How do I register my child for courses?
As a parent you have two options for registering your child to access courseware on Kidport. The first option is to register yourself as a parent. Once you register and sign-in, you will be able to set-up a sub account for each of your children. Using this account, you will be responsible for registering your children for specific courses. The second option, only available for children ages 13 and older, is to register your child as a student. Once your child signs in to their account, they will be responsible for registering for specific courses and for any other purchases (e.g., tutoring services) that they make while using Kidport.com.
How can I view reports on my child's performance?
When you log-in to your account as a registered parent on Kidport.com, you will be presented with a dashboard of options for managing your children's student accounts. One of these options is "Progress Reports". This option will let you select any of the available reports for any of your children who you have registered as students on Kidport.
How do I access courses?
When you log-in to your account as a registered student on Kidport, you will be presented with a dashboard of options for managing your student account. One of these options is "My Courses". This will list all of the courses that you or your parent have selected. You can click on any of the listed courses and review the content interactively by unit and lesson.
How do I complete assignments?
As you go through the lessons for the courses you have selected, you will find that most of them include assignments to help you to better understand the course material. In many cases, the assignments can be completed online as you would any online form: by selecting the correct answer from multiple choices or by entering your answer in a text box. Once you complete the assignment, you will click on the "Submit" button to submit the assignment for review. In some cases, you may need to complete the assignment offline. In those cases, you will be able to upload the file containing your assignment using the tools available within the course itself.
As a student how do I review my progress?
While you are signed in to any course, you will be able to monitor your progress toward completing the course through the Lesson Completion feature in the header at the top of each course page. The Lesson Completion feature will let you know how many lessons and how many assignments you have completed out of the total required for the course. You can also monitor your performance by clicking on the Course Performance link which will present your scores on individual assignments and tests (whether they are system or tutor-evaluated) as well as your overall score for the course through all lessons currently completed.
