Setting Up Your Mock Student Views


Mock Student Views is a feature that allows teachers to view courses as a student. Enabling this feature lets teachers:

  • Explore how students use the platform to complete their coursework and prepare for mentoring check-ins.
  • Try out specific platform actions students will take for your course—such as taking assessments or submitting projects.
  • Demonstrate the student platform experience to other teachers, students, families, and caregivers (without using a real student account).
