The Dashboard is the first page you see after you sign in. Teachers and administrators use it to access the tools and resources that their districts or schools have subscribed to. The Dashboard shows the tools and resources by default:
|More tools and resources may appear on the Dashboard if your school or district has subscriptions to additional products, such as eAssessments, Reports, Oral Reading Records, Writer’s Universe, ePocket Chart, Benchmark Universe Library App and more.|
A student’s Dashboard has the following tools and resources.
