Educator Password Reset
Teachers and school administrators can now reset their own passwords, as well as set student accounts so that students or parents must reset passwords upon next login.
Student/Parent Password Reset
If you are a teacher or administrator, you can prompt students to reset their passwords by logging in to Odyssey, accessing your student list, and selecting the students you want to direct to the Password Reset page. Then, from the Actions drop-down menu above the list of students, select Force Password Change.
You can also force students and parents to change their passwords by accessing your list of students, opting to edit a student’s profile, and checking the Force Password Reset: box for that student and/or the parent.
External Tests Added to Student Progress and Progress Summary Reports
With Student Progress Reports and Progress Summary Reports, NWEA or Scantron test data can now be included in the report results. On the Curricula tab in the report settings section, the External Test option appears among the grade levels you can choose to include in the report. To include NWEA or Scantron data, check the box for the External Test option:
When you check this option, you must also select Math or Language Arts (or both) as subjects to include in the report. This is required because External Test data will always fall into one or both of these categories. If you do NOT select one of these required subject areas, you will see an error message.
After the External Test and subject(s) have been selected, continue setting the remaining report preferences. When the report executes, NWEA or Scantron test data for the subjects specified will be included.
Option to Unsubscribe From Subscription Courses
If you have subscribed to a course created by other teachers in your school or district, you have the option to unsubscribe from the course at any time. For example, if you wish to remove a course from your course list at the end of the year (for the purpose of clearing your roster of courses for the upcoming year), you can use the unsubscribe option to unsubscribe from the course.
To unsubscribe from a course, go to Courses and Assignments > Courses, and select "Subscribed by Me" to show your list of subscription courses. Click the red X icon next to the gradebook icon for the course from which you want to unsubscribe.
Unsubscribing from a course does NOT unassign students' work in that course.
