Class Name, Class Code, and Site

Class Name

  • Click into the Class Name field to edit the class name.
  • If you have co-teachers and you edit the class name, it will edit in the co-teachers accounts as well. This also works vice-versa; if the co-teacher edits the class name, it will edit in the main teacher's account as well.
  • For some districts, class names will be overwritten by the nightly sync. Reach out to our chat feature if you have questions!

Class Code

  • This code is used to provide to students if they are joining classes by class code.
  • This is not the code used to give to parents to link to their family accounts. If that is what you need, you'll want to locate the student code instead.

Site

  • This is the site (school) the class is rostered in.

Subject, Language, and Grade

Subject

  • Choose the subject of the class.
  • This will appear in the gradebook for students and families.

Language

  • Choose a language for the class.
  • This selection does not have an impact other than a point of reference in the Class Info section.

🌟 Grade

  • Choose a grade level for the class.
  • This is especially important when it comes to assessments, gradebooks, and report cards. If a grade is not selected, it is possible that one of the aforementioned components may not work properly. Many of the settings in Otus are dependent on the grade level of a class.

Adding Students

The ability for teachers and administrators to add students to classes may not be available in all districts. If you do not see the Students section, that indicates your district relies on their SIS (Student Information System) for rostering, and that student's are not able to be added manually. Reach out to us in the chat feature for more information if needed.
