How to change students’ grade/year group

At the start of each school year, Sumdog will automatically move the students 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 students. This will not affect which skills students 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 students

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

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

However, you can also set a minimum and maximum grade/year level for your class. This means that students 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.
