How do I enable Liftoff for my students?

Updated 4 months ago by Haley Harper

Step 1: Within the Classes tab, click on the "Class Management" icon.

Step 2: Click on the Settings tab. Liftoff is currently available for grades 2-8 for Math and Reading (English) subjects only. Teachers will only see the Settings tab if their class contains any math or reading subjects.

Step 3: Teachers have the option to enable Liftoff for students in 2nd grade and higher. Click the checkbox in the Liftoff column next to the student's name to enable Liftoff for that student. Students can have access to Progress Learning, Liftoff, or both.

Step 4: On your homepage, click the Liftoff icon to access Education Galaxy.

Step 5: In Education Galaxy, hover over Student Center and click Manage Users.

Step 5: Click Language Settings.

Step 6: All questions are displayed in English with an option to toggle to Spanish. If you would like to update this for your students, you can search for a student by Grade, Class, First Name, Last Name, or Student ID and click Filter Students. Select the checkbox next to all or select students then click Convert to Toggle, Convert to Spanish, or Convert to English.

Step 7: Back on the Manage Users page, click Read Aloud.

Step 8: If you would like to enable Read Aloud for your students, you can search for a student by Grade, Class, First Name, Last Name, or Student ID and click Filter Students. Select the checkbox next to all or select students then click LiftOff On to enable Read Aloud for your students or click LiftOff Off to disable the Read Aloud option. You can also click the On or Off link in the Liftoff column to toggle the Read Aloud option on or off for individual students.

Step 9: Back on the Manage Users page, click Avatar Usage.

Step 10: In Liftoff, students can customize their avatars. To prevent students from customizing their avatar, you can lock this feature until after school hours. To do this, you can search for a student by Grade, Class, First Name, Last Name, or Student ID and click Filter Students. Select the checkbox next to all or select students then click After School Hours. To turn this back on, click Always on after selecting your students. You can also click the Always on or After School Hours link in the Avatar Usage column to toggle the Avatar Usage option for individual students.

Step 11: In Education Galaxy, teachers can return back to the Progress Learning platform by clicking on the Progress logo.

We highly recommend teachers hover under training in the Liftoff platform and click My Training to access training modules. If you have any additional questions, please email info@usatestprep.com.
