passwords at the bottom of the page.

You can then choose whether you would like to email the student a secure login link or generate a temporary password to pass on to them.

Selecting Reset passwords using email will automatically send emails to your students. Selecting Generate temporary passwords will allow you to download a spreadsheet of their temporary passwords. You will need to select the Download passwords (CSV) button to do so.
