Manage Dyknow Classes Manually

Follow

INTRODUCTION

Dyknow's Classes feature enables Dyknow Users with the Tech Coach or Administrator role to:

  • Manually create, edit, and archive Classes;
  • Sort and review Classes by Class name, assigned Teacher, School, SIS Class ID, # of Students, and Last Monitored Session; and,
  • Identify Classes that have never been monitored and Teachers who have (not) used DyKnow recently.

This document is a resource for Dyknow Administrators and Tech Coaches to understand how to:

 

CREATE A CLASS

When a Dyknow Class is needed, but this Class does not exist in the school's Student Information System (SIS), manually creating a Class is a great option.

Follow the steps below to manually create a new Class in Dyknow.

1. Click the gear icon DyKnow_Web_App_-_gear_icon.png; you will be redirected to the Admin Settings.

2. Click the Classes tab.

3. Click Create New Class.; the Create Class modal will appear.

4. Complete the *Required fields on the Details tab, including

  • Class Name
  • Teacher
  • Start Date
  • End Date

5. Click the Students tab in the Create Class window to add students to the Class roster; otherwise, continue to Step 7.

Note: You can choose to not enroll any students in this Class and then the Dyknow Teacher assigned to this Class can manage their own roster.

6. Search for and select student users to add to this Class.

7. Click the Save button.

 

EDIT A CLASS

Follow the steps below to manually edit a Class in Dyknow.

1. Click the gear icon DyKnow_Web_App_-_gear_icon.png; you will be redirected to the Admin Settings.

2. Click the Classes tab.

3. Search for an existing Class and click the associated blue pencil icon to edit the Class.

Note: If your school is mass-importing school roster data into Dyknow:

  • Classes are matched based on SIS Class ID, so we do not recommend editing the value of the SIS Class ID field in Dyknow. If you create a new Class, leave the SIS Class ID field blank.
  • The next data import will overwrite any manual roster edits for Classes with a SIS Class ID. If your Class roster(s) should be "permanently" updated, please update your SIS first, and ensure these updates import into Dyknow.

4. Click Save.

 

ARCHIVE A CLASS

To avoid the loss of Class Analytics data, any Class that has been monitored cannot be deleted. However, Classes can be archived.

Follow the steps below to manually archive a Class in Dyknow.

1. Click the gear icon DyKnow_Web_App_-_gear_icon.png; you will be redirected to the Admin Settings.

2. Click the Classes tab.

3. Search for an existing Class and click the associated blue pencil icon to edit the Class.

4. Set the Class End Date to expire.

5. Click Save.

    Is there an easier way to add teachers to a class. I see a drop down list of all teachers in our district that takes several minutes to load before I can sort through our 10,000+ teachers. Is it possible to search for teachers like you can students?
