Once a student’s account has been created by the Administrator, they will receive instant access to all of your school's courses. For help on providing students with their login details, see the Student login details section on this page.
You can restrict access by removing students or year groups from a particular course. See the section on Removing students from courses on this page.
If you like, you can create smaller teaching groups within individual courses for reporting and assessment purposes. View the section on Creating teaching groups below for more information.
Use the Student Slips Generator tool to share login details with your students.
Alternatively, you can export a list of student usernames. A student's default password will be the same as their username and they will be prompted to change this when they first log in.
Please note that if the Administrator did not allocate a student username when they imported the details, this will be generated by Kerboodle
Teacher users can reset passwords for individual students, but for bulk password resets please contact your school’s Kerboodle Administrator. Information is available on the Administrator support page.
To reset password for an individual student, log in to your Kerboodle account, select a course and click on the User Management tab.
Select the student whose password needs to be reset and click the Preview button above the list of students. Tick the Reset Password checkbox and click OK on the message that appears.
Click Save Changes. The student’s password will be reset to their username and they will be required to change their password when they will next log in.
All students have default access to all your school's Kerboodle courses. If you do not want a particular set of students to access a course, you can remove their access by following the steps below:
You can give students access again by following the same steps and re-selecting the box next to the group.
All students on Kerboodle will have default access to all the courses to which your school subscribes. Once the Administrator has imported students and groups onto Kerboodle, you can create smaller teaching groups within individual courses for assessment and reporting purposes. You can use these teaching groups to reflect your different classes or sets.
There are two different types of teaching group: a Manual group and a Self Sign-up Group.
A Manual Group allows you to select a number of students from a single year.
A Self Sign-up Group requires the students to sign themselves up. You generate a code on Kerboodle, pass this out to your students and they can then enter this when they enter the course to sign themselves up.
Note: If you want to add students from multiple year groups to a teaching group, you will need to create a Self Sign-up Group.

The Administrator is the only person who can create student users on Kerboodle. Each institution can only have one Administrator, so we recommend that you nominate the staff member who is responsible for managing student data.
To see whether or not you have an Administrator, check the top of your Kerboodle home screen when you log in.
If your school does have an Administrator, their name and contact details will be displayed in the top left of the home screen, beneath the heading Administrator.
If your school does not have an Administrator, see the section on Inviting an Administrator on this page.
