About school default settings

As a district manager or school manager, you can manage the settings for Reading Progress Indicator at the school level. That way, when you enroll students at your school, they’ll automatically use the preferred settings.

To learn more about Reading Progress Indicator see RPI assessments.

Best practice: Set the default Auto RPI access option before enrolling any students at your school. That way, all students at the school will automatically use the preferred setting upon enrollment. If you’ve already enrolled some students, you can still change the option for those students at the student level. See Set RPI access for students.

Set Auto RPI access for a school

Reading Progress Indicator provides reading assessments that can help indicate how students are responding to program use. To learn more see About Reading Progress Indicator (RPI).

By default, mySciLEARN enables Reading Progress Indicator access for all new students as they are enrolled in your school. As a district manager or school manager, you can change the default setting at the school level. That way, all new students enrolled at the school will automatically use the preferred setting.

This does not impact currently enrolled students. To manage those students see Set RPI access for students.

Warning! If you turn off Auto RPI access for a school, the following features will also be affected. Consider how many students at the school will be using these features and plan accordingly. For example, if most of your students will be using them, it's best to leave Auto RPI on at the school level.

  • Auto Assign and Auto Initial Assignment will be turned off for any new students enrolled the school. You will still be able to set these features at the student level (see Fast ForWord Auto Assign and Reading Assistant Plus Auto Initial Assignment).
  • If your school is using Manual RPI, you won’t be able to assign Manual RPI assessments to any new students enrolled at the school, unless you turn on Auto RPI for those students at the student level (see Set RPI access for students).

Follow the steps below to turn RPI on or off for new students.

  1. In the mySciLEARN Manage section, click the Schools tab to access the Schools page. If you cannot see the Schools tab, you do not have permission to access this page. Contact your district manager for more information.
  2. If needed, click the school name in the Schools List to open the school profile.
  3. Under School Settings, click the Change Settings button.
  4. Under Auto RPI, select a new default option, then click Save.
  5. The change will be applied to all new students enrolled in the system for that school. Any currently enrolled students will not be affected. To manage those students see Set RPI access for students.

Set Manual RPI access for a school

Reading Progress Indicator includes an option that, when enabled, lets instructors manually administer RPI assessments to their students, as a supplement to the assessments automatically administered by the system. The Manual RPI option on the School Settings page lets you control access to the Manual RPI assignment menu at your school.

By default, Manual RPI access is disabled for all schools in the district. When enabled for a school, all instructors at the school will have access to the menu and will be able to assign Manual RPI tests to any of their students who are using RPI. To learn how instructors use this menu see Assign Manual RPI tests.

Important: Before you turn on Manual RPI for your school, check with your district manager to make sure it aligns with your district’s implementation of the Scientific Learning programs. Then, see About Manual RPI to learn how it could impact the students at your school.

Follow these steps to set access to the Manual RPI assignment menu at your school.

  1. In mySciLEARN Manage section, click the Schools tab to access the Schools page. If you cannot see the Schools tab, you do not have permission to access this page. Contact your district manager for more information.
  2. If needed, click the school name in the schools list to open the school profile.
  3. Under School Settings, click the Change Settings button.
  4. Under Manual RPI, turn the option on or off, then click Save.
  5. The change will be immediately applied to the school. If you turned the feature off, any Manual RPI tests in progress will be automatically voided.
