We always appreciate hearing your feedback about StepsWeb and finding out what we can do to improve your experience. This update is dedicated to the most requested features and is available for use now!
Notifications when Students Earn Certificates
Educators will now get a notification on their welcome screen when students finish a level. If you’re in a larger school, then you can ‘favourite’ classes to only receive notifications from them. This will also cause those classes to be listed at the top of any class filters.
Custom Words Manager
Ever wondered what words your students have been adding? You can now view all custom words on your account, and delete the ones that you don’t want. If necessary, you can turn off the ability for students to create custom words from with the School Settings button on the welcome page.
You can find the Custom Words Manager inside the Tools button when viewing any wordlists while logged in as an educator.
Order Assigned Work
Particularly over the holidays, it can be helpful to assign several pieces of work, but require them to be completed in order. This is now possible!
Simply tick the box labelled Locked until all existing work is completed while creating the assigned work.
Prevent Students from Changing Passwords
Sometimes students have difficulties remembering their own passwords, particularly when they keep changing them! You can now stop students from being able to change their passwords.
You can find this option under School Settings in your educator login, called Students Can Change Own Passwords.
