8. Now that you've got your class started learn how to
Please note that when you register with Knowledgehook, you will see a sample mission to show you how reports work, and the Assess Prior Knowledge mission, which you clicked yes to assign when you created your class.
That's it! Then you can begin browsing content (and bookmarking content for use in class), assigning Missions, or adding students.
The class sizes are limited due to the fact that the class would start to lag and have issues loading for both you and the students if there are too many students in one class. The classes are supposed to be based on a normal class size of 30-40 students, and our Reports feature is based around that limit. Having a larger class would cause Reports to break or not load correctly for large class sizes. We do offer the ability to split classes into different grades.
Classes that were created before August are considered from the previous school year and those do not roll over into the new school year. Your class will say "Class Ended". You need to create a new class for this year.
Home is the additional practice students can do in their free time. They do not have to go into that class on their accounts. This appears when a student created an account first before joining your class. It should not affect anyone's ability to do the work in your class, as it's a simple switch on their top drop down Classes menu, but all students that joined your class should automatically go to your class first.
A class can only be one language, so you would have needed to create two classes, one in French and one in English for separate grades. When creating the new class, make sure to choose French as the language of the class while you're picking the grade during class creation.
You won't be able to change the base language of the class after it's created, but you can assign French content instead of English content. Their UIs will continue to be in English unless you have each of them manually change it to French in their class settings. In your Activity section, there is a language drop down menu next to the grade drop down menu. Change the language to French for our French content. This is the same thing you would have to do if the class language was chosen to be French as well to assign French content.
