Overview

This article includes how to view a student’s list of programs, view or edit a student profile, and remove or add your access to a student. The Manage Students menu is featured, but alternate navigation methods to accomplish the same tasks are also included. 

Locate the Manage Students menu

  1. Find the Manage Students link in the upper left corner of most Thread screens. Tap it to view all the students you’re currently working with (top group) and more students you can obtain access to work with (second group) as pictured below.
  2. Tap a student’s name to see a menu of actions.
  3. Follow instructions below for desired action.

Actions in the Manage Students menu

View a student’s list of programs, view or edit a student profile, and remove or add your access to a student using the Manage Students menu. Alternate navigation methods included are also included.

Add a new student profile to Thread

  1. Tap the Manage Students link (top left) in Thread.
  2. Tap (Instructor’s name) Students+ to add a new student profile to Thread (in the example above, tap Sue’s Students+). Note: if all students are already working with you, this link will be a plus sign (+).
  3. Complete the form with student details.
  4. Scroll down and tap Save Student.

Alternate method: Tap the book icon in the top right corner of the screen. Scroll down the left column to select New Student. Enter student details and tap Save in the upper right corner.

View a student’s programs

  1. Tap the Manage Students link (top left) in Thread.
  2. Select a student you’re currently working with, and tap their name.
  3. Select View Programs from the menu to access this student’s private program list.

Alternate method: tap the Private tab (top center) and select a student from the drop-down menu.

Add or remove your access to a student

Tap the Manage Students link (top left) in Thread.

  • Remove access: If you’ve been working with a student and want to stop or pause, tap the student’s name and choose Remove Access. The student will move under (Instructor’s) Students + until you’d like to work with them again. 
  • Add Access: Tap a student’s name you’re not currently working with, and choose Access Student. The student will move to your active group.

Note: If you attempt to remove access to a student who has no other instructors set up in Thread, this warning appears: “You are (Student’s) only current instructor. You will no longer be able to view (Student’s) data. To undo this action, you must contact Thread Support.” Here you may choose to Cancel or Deactivate. To avoid globally deactivating that student in Thread, select Cancel until another instructor has access.

Alternate method: Tap the book icon in the top right corner of the screen. Scroll down the left column to select Access Existing Students. Tap each student’s name to add or remove access, as indicated by a check mark.

Deactivate a student from the organization

If a student leaves your organization entirely, you can deactivate them in Thread. In the future this will be handled in an administrative module. Currently, each instructor must follow steps to remove their access to the student as described above under section Add or remove your access to a student. 

After the last instructor has removed their access to the student, that student is deactivated with this warning:  “You are (Student’s) only current instructor. You will no longer be able to view (Student’s) data. To undo this action, you must contact Thread Support.” Here you may choose to Cancel or Deactivate

For a list of instructors working with the student, visit the reports portal at app.threadlearning.com. There you can login with your usual Thread credentials to view reports for your team. The first screen is a list of students, and under each student’s name is a list of their instructors. Read more about the reports portal here.

Once a student is completely deactivated, their reports will remain available on the reports portal.
