In order for your students to use Sight Reading Factory through their Google Classroom, they will need to be imported in to SRF. If you have not yet imported your Google Classroom class into SRF, check out this article for instructions on how to do that.
How Google Classroom students are subscribed and enrolled in SRF
The Google Classroom method of signing up and enrolling students is a bit different from the SRF LMS way of signing up students where they redeem a Student Code and create their own profile. Students will not need to redeem a student code. Students will not have a separate login from their Google Classroom account. Students are automatically subscribed and enrolled into the proper class when you import your Google Classroom class into SRF. Once they are imported, they can access SRF from their Google Classroom or they can access SRF directly by logging in with Google SSO and selecting their Google Classroom account.
How Google Classroom students launch SRF assignments
If you haven't yet created a Google Classroom/SRF assignment, you can check out this article for information on how to do that. Below are instructions on how your students can launch Google Classroom/SRF assignments:
From their Google Classroom account - Once their teacher has created assignments in SRF, those assignments will show up in the 'Stream' or 'Classwork' in the students' Google Classroom. They can launch those SRF assignments directly from their Google Classroom account. Google Classroom students are not able to launch SRF assignments directly from the SRF Dashboard. They can only launch SRF assignments from their Google Classroom account.
How Google Classroom students launch SRF practice sessions
We recommend setting your class practice settings (by going to the Class page in SRF and clicking 'Practice Settings') so that your students are practicing using settings that you'd like them to use. Once your students click 'Start Sight Reading' and start a practice session, they will be using the practice settings you have selected for that class and the time spent practicing and # of exercises generated will be reflected in their practice log for that class. Check out this blog post on class practice settings and practice logs. Below are the ways that students can launch practice sessions:
Add a practice link to Google Classroom - First make a Sight Reading Factory 'Topic' for each class (click 'Classwork', click 'Create', click 'Topic', name it 'Practice'). It is important to have a topic because you can drag materials/assignments around and in essence 'pin' them to the top. When you are making a general practice launcher, we recommend having it always pinned to the top, so that the students can easily find it and launch it.
Once the topic is created, from the 'Classwork' tab in Google Classroom, click 'Create', click 'Material', then you'll be on a page to create a Material. Title the Material 'SRF General Practice.' Then click the 'Add Link' icon below the Description field. In the 'Add Link' modal that pops up enter 'www.sightreadingfactory.com/dashboard' and click 'Add Link'. If you are adding the link to multiple classes, you can select all of those classes under the 'For' dropdown. In the 'Topic' dropdown, select the topic where you'd like this practice link to live, 'Practice', then click 'Post' to add it.
From their Google Classroom account (recommended) - Once you have added the practice link, the students can now click the URL and that will log them in and take them to the SRF dashboard.
From their SRF account - While we do recommend the above method of launching SRF practice sessions from their Google Classroom account, students can also launch SRF practice sessions directly from their SRF account. They can navigate directly to www.sightreadingfactory.com and (if not already logged in) log in with Google SSO, go to the 'Sight Reading' tab, and click 'Start Sight Reading' to launch a practice session directly from their SRF account.
