Student Tracking and Administration Option
Schools can choose to have a single username and password for Sunshine Classics or they can choose to use the administration and student tracking facility which provides each student with their own log in details.
The individual login for each student allows teachers to:
- Create and edit student profiles.
- Create and edit reading groups.
- Allocate texts to individuals and groups for guided, independent or home reading.
For Student Tracking and Assessment, teachers will have the following valuable data:
- E-books students have opened and the time spent reading them.
- Activities completed and the results.
- Recordings of students reading the text to listen to and printable Reading Record Sheets.
- Students’ reading history.
