How can I access my mentee's check-in pre-work?

Prior to each mentoring check-in, students prepare for sessions by completing pre-work within the platform. Check-in pre-work is always editable by students up until the time of the check-in and is viewable by all of their teachers and mentor. Students are not able to access their pre-work after they complete the check-in.

To access your mentee’s check-in prework,

  1. From the Mentor page, click on the mentee’s name
  2. From the mentee’s page, you can view the mentee’s responses to the pre-work on the right-hand side
