Students follow these steps to log in.
Note: To see student user names and passwords, on the Home page, select Manage Apps & Users. Select Users and then, on the Students tab, select Password Report. Use the drop-down lists to choose the class(es) you want to see and how students are grouped. The students will be listed with their user names and passwords.
- Start your web browser and go to the web address provided by your school or district.
- Select I’m a Student on the Renaissance start page.
- If you know your user name, enter it.
- Enter your password.
Make sure you have the correct password. Student accounts can be locked if you try to log in several times with the wrong password. Student accounts unlock automatically after 5 minutes. If you need to unlock accounts before then, see Unlocking Your Students, or view the student’s information and select Unlock Student on the Details tab.
- Select Log In. You will go to the Home page, where you will see links for each product that your class is using.
If you expect to see programs that are not listed, the school, district, or Renaissance administrator should make sure the student is enrolled in the correct class and that a lead teacher was selected for the class and products were selected.
If some products are not shown and you see a message instead, the Renaissance administrator has decided to restrict which computers students can use to work in some Renaissance products.
Students may be asked to change their passwords if the administrator chose to require this when adding or editing student information. To change the password, enter the new password twice in the appropriate blank fields and select Save.
Importing Data from Other Sources
Before you go through the checklists below, consider whether you can bring in some information from another program. If you have other software with student, teacher, course, and class information in it, you may be able to get the data into Renaissance by doing one of the following:
- Import the data
- If you have purchased the Custom Data Integration (CDI) service, Renaissance data is automatically populated from your student information system. Our nightly data exchange will update students, teachers, courses, classes, and rosters. Contact your Renaissance representative for more information.
Setup Checklist for District Level Administrators, School Level Administrators, and Non-Teaching Staff
To set up Renaissance for the first time, use the checklist below. In some cases, Renaissance may have done some of these tasks for you.
The check marks show who can do the tasks if the default user permissions have not been changed; if user permissions have been added for other users, they may be able to do these tasks as well.
|Task||District Admin||District Staff||School Admin||School Staff||Teacher|
|Add the marking periods for each school (used for goals and reports).|
|Add the days off during the school year for each school (used for report calculations).|
|Add all school personnel and all district personnel who will be using the software, or import their information.|
|Add the students who will be using the software, or import their information.|
|Add the courses of study, which stay in the database for your school from year to year.|
|Add the classes for this school year to the courses. Classes must be added every year. As you add the classes, select the lead teacher and the products the class will use, and add the students. (If you imported classes, edit them to select the teacher and products and add the students.)|
