How can I control what my class is working on?

With your Live controls you will be able to control:

  • Your students Focus Work: from here you will be able to restrict the type of activities your students can access.
  • Restrict Grade: Here you will be able to set a minimum and maximum grade, this means your students will only be asked questions within the set grade level.
  • House: you will be able to open or close the Sumdog House for your class.
  • Student's choice: You can either allow or disallow your students to choose their own skill.
  • Select Subject: From here you will be able to choose the subject you would like to view on your dashboard or restrict your students to work on that subject for an hour. (all other subjects except Math are a subscription feature)
