Congratulations: You’re on your way to providing an amazing level of support to your students!

Your account at qwizcards.com/admin is what you’ll use to set up your classes and assign quizzes and flashcard decks to your students.  To get started, you need to set up your classes and register your students. It’s incredibly easy

1. Setting Up Your Classes and Registering Your Students

To start, log into your account at qwizcards.com/admin. After that, it’s 3 steps.

STEP 1: Click the “Add new class” button.

STEP 2: Give your class a name by typing a name into the “New Class Name” field.  Then make up a registration code. It can be anything that’s unique in our system, and we’ll let you know if it’s not. A lot of teachers use their school’s mascot, followed by the period of the class that they’re teaching. Then click the “Go” button.

Congratulations! You’ve set up your first class. Here’s what success looks like. If you have two or more classes, just repeat steps 2 and 3 above.

STEP 3: Now you have to get students into your class. The way you do that is by emailing them the registration code (which is “wildcats2” in the example above) and the following link:  https://qwizcards.com/register. 

When they get to that page, what they’ll see is this.

Instruct your students to enter your class registration code into the “Registration code” field, and then to complete the rest of the information.

If you want to, just cut the text from the sample email below, adjust as needed, and send it to your students.

Dear Students,

Today’s assignment involves completing an interactive tutorial about [FILL IN TOPIC]. You need to register in order to complete the tutorial. To do that, please go to

https://qwizcards.com/register

When you get there, please enter “[YOUR CLASS CODE]” into the “Registration Code” field at top. Then fill in the rest of the information and click the “Register” button.

Then I’d like you to go to www.sciencemusicvideos.com/apbio2019 , scroll down to Unit [unit number], and complete the tutorials in [TOPIC Number]. 

Note that I’ll be checking completion online, so be sure to complete the assigned quizzes and flashcards.

Thanks!

YOUR NAME

If you want a low tech registration alternative, you can just write your registration code and “qwizcards.com/register” on the whiteboard. Point out to your students that qwizcards is spelled with a “w.”

That’s it. During class, if you reload the “Edit students/classes”, you can watch your classes fill up with registered students.

Each tutorial has a “Student Learning Guide” that guides students through the tutorial. They significantly enhance the learning. You can access these tutorials through the “Tutorial Guides” link in the main menu.

That’s it. Later, you can assign dates to quizzes to organize your “View Scores” gradebook (see below). But do that in a few days or weeks. Now, just get your students on the site. You’ll love the results (and so will they!)

2. Assigning Specific Dates

To make the “View scores” view in qwizcards look manageable, I suggest that you assign dates to the quizzes you assign on an ongoing basis. Here’s how.

STEP 1: Start by selecting a unit. You do this by typing the name of a unit in the field I’ve circled in blue below. You can scroll the list to see the names of all the units.

STEP 2: In the top row of this selection, change the date (blue circle below). Then select the entire set by clicking the checkbox on the far left (red circle below). then click the green “date clone” button (green circle below) to clone this date to everything in the selected set.

SUCCESS! Here’s what success looks like.

For all of the quizzes in the selected unit, you’ve assigned your classes and a date.
