Guide to your new Coach Dashboard (managing classes, rosters, and more)

 

Overview

The Coach dashboard is the teacher homepage on Khan Academy. You can always get back to it by clicking the top-center Khan Academy logo, or by clicking your name in the top right-hand corner of the screen and choosing Coach dashboard from the drop-down menu. The redesigned and more class-centric Coach Dashboard provides an easier-to-use, faster, and more scalable coaching experience.

Note: Students that you are coaching but who are not in a class yet will appear in the Students page (seen below) but not in a class Roster yet. You can add students to individual classes from the Students page.

Classes

The Classes page allows you to view and easily access any classes that you’ve created. You can also add a new class from this screen.

Clicking on a class will take you to its Assignments tab, where you can see active assignments, including their names, due dates, assignment dates, completion levels, and more. Check out the Assignments Guide for more information on this feature! For all classes, the Activity, Roster, and Settings tabs will also appear in this view.

For teachers who have been using Missions, please note that missions themselves are not assignable using the new Assign feature, but you can still select a mission for your class and view your students' progress in the Progress tab!

In the Activity tab, you can see the time that students have spent on their work. Dark bars represent time spent outside of school hours (8 AM to 3 PM) and light bars represent times spent during school hours.

Hovering over a student’s bar will give more details about how the time was spent.

The Roster tab shows students who are enrolled in the class and gives the option for adding new students with Google Classroom, email invitations, by creating new accounts, or with a class code.

Note: To add students that you already coach to a class you have created, use the Students tab. Select the checkbox next to the students you want to add, and select Actions and then Add to Class.

The Settings tab allows you to change the class name, subject, whether it is set up for coaching on the SAT, and whether it is synced with Google Classroom. It also allows you to subscribe to a weekly class summary and to delete the class.

Note: If you are a math teacher using missions with your students, then you have access to two additional reports. Follow the links to learn more about the Progress tab.

Students

The Students page gives a list of all students you are currently coaching. From this page, you can add new students, add your current students to classes, or stop coaching students. Note that these students may not be in individual classes yet, so if you are in a class Roster tab and looking for a student who is not showing up, check your Students tab from the dashboard to see if you are coaching them!

Note: If you coach more than a few hundred students, the reliability of your accounts could be compromised. If you plan to coach hundreds or thousands of students, please create multiple accounts!
