What is a license?

A Scientific Learning license is a legal agreement with Scientific Learning that, when purchased, lets you use the Fast ForWord and/or Reading Assistant products for a specific length of time and under specific terms and conditions. See your license agreement for details on your license terms and conditions.

Licenses

Scientific Learning offers two license options for K-12 schools in the United States and Canada, which include access to either the Fast ForWord products or the Reading Assistant product on MySciLEARN: site licenses and per student licenses. Read on to learn more. To purchase a new license or to inquire about the terms of an existing license, check with your district or school administration staff, or contact Scientific Learning Customer Support.

Site licenses

A site license permits the students who are regularly enrolled at one school to access the licensed product(s) during the specified license term. When a school purchases a site license for the Fast ForWord or Reading Assistant products, the licensed products may be used on an unlimited number of computers, at the school site only, during the license term.

Per student licenses

A per student license permits one individual student to access the licensed product(s) during the specified license term. Schools that implement per student licenses will typically purchase multiple Fast ForWord or Reading Assistant per student licenses, which are then automatically used on an as-needed basis by the students enrolled at the school.

Note: When all of the per student licenses at your school are being used, any student actions that require available per student licenses may be affected, including:

  • Transferring students to a school that is using per student licenses
  • Assigning a Fast ForWord or Reading Assistant product to students for the first time
  • Updating multiple students from a file

In this case, you can manually move students to any new per student licenses if your school has purchased them or if they’ve been transferred in by a district manager. See Manage licenses for your students and Manage licenses for your school to learn more.
