Setting up the student accounts for my classrooms.  I just accidently added a group of students with a .csv upload to the wrong classroom.  There appears to be no way to manually move them across to their correct classroom and I am unable to delete their accounts.

Any suggestions to get the moved into their correct classroom and out of the "test" classroom?  I'm probably just going to rename test to Grade 8 but for my own information is there a way to move a student or do they have the option to Leave a classroom and then join another?

New ot Scratch and ScratchEd. 
Have my class set up, kids are coding so life is good.
HOWEVER, is there a way for me to see their work easily?  Is this what the studio function is for?  Am I missing a help file or video on this topic.  I watched the intro video which was helpful, but when he created the sample "Studio" he really didn't explain its function.
I appologize if I have missed this post or instruction.
Thank you!

I've been trying to test adding in a student account from the email link, but any username I try using has already been taken according to the error message that gets generated.

The only thing that's worked is the CSV import. 

I'm also unclear about the accessibility of the Student account: If I close a class, does the Student account that is created become unusable to the student? Is the workflow to get them to create a personal scratch account and transfer the work done from the teacher created Student account, to their new personal account?

So excited about teacher accounts!  Yay!  I have a quick question...once I've set up each class, and added my students, how do they log in?  Do they sign in with my teacher username and password?  

Also, I set up a test student to try to figure this out myself...how can I delete that test student?  Thank you!

Hi Karen. Good questions! The password for student accounts depends on how you created their accounts. Did you use a CSV, email link, or create the accounts one at a time?

If you used a CSV then you predetermined their password when you created the accounts.
If you used the email link, then students create their own password by following the link.
If you created the accounts one by one, then the password is your Teacher Account username (they will be prompted to change this after logging in for the first time).

In order to delete the test account, you will need to sign into that account and delete it through the Account Settings menu.

We have created a Teacher Account FAQ page as well as a video about Teacher Accounts that I think might be helpful in answering some of your questions :)

I hope this helps!

So excited about the teacher accounts! Is there a limit to the number of students that can be assigned to a class? I noticed that the csv file upload has a limit of 50.

Thank you Scratch Team! You are all heroes!

Hi Bradley! Nope, there is no limit to the number of students that can be assigned to a class. :)
