Every student added to your group has access to Onsego courses.
Click on any of the tabs below to get more details.

Onsego courses

As a group leader, you can access Onsego’s courses just like the students.

Click the Home tab button to see all the subjects and bonuses.

Each subject has many modules, and every module has lessons and quizzes.

For Example, in the Language Arts course, you will see seven modules.

Each module includes the diagnostic practice test called “Can I Skip It?”. These practice tests help your students decide about omitting lessons they are familiar with, so students can quickly move forward to the next module in the subjects. Feel free to take any lessons, quizzes and practice tests and If you have questions about the course content, please let us know.

Adding Students to Your Group

To add students, click the Add Students tab and click the highlighted sentence “subscription page of your account
Clicking on that link will reveal the Sub Account information for that subscription.

Next, click the green button that says Add Subaccount.
In this part, you must type the student’s name and email address.

When adding new students, it is important to ensure that the “Send the NEW members welcome email” option is checked. Then hit submit.

Then, our system sends an invitation email to the students you just added, and they can join Onsego for free and start learning.

As soon as they become active students, you will see their activities under the Activities page, and I will tell you more about them later.

Removing Students from Your Group

Sometimes, you may want to remove a student from your group and re-use the seat.

To do so, go to the My Account page and click “Sub-account”. You will be presented with a list of your students. Then, click the link “remove” to delete a student from your group.

Students that are not longer in your group stay in The Onsego database for another 30 days but will have no access to lessons and quizzes.

Error Message When Adding Existing Students

Occasionally, you may encounter an error when attempting to add a student who has already been registered in the Onsego database.

This is a safeguard designed to prevent duplication of student accounts. However, rest assured. There’s a straightforward solution to this issue.
To resolve this, navigate to the first field of the form labeled “Add an existing username.” In this context, the “username” refers to the student’s email address.

Thus, enter the email address of the student you wish to add in this field.
Once you’ve done so, click on the ‘Submit’ button.

If successful, a confirmation message will appear, signifying that the student has been added to your group despite being previously registered in the system. This process ensures an efficient use of resources and reduces redundancy in our system.

Activities and Reports

As an educator, it’s important to have effective tools to monitor and track your students’ activities, ensuring that you select the most appropriate method that aligns with your institution’s requirements.

One such resource is the “Activities and Report” page, which presents a comprehensive timeline of student engagement.

Upon navigating this page, you’ll encounter a form above a section displaying the five most recent events pertinent to your students. This form is crucial in extracting more detailed insights about your students’ interactions.

Initiate the information retrieval process by clicking “Filter information by group and user’s name.” Here, you can refine the data according to specific parameters, such as the student’s name, the subject matter, or the date the activity commenced.

We recommend viewing our forthcoming video tutorial that guides you through our grade book feature for a broader perspective on students’ academic performance. This resource is valuable for getting a comprehensive snapshot of student achievement.

Grade Book

The Grade Book is a feature offering an automated grading system that categorizes students’ scores from Onsego practice tests into one of three categories: ‘Unlikely to Pass’, ‘Not Sure’, or ‘Likely to Pass’.
Onsego provides two types of practice tests within its courses. The first type is the module-end practice test, which is named after the respective module, such as the ‘Number Sense’ or ‘Equations’ Practice Test.

The second type is a final practice test module that comes at the end of each course.
The Onsego platform offers four courses, each corresponding to a GED subject: Math, Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies. Each course includes a final practice test module.
An important detail to note is that each ‘Final Practice Test’ module contains 11 practice tests. Our system calculates an average score based on the tests completed.

For instance, if a student completes 2 out of the 11 practice tests, the average score will be derived from these two attempts.
Additionally, our system updates the average scores with each new attempt, considering only the most recent test taken.

Therefore, if a student retakes a practice test, the score from the latest attempt is the one that counts.

As a general rule, a student who achieves a ‘Likely to Pass’ grade on a minimum of three final practice tests is typically considered well-prepared to take the GED Ready (the official GED practice test) and the actual GED exam.
