Music Educator FAQ

Can my students use this service?

Yes, educators have the option of purchasing accounts for their students at a highly discounted rate. These accounts give students unlimited access to Sight Reading Factory® for one (1) year and way to practice the very important skill of sight reading on their own. The accounts for the educator and students are also linked so that the educator can track usage, monitor progress, and give assignments for assessments.

For more information on the benefits of student accounts, see Feature Focus: Student Accounts.

How do student accounts work?

When an educator buys student accounts for their students they receive a Student Code. They can then give that code out to their students who use it to subscribe to SightReadingFactory.com. Student accounts are sold at a highly discounted rate and offer a way for the educator and student accounts to be linked so that the educator can track usage, monitor progress, and give assignments for assessments.

For more information on the benefits of student accounts, see Feature Focus: Student Accounts.

For pricing information on student accounts, see the Student Account Calculator on the Pricing Page.

Can I organize my students into classes?

Yes. Educators can organize into classes any students that signed up using that educator's Student Code or students that they may share with other educators in their school or organization.

Students can be enrolled into classes two different ways.

  1. After an educator creates a class, they will be presented with a list of students that have redeemed their student account code and they can click on each student's name that that they wish to enroll in that class.
  2. Students can also enroll themselves into available classes. After an educator creates a class, that class will show up on the student's dashboard under the 'Classes' Tab. The student just has to click 'Enroll' next to the appropriate class to enroll in a class and see any assignments for that class.

Can I use SightReadingFactory.com to assess my students?

Yes. Educators can create sight reading assignments for students to complete by recording themselves and submitting the recording to the educator for grading.

How do I remove students from my roster who are no longer in my class?

We call this Archiving a student and it is useful for students who still have an active subscription from redeeming your student code but are no longer in your class. Archiving a student removes them from your enrollment list and 'Students' tab but it does not delete any of their data. To archive a student:

  1. Go to your Dashboard and select the 'Student Codes' tab.
  2. Click 'View' by the student code that the student(s) who you want to archive redeemed.
  3. This will take you to a list of all students that redeemed this code. Click 'Archive' by the student(s) that you wish to archive.

You can un-archive a student at anytime by going to the same page as described above and clicking 'Un-archive' by the student.
