    2. get and view targets for students.
  2. Finding and resetting students’ usernames and passwords.
  3. Managing student demographic information manually.
  4. Managing group information manually.

Importing students – step-by-step guide for importing student and group data into e-asTTle.

In most schools, managing demographic and group information is done via an import from the Student Management system, rather than manually on the Manage Students screens. Some functions in the Manage Students are only available to e-asTTle administrators.

Generating usernames

Once a student has been created in e-asTTle (either manually or via import), this student will automatically be assigned a username. Your student will need to enter the username when logging in to the student website.

The rules used to create a username are:

  • first letter of first name.
  • first three letters of second name. 
  • three numbers.

For example, Charlotte Tu’inukuafe would be username: ctui001. 

If only one or two letters of the last name are available, use those only. For example, Susan Li would be sli001.

The next student with a first name starting in "C" and first three letters of last name "Tui" would be ctui002.
