Students should enter their email address and password in the blank fields on the login page. 

**If the email address is connected to a SSO login (Google, Microsoft) or if your district has rostered with Clever, click the corresponding button located at the bottom of the page. Students will be prompted to choose an account that is already logged in, or enter the SSO email address. If students use the same device to login to Otus each time, they should only be prompted once.

Select Assessments from the left-hand toolbar.

The initial assessment module screen displays the title and type of assessment, point value, and due date (if it was set by the teacher) of all assigned assessments. Students have the ability to filter by class by using the right drop down menu. 

Students should find the appropriate assessment they would like to begin and click it.

A popup will appear that will provide additional information about the assessment. This includes the duration of the assessment if it was set by the teacher, the subject, teacher's name, class, and indicate if multiple attempts are allowed. If the information is correct, students can click start.

Another screen will appear prompting students to click start when they are ready to begin the assessment.

Students should click the button located in the upper right hand corner of the screen and select Full Screen mode before beginning the assessment. 

When the student completes the assessment, they will be prompted to submit the activity, or they will receive a notification that there are items that have not been attempted. Once a student submits an assessment, they are unable to go back and answer questions that were left unanswered. 

If a student has to return to the assessment at a later time and is not ready to submit for a grade, they may do so by clicking onto another module within the platform. This will automatically save the students work and enable them to return to the assessment at a later time.
