How to change pupils’ grade/year group

At the start of each school year, Sumdog will automatically move the pupils up a grade/year level (this will be done on 1 August). This will be the grade/year level reflected on their profile.

These instructions will explain how to change the grade/year group of a class of pupils. This will not affect which skills pupils work on in Sumdog as this is set by their diagnostic results.

Select ‘Settings’ at the top of your teacher dashboard

How to set a min/max grade/year level for pupils

These instructions explain how to set a min/max grade/year level for pupils to work on.

The purpose of Sumdog’s diagnostic tool is to place pupils at the right level based on their ability. However, if the pupil was distracted during the diagnostic or an older sibling helped during the diagnostic, pupils may be placed on an incorrect level. If this is the case you should reset the pupil’s diagnostic.

However, you can also set a minimum and maximum grade/year level for your class. This means that pupils will only be asked questions within the set grade/year level regardless of their current diagnostic score. These restrictions will apply during school hours until the end of the school year or until the restrictions have been removed.
