Users List

The Find a User page displays the User Names (up to 50 per page in alphabetical order) of all the student and teacher users at your school along with the Full Name, School, and Role (or type). The total number of users is displayed at the bottom of the page.

You can search for a specific user by typing all or part of a user's name or user name in the Searchfield and click the magnifying glass icon. All users matching the search criteria and role will be displayed.

  • Click Users.  From the Find a User page, click the Add button and select Add new student
  • Select the appropriate school and enter the student's first and last name, their Student ID and their date of birth.
  • If you would like the student to use their Student ID as their user name and their date of birth as their password (recommended), check the box under Account Settings for Generate User Name and Password.   
  • If you would like to use a different user name and password, uncheck the Generate User Name and Password box, and manually enter a user name and password, then confirm the entered password.
    NOTE: User names must be unique to the PEG Writing system.
  • Click Save. The student account has now been added to the selected school. The teacher will still need to add the student to the course in order for the student to start using PEG Writing.

Inactivating a Student Account

  • To inactivate a student account, find and select the student, and click the Student's name.
