Weekly Tip: How to Efficiently Enter Student Information

Today’s blog tip will focus on how to efficiently set up your students’ information on My Day Web App. If you’re like me, often many of my students share similar class schedules. When we created My Day Web App, it was critical that one could input a student’s schedule and use the same schedule for multiple students. If there’s one thing I dislike about data setup, it’s repetitious entering of the same information. Talk about mind-numbing. That’s where the My Day Web App feature of Add From Another Student comes in handy.

Click the “Add From Another Student” button located in the bottom left and choose which student’s schedule you’d like to copy over.

 

First, click on a student that you’ve entered in your account. Enter all of the subjects or classes for this student under the Time Slots tab. Don’t forget to add any specialists. Note: You may also want to enter the objectives on which you are collecting data under the Objectives tab while you’re working on this student. You can always come back later and do it, too. Your choice.

Once all of the subjects are entered for a student, head back to your class list/students page. Now, think about all of the other students on your list who may also share the same (or similar) schedule as the student you just set up. One at a time, click on each of them, go to the Time Slots tab, and choose Add From Another Student (bottom left corner). You may then choose the student that shares the same schedule and click Copy. Viola! The same subject list is now present. This will also work for the Objectives list if you are measuring the same objectives.

You can also use the Add From Another Student feature if students share similar schedules. Simply copy the desired schedule from another student, then rearrange the subjects using the arrow icons or delete unnecessary subjects using the trash icon. If you need additional time slots, simply type in the subject you will need, click Add Time Slot, and use the arrows to move the subject to the desired location on the list.

I hope this helps make your My Day Web App setup quicker and easier!

Happy Teaching,

Sara
