There are two reasons that you would not be able to access your Assessment Manager. Please check with your school’s designated contact that the password has not been changed, and ensure that your subscription has not expired before contacting our customer services team.

By going to the results screen for your class and clicking on the specific homework task you require, you can edit the results for your students. Simply enter “0” into the scores for Q1 and Q2, and click ‘Save’. This will effectively reset the results for this task, allowing for a clean slate.

As students can be members of more than one class, this will require two steps. First of all, in the admin section for your class, select the tick box next to the student in question and click “Add selected students to another class”. This will bring up the following screen.

add student to class modal

Select the required class, and specify what work you want them assigned before clicking “Add”.

If you want the student to be a member of two classes then stop there, otherwise follow this by clicking “Remove selected students”, select the work you want moved to their other class and click “Remove”.

When you first enter the Results screen, the “Only show allocated work” filter on the left hand side is selected by default. To view all of your students’ results, deselect “Only show allocated work” and click “Apply filter”. This will show the results for all the tasks that your students have completed. You can also download this as a spreadsheet.

On the Results screen for the class, you can use the “Include work not done yet” button to see all the work that is outstanding. You can also download this as a spreadsheet.

If a student is only in one class, all of their allocations will appear on the individual allocation screen. You can see which tasks are outstanding using the “completed” column.

If a student is in more than one class, you will need to view their allocations for each class in turn.

Remember that to move a student, you add them to the new class then remove them from the old class.

If you choose to keep outstanding work from the old class, this will be visible to the student in My Homework, along with any new work they have been set.

It won’t be visible in the Assessment Manager as allocations for an individual are viewed in relation to a class. If you want to be able to see the old allocations, keep the student in the old class as well until they have cleared all of the outstanding work. Remember to deselect them when the old class is set any new tasks though or they will never clear the list!

When a student completes an allocation, you will be able to see the result regardless of which class the allocation was assigned from.

You can view the individual question marks and number of attempts on the “Allocation” modal.

It is not possible to edit the number of attempts.

We have replaced all of the specific spreadsheets and reports we previously had with a more flexible class results grid that lets you hone in on exactly the results you want.

You can use the filters on the left to choose a particular level or Booster Pack. You can then download the spreadsheet for this selection to do any analysis you require.

You can delete tasks in the Allocation screen to keep your list under control. The results for these tasks will still be available in the Results screen. Deselect “Only show allocated work” on the left hand side to see them. </p>

Help for students

When you go to the MyMaths website you will need to log in using your school username and password. You will then see some more boxes labelled ‘My Portal’ where you can put in your personal username and password. In here you should see your homework on the first screen you come to. If you can’t see it, then make sure you are on your homework page by clicking the ‘My Homework’ tab on the left hand side of the page.

MyMaths is used completely online, so you don’t need any special computer equipment or software to use it. All you need is an Internet connection and a web browser like Internet Explorer, Firefox or Google Chrome. To make sure it works correctly you should also check that you have updated your web browser (for Internet Explorer please make sure it is version 9 or above) and that you have installed an up-to-date version of Flash. You can also use Android tablets and mobile devices for MyMaths, but if you are using an iPad then you will need to download the free Puffin Academy app in order to access the MyMaths website.

Help for parents

When you go to the MyMaths homepage you will need to log in using your child’s school username and password. You will then see some more boxes labelled ‘My Portal’ where you can put in your child’s username and password. In here you should see your child’s homework on the first screen you come to. If you can’t see it, then make sure you are on your homework page by clicking the ‘My Homework’ tab on the left hand side of the page.

As MyMaths is a fully online resource you will need nothing but an Internet connection and an up-to-date web browser with inbuilt Flash, or a recent version of Flash installed on your computer. MyMaths supports all the major browsers such as Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, but please make sure your Chrome or Firefox browsers are up-to-date and your Internet Explorer is version 9 or higher. Most Android tablets and mobile devices should be able to access the website using the Chrome or Firefox browser apps (among others), but users of the iPad and other Apple devices will have to use the free Puffin Academy app. We understand it’s important for MyMaths to work on a range of tablet devices, including iPads. To get content to you as soon as possible, we will be launching fully iPad compatible resources in a phased approach during 2015.
