Creating a Student Account - New Portal Beta

September 20, 2016 Kelly Basara

Student accounts allow students at your Institution to use Examplify to take posted assessments, as well as allow access to the Student Portal to view exam results. Manually creating a student account can be accomplished two different ways within the portal depending on your Administration rights.


Creating a Student account within a Course

Whether you are a Institution or Department Admin, or just simply a Course Admin (also known as an Instructor), you can create a student account within your course.

1) Select your course from the My Courses page.

2) Choose the Students sub-tab.

3) Click the Create Student button provided. 

4) Enter student information.

  • First/Last Name - Student's first and last name.
  • Student ID - A student's unique ID used to login to their student portal or Examplify application.
  • Email Address - Student's institution email address where any emails, including reminders, will be sent to.
  • Courses (optional) Start typing in the name of other courses that this student will be assigned to; This field can be completed at a later time.
  • Lab User - When selected, the student can only use a lab device. Leave this option unchecked if allowing the student to use a personal device.
  • Accommodations - Listed below are certain accommodations that students may have attached to their account.
    • Non-Secure - This will provide the student with a non-secure version of all assessments (enabling access to other applications during the exam).
    • Extra Time - This will provide the student with extra time during all assessments (depending on the % increase chosen).
  • Time Zone - Select the student's current time zone.

Creating a Student Account within Users

If you are a user with Institution or Department Admin level access, you can create a student account within Users.

If they do not complete this form, Users will need to edit the student's profile and click Re-send Invite. All status information still applies when creating a student account using this method.
