2013 End of Year Best Practices
Posted by: Lucia Giacomantonio
Archive Your Groups
At the end of the school year we recommend that you archive your groups. Archiving a group saves all of the work and grades for the semester, and the group is automatically set to read-only access. When archiving your group, you may want to rename the group to include the specific school year or term that it was used. This way, you can easily locate the group in the future.
Some teachers prefer to Archive their groups before classes start in the Fall. If you would like to allow students to continue accessing a group over the summer, make sure to set members to read-only access or turn on post moderation.
Export Your Gradebook
Exporting your gradebook allows you to save a hard copy of your class grades for reference after the school year has ended, without having to unarchive your groups. You do not need to clear out your gradebook at the end of the year, a new gradebook will be created for any new groups that you create the next school year.
Use The Same Account For Next Year
There is no need to create a new Edmodo account each year. As a teacher, you have the ability to join and create multiple groups using the same account. Students can join groups for their classes at the beginning of a new school year and retain a record of their activities in their classes from prior years.
Join Edmodo Communities, or create new groups to stay in contact and exchange resources with other teachers over the summer. If your students will be graduating at the end of this year, try creating an alumni group to help students keep in touch!
If you are transferring to a new school you can easily update your school information on your Account Settings page. If you need any assistance with transferring group ownership to another teacher, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be glad to help out.
If you are transferring schools within your same district and belong to an Edmodo subdomain, you will need to obtain the school code to associate with your new school. Please contact the Edmodo Admin at your school to obtain the correct code.
