This page will help you to get started with the Classroom Monitor app and find your way around. If you are already confident with this, we have other pages on recording assessment and saving evidence via the app.

Logging In

Step 1: Click on the Classroom Monitor icon on your device.

Step 2: 
Ensure you have an Internet connection.

Step 3: 
Enter your normal Classroom Monitor username and password. You can use the email address that you registered with if you prefer.

Loading Curricula and Groups

Once you have logged in, you will be prompted to load curricula and groups onto your device. This is so you can continue to save assessments and evidence even when you aren't connected to the internet.

Step 1: Select up to 3 curricula by ticking the relevant boxes and pressing 'Save'. Curriculum data will be downloaded.

Step 2: Select groups by ticking the relevant boxes and pressing 'Save'. You can select as many groups as you require up to a maximum of 200 pupils. Assessment data will be retrieved for those pupils for the selected curriculum.

NB: Retrieving curriculum and assessment data may take a couple of minutes depending on what you have requested and the strength of your internet connection. However, you will not need to do this again until you log out and/or switch curricula or groups.

You can change the curricula and groups loaded into the app by clicking on the 3 lines in the left hand corner of any page and selecting 'Curricula and Groups' from the menu.

Recent Activity

Once you have loaded the curriculum and group data, you will see a list all of the recent activity in your account. This will cover everything that has been saved recently in either the browser or app version of Classroom Monitor.

Existing assessments and evidence can be edited from here.

  • Click the pencil icon to view and/or edit the group's current assessments for an objective.
  • Click the plus icon next to an objective to attach evidence to an objective.

To record assessments for objectives not listed, click the 'Assessment' tab indicated in the image. Then follow the instructions on the recording assessments in the app help page.

To record evidence for objectives not listed, click the blue '+' button in the bottom right hand corner of the screen. Then follow the instructions on the recording evidence in the app help page.

Logging Out

It is important to logout before allowing anyone else to use your device.

Step 1: Click the 3 lines in the top left hand corner of the 'Recent Activity' and 'Assessment' screens.

Step 2: Check Pending Uploads. If you have any pending uploads, these should be sent to Classroom Monitor before logging out. Instructions can be found on the App FAQ page.

Step 3: Click the power icon circled in this image to logout. NB do not log out if you have pending uploads

Other Functions

There are a number of other functions accessed from the 3 lines in the top left hand corner of the 'Recent Activity' and 'Assessment' screens:

  • Curricula and groups allows you to change the curriculum and groups loaded into the app as long as you are connected to the internet.
  • Change password: This will change you password for your Classroom Monitor account in the app and on the website.
  • In pending uploads, you will see any assessments or evidence that haven’t yet been uploaded to classroom monitor. If you logout before these have uploaded, they will be saved but they will not appear in the browser markbooks until they have been given the chance to upload.

Help can be accessed at the bottom.
